Theary is a seven-year-old first grader. She has one older sister, her mother is a farmer, and her father works in factory. Her favorite subjects in school are Khmer and math.
Since three months ago, Theary has been experiencing difficulty breathing and sleeping at night, causing her to miss school. Theary recently received a diagnosis of enlarged tonsils and adenoids, which, if not treated, will allow symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.
Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $241 to fund a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy for Theary, which will take place on June 23rd. Surgeons will remove her tonsils and adenoids to relieve Theary of her discomfort.
Theary’s mother wishes for her daughter to live more comfortably, “I hope my daughter can get well so she can breathe easily and go back to school with her friends.”
