Rathana is a 19-year-old taxi driver from Cambodia. He lives with his parents and three younger siblings. His parents are farmers. He usually helps his parents with the farm work, but since he was injured he cannot do that right now. Normally, he enjoys playing soccer with his friends and going out to restaurants.
In February, he was in motor accident that caused a fracture in his right femur. His parents took him to a traditional Khmer healer but his bone did not heal properly and he is now unable to walk without severe pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On July 8th, Rathana will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. This procedure will repair his fracture through the fixation of a nail, allowing him to heal effectively and walk again.
Rathana said, “I hope this surgery fixes my fracture quickly so I can work again and help support my parents well.”
