Boramei received treatment to help her walk without pain.

“Boramei has no pain and will soon return to school,” her doctor at Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) reports. “Boramei says she is most excited to go home and see her family and play with her friends. Her parents say she will go back to school as soon as possible after getting her home.”

Twelve-year-old Boramei lives with her parents, brother, and sister in Cambodia. She likes playing soccer with her friends at school, and her favorite food is pork fried rice.

Boramei came to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), with a stiff right knee. “Boramei received injections into her right leg when she was three months old in an attempt to battle Dengue fever,” explains CSC. “It has been difficult for her to walk since she was a year old. She wants to play with her friends normally, but sometimes she can’t participate.”

Treatment for Boramei is quadriceplasty, a surgical technique in which doctors release adhesions and contractures in the thigh muscles (quadriceps) to make it easier to bend the knee. CSC tells us, after surgery, “Boramei will have more fluidity in her knee and be able to walk better.”

$378 in funding pays for surgery for Boramei as well as two weeks of hospital care, five days of post-operative care (including physiotherapy), and four follow-up appointments during the first year after surgery.

Boramei looks forward to walking with less difficulty and playing more sports with her friends. Let’s help make that happen for her!
