Saony is a rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two daugthers. She likes spending time with her family.
When she was five years old, Saony had an ear infection. This infection caused a cholesteatoma, or an abnormal skin growth, to develop in the middle ear behind the ear drum. For this reason, Saony experiences ear discharge and discomfort. It is difficult for her to hear, and she has discomfort from the ear discharge.
Saony traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 12, she will undergo a mastoidectomy procedure in her left ear. During this procedure, ENT surgeons will remove the cholesteatoma. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $842 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
She says, “I am looking forward to going home and spending time with my family.”
