Ravy is a 35-year-old tailor from Cambodia. She has three older sisters and an older brother, and she enjoys listening to music and watching movies.
When she was twenty-two years old, Ravy had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her right ear to perforate. For this reason, Ravy experiences ear discharge, itchiness, and hearing loss. She cannot communicate well with her family and friends, and her family is worried about her hearing loss.
Ravy traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On March 10th, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her right ear. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $464 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
“After surgery, I hope that the ear discharge will stop, and the tinnitus with go away so my hearing will improve,” she shared.
