Srey Nuon is a 36-year-old teacher from Cambodia. She has one son, and enjoys doing the housework and playing with her son in her free time.
When she was eight years old, Srey Nuon had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left ear to perforate. For this reason, Srey Nuon experiences discharge, hearing loss, tinnitus, itchiness, and headaches. She is unable to hear properly and has a difficult time communicating with others.
Srey Nuon traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On April 23, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her left ear. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $423 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
She says, “I hope that after my surgery, I will no longer have an ear infection and the ear discharge will stop and my hearing will improve.”
