Horm is married and has two sons, two daughters, and six grandchildren. Horm and his wife are both cleaners and in his free time Horm enjoys doing housework, listening to the radio, reading books, and taking care of his grandchildren.
Horm was in an accident as a child that damaged his right leg. He underwent an amputation over 45 years ago to remove the damaged parts of his leg. In 1993, he received a prosthesis which he has used to ambulate, but in the last five months he has been feeling pain at the amputation site. It is painful for him to wear his prosthetic and he has tissue sclerosis. Currently, he is walking with crutches because of his pain.
Surgeons at Watsi’s Medical Partner Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) will perform a corrective surgery to treat the damaged tissue at the amputation site and allow him to walk with a prosthetic again. Now his family needs to raise $352 to fund the surgery and are requesting support.
Horm shared, “I hope after the surgery I have no more pain and can wear a prosthesis and work easily again.”
