Sokhorn is a 66-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has five sons, one daughter, and enjoys planting vegetables in her free time.
Ten years ago, Sokhorn developed nasal polyps, noncancerous growths in the lining of the nasal passage. For this reason she experiences headaches and congestion. She has difficulty breathing and smelling things.
When Sokhorn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for half an hour seeking treatment. On September 11, doctors will perform a nasal polypectomy to remove the polyps. After recovery, she will be able to breathe more easily. Now, she needs help to fund this $267 procedure.
“I hope that after my surgery, I will be able to smell again and will no longer have any headaches.”
