Phorn is a 31-year-old construction worker. He’s married and the proud father of a 10-year-old daughter in fifth grade. His wife works in a clothes factory. In his free time, he likes to fish or play volleyball.
In August 2019, Phorn was accidentally cut by a knife. His hand was lacerated and his right metacarpal was fractured. After the accident, he went to a government hospital where hardware was inserted allowing the fracture to heal. Although the bone has healed, he experiences stiffness in his finger and the scar on his right hand is healing poorly.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On September 16th, Phorn will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. During the procedure, surgeons will remove the hardware from his finger, allowing him to begin physical therapy and full use of his hand as he finally heals.
Phorn shared that he is hopeful that he’ll be able to hold objects in his hand again.
