Sok Na is a third-grader from Cambodia. She is nine years old and lives in Kampong Cham with her grandmother. Her mom and dad live about two hours away in order to be near their factory jobs. Sok Na loves reading, and she dreams of being an English teacher! She also loves playing with her neighbors and being outside in her free time.
Four years ago, Sok Na developed a small mass on her ear. Since then, the mass has grown larger and is sometimes itchy. She also worries her classmates are looking at it when she is at school. Sok Na traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On May 2nd, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will remove the mass. CSC is requesting $273 to fund this procedure. Sok Na’s family contributed $100 to her care.
Her grandmother said: “I hope she can feel comfortable and go back to school soon.”
