Yen is a 60-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She is married with two sons and four grandchildren. During her free time, she enjoys keeping up with the news and being with family.
Five years ago, Yen developed a pterygium, a pink tissue growth, in each eye. This causes her blurred vision, irritation, and tearing. Yen has difficulty seeing things clearly and going places on her own.
Yen and her son traveled for four hours to reach our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for treatment. Yen is scheduled to undergo eye surgery to remove the pterygium from both of her eyes on July 18. CSC is requesting $201 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care.
After the procedure, Yen will be able to see clearly again and return to her favorite activities.
