Suon is a 48-year-old mother from Cambodia. She has one daughter, and enjoys cooking Khmer desserts and taking care of the housework in her free time.
When she was seventeen years old, Suon had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left ear to perforate. For this reason, Suon experiences ear discharge, tinnitus, and hearing loss. She has a difficult time communicating with others, and consistently suffers from a chronic ear infection.
Suon traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On July 1, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her left ear. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $423 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
