Sophanha is a 25-year-old motor mechanic. He has been married for 2 years and they have a 6-month-old son. His wife is a factory worker, and they live with his parents. In his free time, he likes to exercise, play games, listen to music, and help his wife around the house.
Sophanha had an accident in 2019 which left him with a fracture on his left forearm and left tibia. After the accident, his family took him to a government hospital for treatment where surgeons inserted a plate, nail, and screws. He was hospitalized for 15 days. The fractures have healed but he still experiences pain in his left leg.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On January 14th, Sophanha will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. This procedure will remove all the hardware from his original surgery so that he no longer has pain and can have full movement again, while also minimizing the risk of infection..
Sophanha said, “I hope the hardware will be removed safely. I want to walk without pain anymore.”
