Ramy is a girl from Cambodia. She likes studying the Khmer language and reading. She wants to be a teacher when she grows up. She has one brother and three sisters. She loves eating vegetables and fish.
Three years ago, she had an operation to treat the haematogenous osteomyelitis in her right femur. She had a cast for one month post-operation. This month, she went to a hospital in Battambang after experiencing chronic pain in her leg for the past year. They referred her to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre. She has severe leg length discrepancy and requires an osteotomy procedure to treat the femoral defect.
Surgery is scheduled for June 7 and will cost $390.
Her mother says, “I hope my daughter’s surgery is successful and she can walk without pain and return to school.”
