Sarorn is a 45-year-old farmer who is married and her husband also works as a farmer. Together, they have two daughters. In her free time, Sarorn enjoys watching TV at home.
Three months ago, Sarorn developed an ear infection that caused the tympanic membrane, or eardrum, in her right ear to perforate. As a result, Sarorn experiences pain, itchiness, ear discharge, and a ringing in her ears known as tinnitus. These symptoms make it difficult for her to communicate well with others.
As medication from the pharmacy has not helped, Sarorn traveled to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), hoping to receive treatment. On November 4th, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure, in which surgeons will close the perforation in her right ear. CSC is requesting $464 to fund this procedure, which includes all medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Sarorn shared, “I really hope my ear pain will stop and my hearing can improve.”
