Sarol is a 15-year-old eighth grade student from Cambodia. He lives with his parents and his six-year-old brother. His father works in construction, and his mother works in the home, caring for their children. Sarol enjoys taking chemistry classes at school and helping his younger brother with his homework. He would like to be a teacher when he grows up. His favorite food is his mother's fried chicken. Sarol was born with Parry-Romberg syndrome, also known as progressive facial hemiatrophy. This is a rare condition that causes the tissues beneath the skin on one side of the face to gradually break down. It can also affect the muscles, cartilage, and bones of the face. The cause of Parry-Romberg syndrome is unknown, but if gone untreated, the progression of the disease can cause facial disfigurement and speech defects, with significant damage to the eyes, teeth, and nose. Due to his symptoms, Sarol has trouble breathing through his nose. The facial disfigurement caused by the syndrome has left him feeling self-conscious about his appearance, which is particularly challenging for a 15-year-old. When Sarol's family learned about our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre, they traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On June 11th, surgeons at CSC will perform a skin graft procedure to help stop the progression of the disease with lipo-filler, followed by a skin graft to stop the advancement of speech or chewing defects. This will also help his self-esteem and confidence. Sarol's family is able to contribute $100 towards the cost of his treatment, and need help to raise $387 more to fund the procedure. Sarol's mother says, "I hope the doctors can treat Sarol's facial condition, so he can regain his health and appearance."
