Reaksmey is a 17-year-old security guard. He has three brothers and a sister. In his free time, Reaksmey likes to play football, chat with friends, and hang out.
When he was ten years old, Reaksmey developed an ear infection in his right ear that perforated his eardrum, or tympanic membrane. He sought treatment at a hospital, but his symptoms did not improve. Reaksmey experiences ear discharge, hearing loss, and tinnitus (ringing or buzzing in the ear).
On February 15, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a myringoplasty surgery on his right ear to fix the perforated eardrum, stopping the discharge and pain he experiences. Over time, Reaksmey’s hearing can improve.
CSC is requesting $423 to fund the cost of surgery and hospital stay.
