Tina is a 31-year-old food seller who is married and has two young sons. Her sons are two years old and eight months old.
For the past year, Tina has been experiencing a sore throat and difficulty swallowing. Frequent illness interrupts her work and makes her upset and feel down. She was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils and adenoids, which, if not treated, will cause her symptoms to persist and worsen over time.
Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), is helping Tina to receive treatment. On September 7th, surgeons will remove her tonsils and adenoids, hopefully relieving Tina of her symptoms and helping her live much more comfortably. Now, CSC is requesting $241 to fund Tina’s procedure and care.
Tina shared, “I hope my throat pain will go away and I can feel much better after surgery.”
