Nakry is a mechanic from Cambodia. He has a daughter and enjoys working on his farm.
When he was two years old, Nakry 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, Nakry experiences right ear discharge, hearing loss, and recurrent infection. It is difficult to hear and he has recurrent infections, which are uncomfortable.
Nakry traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 13, he will undergo a mastoidectomy procedure in his right 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.
He says, “I hope I can hear better than before.”
