Phea Rum is a 21-year-old from Cambodia who works as a house guard. In his spare time, he enjoys listening to music and playing football.
He was in a motorcycle accident on May 6 that resulted in a fractured clavicle, or collarbone. He immediately received surgical care, and hardware was placed to help in healing. This hardware is now causing him pain and discomfort. Surgery to remove the hardware is crucial to ensure further complications, such as infections, don’t occur. The procedure is scheduled for May 16.
Phea was told about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, by a neighbor who received care from them previously. He traveled three hours from home to the care facility with hopes of receiving help. The $149 amount needed for the surgery covers medical, hospital, and surgeon/physician fees.
This treatment will alleviate his pain in the previously-fractured area and is also a preventative measure for future medical problems.
