Koemsrorn is a two-year-old from Cambodia. He is an only child from Kampong Cham Province, any enjoys playing with his toys in the village.
When he was four months old, Koemsrorn 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, Koemsrorn experiences consistent fevers and hearing loss. He is often upset and has a difficult time hearing others and sleeping due to discomfort.
Koemsrorn traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On November 19, 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.
Koemsrorn’s mother said, “I hope that my son will recover from his illness and no longer have any more pain or hearing loss.”
