Keo Mony is a 38-year-old soldier who is married with one son and four daughters. He likes to watch TV, read magazines, and go fishing in his free time.
Keo Mony has been diagnosed with bilateral hip avascular necrosis (AVN), which causes his bone tissue to break down. He experiences pain in both of his hips.
In December, Keo Mony traveled for two hours with his wife to reach our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). Surgeons successfully performed a total hip replacement on his right side. His right side feels better, but he still experiences pain on his left side. Therefore, surgeons at CSC will perform a total hip replacement on Keo Mony’s left side to relieve him of this pain. His surgery is scheduled for February 9.
Keo Mony’s family cannot afford to pay for this treatment, so CSC is requesting $781 in funding.
