Davin is a 10-year-old 3rd grade student. He has three older brothers and one older sister. Davin’s parents are rice and lemongrass root farmers. Davin told us how much he enjoys playing football.
Two years ago, Davin had a severe ear infection. This infection caused a cholesteatoma, or an abnormal skin growth, to develop in the middle ear behind the ear drum. Now, Davin experiences ear pain, discharge, hearing loss, and tinnitus. He has difficulty hearing his teacher or classmates and is often absent from school due to his ear pain.
Fortunately, on June 1st, Davin will undergo a mastoidectomy procedure in his left ear. During this procedure, ENT surgeons will remove the cholesteatoma. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $926 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Davin’s parents say, “I hope his hearing improves and he can enjoy school again.”

Davin underwent surgery of his inner ear so he can hear and communicate better.
After surgery, Davin remained in the hospital for several days and was given antibiotics and eardrops to aid in healing and decrease any risk of reinfection. After his ear fully heals in a couple of weeks, his hearing will improve, and he will no longer have frequent infections or ringing in his ears. This will improve his life because he often missed school, or was unable to understand his teacher. He looks forward to doing well in school and playing with his friends again.
Davin’s mother said: “We were worried about Davin for so long, we thought he would never hear again, and it would be difficult for him as he grows up. We will tell our friends and family about this wonderful hospital. Thank you to the donors who donated and to the wonderful doctors and nurses.”
