Keom Sieng is a five-year-old boy from Cambodia. He has one sister, and enjoys playing soccer with his friends.
One month ago, Keom Sieng developed a chalazion in his right eye, causing him obstructed vision and irritation. A chalazion is an inflamed cyst in a patient’s tear gland. He is unable to see clearly and experiences a loss of confidence.
Keom Sieng traveled for half an hour to seek treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre. On July 8, surgeons will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Keom Sieng’s symptoms should improve. He needs help raising $175 to fund this procedure.
His mother says, “I hope that after surgery, I will no longer have to worry about my son’s condition and he will look better.”
