Meet Pai Lin, a 14-year-old girl in the sixth grade. She is the youngest child in her family.
Pai Lin was a child when she developed an ear infection in both of her ears, causing both eardrums to rupture. She experiences ear discharge, hearing loss, and ringing in the ears. This makes it difficult for Pai Lin to hear and study.
Pai Lin recently sought treatment from doctors at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). On January 7, surgeons at CSC successfully performed a myringoplasty on her right ear to repair the perforated ear drum.
Surgeons will now perform another myringoplasty on Pai Lin’s left ear. CSC is asking for $423 to cover the costs of Pai Lin’s surgery. After this surgery, Pai Lin’s hearing is expected to improve.
