Phors is a 22-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. He has two older sisters and one older brother. In his free time, he likes to help feed the animals around the house and work on his family’s farm.
In September 2019, Phors fell off his motorcycle after a collision with another vehicle. He suffered injuries to his left arm but was unable to receive any initial treatment. He has been diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury on his left side. The brachial plexus is a nerve network that transmits signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Injuries to this nerve network can result in loss of function and sensation. He is unable to move his arm and cannot work.
Phors traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On January 10th, he will undergo a brachial plexus repair surgery. After recovery, will be able to use his arm again and can return to his work. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $696 to fund this procedure.
“I hope that my left hand will regain function again and I can return to my work easily like before,” he shared.
