Muoysean is an 18-year-old food seller from Cambodia. She likes to cook and help around the house in her free time.
Since she was three years old, Muoysean had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her right ear to perforate. For this reason, Muoysean experiences discharge, tinnitus, and hearing loss. She has recurrent infections which cause irritation and poor hearing.
Muoysean traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On March 4, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her right ear. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $423 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
She says, “I hope that after my surgery, my ear will be able to heal and I will regain my hearing.”
