Vannary is a 15-year-old 9th grade student. Vannary’s father is a driver, her mother is a cleaner, and she has two twin younger sisters. At home, Vannary enjoys playing with her sisters, reading books, and helping out her mother.
Three months ago, Vannary developed an ear infection. This infection caused a cholesteatoma, or an abnormal skin growth, which led Vannary to experience hearing loss, tinnitus, and discharge.
In order for her condition to improve, Vannary needs a mastoidectomy procedure in her ear to remove the cholesteatoma and help her hear clearly again.
Vannary shared, “I hope my hearing can improve and the ear discharge finally will stop.”
