Kompheak is a 33-year-old father. He is married with three active boys ages six, five, and three years old. The oldest boy is in school, while the others stay home with their parents. He and his wife work as farmers and grow vegetables for a living.
Two years ago, Kompheak was in a motor vehicle crash where he injured his hip. He has tried physical therapy and takes pain medication when the pain is unbearable, but the pain persists and he has difficulty walking.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), is helping Kompheak to receive treatment. Surgeons at CSC will perform a hemiarthroplasty, where they will replace half of his hip joint. After recovery, he will be able to walk and work to support his family. Now, he needs help to fund this $539 procedure.
Kompheak shared that he hopes that he can walk without pain and return to farming soon as possible to support his family.
