Sieng is a first grade student from Cambodia. She likes to watch television and play with her toys, and her favorite subject in school is painting and reading.
When Sieng was one year old, she received a poorly administered injection, which resulted in the contracture of her left knee. She is unable to fully straighten her leg.
When Sieng learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On May 9, surgeons at CSC will perform a quadricepsplasty procedure of her left leg to help release the contracture and allow her to walk and bend her leg without difficulty. Now, Sieng needs help to fund this $413 procedure.
Her mother says, “I hope that after surgery, my daughter will be able to move her leg normally.”
