Thavin is a fifth-grader from Cambodia. He has two younger siblings, a sister and brother, and he enjoys playing games and watching cartoons.
One year ago, Thavin developed nasal polyps, noncancerous growths in the lining of the nasal passage. For this reason he experiences nasal congestion, a runny nose, post nasal drip, and headaches. He has a difficult time breathing and sleeping normally.
Thavin’s family learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, and on December 24th, doctors will perform a nasal polypectomy to remove the polyps. After recovery, he will be able to breathe more easily. Now, he needs help to fund this $267 procedure.
“I hope that surgery goes well and removes the obstruction from my son’s nose so I will no longer have to worry about it causing him any problems,” shared Thavin’s mother.
