Pang is a housewife from Cambodia. She is married and has one son. She likes to watch TV in her free time.
Four years ago, Pang had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left ear to perforate. For this reason, Pang experiences ear discharge, pain, and tinnitus. She cannot communicate clearly with others.
Pang traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On January 9, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her left ear. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $423 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
She says, “I hope my hearing improves and I don’t have any more ear pain.”
