Uon is a 33-year-old factory worker from Cambodia who is married with three sons. She likes to watch Khmer dramas and listen to classical music in her free time.
Two years ago, Uon developed a pterygium, a growth of pink, fleshy tissue, in each eye. This caused Uon to experience blurred vision, redness, and burning. Due to these symptoms, she does not feel comfortable enough to work or go anywhere on her own.
Uon traveled for three hours with her aunt to reach our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for treatment. She is scheduled to undergo eye surgery to remove the pterygium from both eyes on May 31. To fund the treatment, CSC is requesting $148 to cover the total cost of her procedure.
