Yoeun is an 82-year-old woman from Cambodia. She is married and has two sons, three daughters, and five grandchildren. In her free time, Yoeun enjoys listening to the monks pray at the pagoda.
About two years ago, Yoeun developed a pterygium, or a growth on the eye’s clear outer tissue, in each eye. This has caused her to experience blurred vision and irritation, and she currently has trouble confidently going anywhere by herself due to her difficulty seeing.
Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $201 to fund eye surgery for Yoeun. Surgeons will remove the pterygium from each eye on July 18, and, once the procedure is completed, Yoeun will hopefully be able to see clearly and comfortably again.
