Vireakneat is a four-year-old boy from Cambodia. He likes to play toys with his friends, watch television, and go for walks with his family.
He received a poorly administered injection in his upper leg, causing a flexion contracture of his left thigh. He is unable to full extend his leg and experiences difficulty walking.
When Vireakneat learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On July 15, surgeons at CSC will perform a quadricepsplasty procedure of his left leg to help him walk without difficulty. Now, Vireakneat needs help to fund this $413 procedure.
His mother says, “I hope that after surgery, I will no longer have to worry about my son and he will be able to walk and run normally.”
