Rathanak is a ninth-grade student from Cambodia. He has two brothers, and enjoys playing football, reading books, and listening to music in his free time.
Seven years ago, Rathanak received a poorly administered injection in his left thigh. He is unable to bend his leg fully and often walks abnormally. His left leg is now shorter than his right leg, and because of this he also experiences back pain.
When Rathanak learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On November 19th, surgeons at CSC will perform a quadricepsplasty procedure of his left leg to help him walk again without any pain or difficutly. Now, Rathanak needs help to fund this $413 procedure.
“I hope that my son’s surgery goes well so he will no longer suffer from his condition and I won’t have to worry about him.” -Rathanak’s Mother
