Mengleang is a fifth-grader from Cambodia. He has two older sisters and an older brother, and he enjoys playing soccer with his friends after class.
Two years ago, Mengleang developed nasal polyps, noncancerous growths in the lining of the nasal passage. For this reason he experiences nasal obstruction, infections, and bleeding. He often has difficulty breathing and sleeping.
When Mengleang learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On February 24th, doctors will perform a nasal polypectomy to remove the polyps. After recovery, he will be able to breathe more easily. Now, he needs help to fund this $291 procedure.
“I hope that my son will be able to breathe without any difficulty again and I won’t have to worry about his condition affecting him anymore.” -Mengleang’s Mother
