Chanthy is a 43-year-old construction worker. He shared that his wife passed away two years ago and he is raising their two sons, an 18-year-old and a 12-year-old. In his free time, Chanthy likes to go fishing, play football, and watch boxing on TV.
In August 2021, Chanthy was in a motorbike accident and fractured his left tibia. Chanthy had surgery at a local hospital where an external fixation device was applied. Two months later, the device was replaced with an orthopedic nail that has since caused Chanthy pain, redness, swelling and infection. It is still difficult for Chanthy to walk even with crutches.
On April 20th, Chanthy will undergo a fracture hardware removal procedure, and our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is helping Chanthy raise $304 to cover the cost of his care. This procedure will help Chanthy walk again, and return to work to support his sons.
Chanthy shared, “I hope after surgery, my leg will be fixed, and I won’t have any more pain or infection. I need to work so my sons can continue in school and I can support them.”
