Rithy is a construction worker and painter from Cambodia. He has one son and two daughters. He likes to spend time with his family when not working.
A year ago, Rithy developed nasal polyps, noncancerous growths in the lining of the nasal passage. For this reason, he experiences nasal congestion, a runny nose, and difficulty breathing. It is difficult for him to breathe and sleep.
When Rithy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for half an hour seeking treatment. On December 12, doctors will perform a nasal polypectomy to remove the polyps. After recovery, he will be able to breathe more easily. Now, he needs help to fund this $267 procedure.
He says, “I hope I can breathe normally and don’t have nasal congestion after the surgery.”
