Salong is a 23-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has one older brother, and enjoys listening to music and reading books in his spare time.
Two years ago, Salong was treated for a facial tumor, which was then surgically removed. He was then fitted with internal hardware to support healing of the tissue around his right orbital socket. Now, he experiences mild pain and blurry vision due to the hardware.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On November 28, Salong will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $214. Surgery will remove the hardware and will allow him to see clearly and breathe easily again.
“I hope that I will no longer have any pain and I will be able to see clearly again,” said Salong.
