Sorng is a factory worker from Cambodia. He has two brothers and two sisters. He likes do housework in his free time.
Five months ago, he was in a motor vehicle accident that caused paralysis of his left arm. He has been diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury on his left side. The brachial plexus is a nerve network that transmits signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Injuries to this nerve network can result in loss of function and sensation. He cannot move his arm and is in chronic pain.
Sorng traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On August 8, he will undergo a brachial plexus repair surgery. After recovery, he will be able to use his arm again. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $637 to fund this procedure.
He says, “I hope after the operation, I can move my arm and hand without any pain.”
