Srey Nich is a 5-year-old girl from Cambodia. She has two older sisters and two older brothers, and enjoys watching cartoons and playing with her dolls.
Five months ago, Srey Nich developed a chalazion in both eyes, causing her pain, swelling, tearing, and itchiness. A chalazion is an inflamed cyst in a patient’s tear gland. It is difficult for her to see clearly and causes discomfort.
Srey Nich traveled for three and a half hours to seek treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre. Surgeons will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Srey Nich’s symptoms should improve. She needs help raising $175 to fund this procedure.
“I hope that I will no longer have to worry about my daughter’s condition, and the cysts on her eyes will go away,” shared Srey Nich’s parents.
