Hai is a 60-year-old farmer. She has two daughters and one son. Her husband died 20 years ago, so Hai lives with one of her children. When she isn’t working, Hai enjoys having to time to play with her grandchildren.
Hai has nasal polyps in each nostril that cause bad odor, discharge, and pain. She has been using medications she purchases at a pharmacy to manage these symptoms but her condition has not improved. Fortunately, surgeons at Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) are able to perform a bilateral polypectomy to alleviate these symptoms permanently. She needs help to raise $343 to fund the surgery.
Hai said, “I really hope after the surgery my nose will be better, my headaches will be reduced, and the infection will go away. When I am healed, I will help my children with their work.”

Hai underwent nasal polyp surgery.
Hai traveled to our Medical Partner Children’s Surgical Center (CSC), where ENT surgeons performed a surgery to restore her sinus ventilation and normal nasal function. One day after the procedure, surgeons removed her nasal packing, and Hai received steroids and a course of antibiotics. Hai was able to return home but came back to the hospital one week after discharge for suture removal and an additional endoscopic exam to make sure she was healing well. She is hopeful her headaches and recurrent infections are a thing of the past, and that she will resume a normal life.
Her daughter told us, “I feel happy for the surgery and hope my mom gets better soon.”
