Toy is a 63-year-old mother of seven. She has two daughters, five sons, and many grandchildren. Toy lives with her husband and they both work as rice farmers. In her free time, she enjoys listeing the news and Khmer dramas on TV.
Four years ago, Toy developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her photophobia, blurry vision, and tearing.
When Toy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled with her husband seeking treatment so she can see again. On May 28th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will finally be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Toy shared, “I hope after surgery I can see well so I can plant in the rice field and go anywhere on my own.”
