Eth is a 47-year-old farmer from Cambodia. She and her husband, who have been married for 25 years, both farm rice to earn an income for their family. They have three sons, two daughters, and three grandchildren. She also enjoys watching TV, feeding the chickens, and taking care of her grandchildren.
In April 2018 Eth was in a motor accident that caused a severe fracture of her right femur. She had a nail put in her leg after the accident and her wound and the fracture have healed. Her leg has good function, now the pin needs to be removed. If the nail is left permanently, she could development an infection or lose mobility.
Eth travel six hours with her husband to reach the hospital. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On September 10, Eth will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. After the nail is removed she will not experience any pain and there will not be risk of future infection.
Eth said, “my family is worried about my right leg but they trust the surgeons here and told me come here for my treatment. I hope I will have good result and my leg will be normal and healthy.”
