Sinith is an 18-year-old 12th grade student from Cambodia. He has three brothers and one sister who are all in school. Sinith’s dad is a teacher. In his free time, he enjoys exercising, reading books, making study groups with his friends, listening to music, and spending time with his family.
In November 2019, Sinith was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture of his right femur and elbow. He underwent an open reduction internal fixation surgery at a local hospital to heal the fractures. There is a nail in his right femur and k-wire in his right elbow from these earlier surgeries. Now, the bones are healed and he does not have an infection. To prevent future complications like infection or pain, he must have the hardware removed.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On October 15th, Sinith will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. This procedure will remove the nail from his femur and hard wire from his elbow.
Sinith shared, “I hope my surgery goes well and I can return home soon once healed.”
