Sokea is a twelve-year-old girl from Cambodia. She was born with a congenital deformation of her left foot. She is unable to properly extend and move her foot or walk normally.
Surgery will help to lengthen the Achilles tendon, allowing for further range of motion and congruent length of both her legs. She will also be able to walk and move her leg and foot without any difficulty. Surgery is scheduled for July 9 and will cost $497.
Sokea is the youngest of five children, and she hopes to become a doctor when she gets older.
