Hean is a 32-year-old construction worker from Cambodia. In his free time, he likes to play soccer and go for walks with his family and two children around the village.
In June 2019, Hean was in a motorcycle accident where he injured his left shoulder and wrist. He has been diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury on his left side. The brachial plexus is a nerve network that transmits signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Injuries to this nerve network can result in loss of function and sensation. He is unable to move his arm and often has pain and numbness.
Hean traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On October 09, he will undergo a brachial plexus repair surgery. After recovery, he will be able to use his arm and hand again. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $637 to fund this procedure.
Hean said, “I hope that my surgery will allow me to move my arm again without any pain.”
