Chy Vorn is a three-year-old girl from Cambodia. She has one older brother, and she likes to play with her toys and go for walks with her family.
When she was two years old, she received an injection in her thigh that was poorly administered, resulting in the contracture of her knee. She is unable to fully extend her knee.
When Chy Vorn learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for five hours seeking treatment. On April 29, surgeons at CSC will perform a quadricepsplasty procedure of her right leg to help her walk and bend her knee normally. Now, Chy Vorn needs help to fund this $413 procedure.
Her mother says, “I hope that my daughter’s surgery goes well so I don’t have to worry about her condition and she will be able to walk like normal.”
