Soben is a 29-year-old construction worker. He has six siblings and currently lives at home with two of his siblings to help care for his elderly parents.
In December, Soben was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture of his left tibia. Doctors at a local hospital used hardware to repair the fracture; however, this hardware eventually became displaced and led to an infection. Soben could not get the treatment he needed at the local hospital and experienced major tissue loss and pain around the fracture area, and is now unable to walk.
Soben recently visited our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for treatment. On November 23rd, doctors will perform an amputation of his lower left leg. Following his procedure, Soben will undergo physical therapy and receive a prosthetic leg, allowing him to walk easily again. CSC is requesting $446 to fund Soben’s procedure.
Soben shared, “I am relieved that the doctors can help stop this pain and help me walk again.”
