Samich is a sixteen-year-old student. He has two brothers and one sister. His father is a construction worker and his mother farms rice. He is in grade nine at school and shared that his favorite courses are mathematics and literature. He told us he would like to become a doctor when he grows up.
Samich has recently developed nasal polyps in his sinuses. These obstructions make it difficult to breath, and put him at higher risk of chronic infections that cause high fever. Left untreated, Samich would experience persistent pain and irritation. He would miss school more often and his family would have to spend their limited income for medicine and treatment.
Fortunately, surgeons at Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) can perform a nasal polypectomy procedure, and remove the polyps. After the procedure, Samich will able to breath normally and will no longer be at risk of any infection in his nose.
Samich’s mother shared, “I hope that he can have this nose problem stopped quickly, so that he can breath easily, have no pain, and continue his studying for his dream of being a doctor.”
