Srey Nhor is a garment factory worker from Cambodia. She has five siblings and enjoys watching movies and helping her family around the house.
Ten years ago, Srey Nhor had an ear infection. This infection caused a cholesteatoma, or an abnormal skin growth, to develop in the middle ear behind the ear drum. For this reason, Srey Nhor experiences hearing loss, ear discharge, pain, and tinnitus. She can’t hear people well and she’s nervous that she’ll go deaf in the affected ear.
Srey Nhor traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On December 13, she will undergo a mastoidectomy procedure in her left ear. During this procedure, ENT surgeons will remove the cholesteatoma. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $842 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
She says, “I just hope my hearing can improve.”
