Thuon received surgery to reduce pain and restore function in her arm.

Her doctor says, “Thoun is back home with improved function. She continues physiotherapy at home and said she looks forward to helping her mom around the house. She also said her arm and hand looks more normal, and she is learning to use her hand in ways she couldn’t before the surgery.”

Thuon was born with cerebral palsy. As a result of her condition, she has developed contractures on her wrist and elbow. The limited function of her arm prevents her from working.

Thuon likes to watch TV and sing along to pop music. She is hoping for corrective surgery so she can help her family work on their rice farm.

For $300, we can provide Thuon with a left wrist fusion and tendon release treatment. This will reduce pain and restore function to her wrist and elbow, allowing her to help her family on the farm and live a more active life!
