Bory is a 40-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She is married with one son, two daughters, and one grandchild. She lives with her farmer husband and her children. At home, she likes to read the news on her phone and cook for her family.
Three months ago, Bory developed a chalazion in both eyes, causing her burning, itchiness,and irritation. A chalazion is an inflamed cyst in a patient’s tear gland. She does not see clearly and it is difficult for her to do household tasks.
Bory traveled for two and a half hours to seek treatment from our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre. On October 5th, surgeons will remove the cyst through a chalazion excision procedure. After recovery, Bory’s symptoms should improve. She needs help raising $210 to fund this procedure.
Bory says, “I hope after surgery the cysts from my eye will be gone, and I won’t be itchy. I want to go outside again and be able to help my family.”
