Kunthea is a 35-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. He is married and has two daughters. He likes to play soccer, watch TV, and go fishing in his free time.
When he was 10 years old, Kunthea developed an ear infection in his left ear, and the infection spread to his right ear. He developed chronic otitis media when both of his eardrums perforated.
Kunthea has tried to use ear drops from a pharmacy, but his symptoms have not improved. He experiences ear discharge and hearing loss. It is difficult for him to work, and his wife is worried about him.
Kunthea learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Care (CSC), from a relative. He traveled with his wife to reach CSC and get treatment.
ENT surgeons at CSC will perform a myringoplasty procedure in his left ear on January 19. CSC is requesting $399 for the procedure that will repair Kunthea’s eardrum and improve his hearing.
