Kem Ly is a 71-year-old retired bread baker. He has one son, one daughter, and three grandchildren. Kem Ly lives with his son who is a musician. He likes to listen to the news on the radio.
One year ago, Kem Ly developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him photophobia and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so is not able to go places on his own.
When Kem Ly learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled there hoping for treatment. On March 15th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Kem Ly is hopeful that after surgery, he can do more on his own and travel around outside by himself.
