Mai is a grandmother from Cambodia. She has one grandson and enjoys spending time with her family.
Ten years ago, Mai developed a cataract in each eye, causing her watery eyes, vision loss, cloudy lens, sensitivity to light, and itchiness. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Mai learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for one hour seeking treatment. On December 6, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
Her son says, “I hope my mother can see again so I don’t worry about her vision loss anymore.”
