Vann is a father to a 6-year-old daughter who is in second grade. Following his divorce a few years ago, he and his daughterlive together with his mother. In Vann’s free time, he feeds farm animals (mostly chickens and pigs), watches TV, and takes his daughter outside for walks.
Vann recently fractured his left femur and left tibia. He went to the government hospital and had an open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) with nails to stabilize the fracture. He stayed for three days in hospital then returned home. But, after one month he could still only walk a little bit and had a lot of pain. Now he traveled to Watsi’s Medical Partner CSC in need of care. Doctors there will do a bone graft on his left tibia and a tendon achilles lengthening cast for him so that he can walk again.
Vann is hopeful that after this treatment he will be able to walk easily and find a job to support his family.
