Moeun is a 70-year-old housewife from Cambodia with five sons and two daughters. She likes to stay at home, look after her grandchildren, and cook for her family.
In 2011, Moeun fell, resulting in a fracture in her right femur. In 2012, she first came to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), to receive an open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) procedure to heal her fracture. She traveled four hours with her daughter to reach CSC for treatment. Later that year, she returned to remove the hardware from the procedure. However, a few days later, she fractured her femur once again, and surgeons performed another ORIF procedure and bone graft to heal her injury.
Moeun recently returned to CSC because it is difficult for her to walk, and she is in pain. Surgeons at CSC will remove the hardware from her second ORIF procedure to allow Moeun to feel comfortable again. The surgery is scheduled for January 17, and our medical partner is requesting $411 to fund the treatment.
