Yun is a mother of three from Cambodia. She is 33 years old and has three daughters, and enjoys cooking food and watching romantic movies on television.
When she was nine years old, Yun had an ear infection. This infection caused a cholesteatoma, or an abnormal skin growth, to develop in the middle ear behind the ear drum. For this reason, Yun experiences ear drainage, hearing loss, and itchiness. She is unable to hear clearly and struggles to find work.
Yun traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On September 2nd, she will undergo a mastoidectomy procedure in her right ear. During this procedure, ENT surgeons will remove the cholesteatoma. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $842 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
