Sean is an elderly mother of four with one son, three daughters, and now four grandchildren. Sean lives with her oldest daughter who works in a garment factory. She used to work as a rice farmer, but now stays home with her family and enjoys listening to the news on TV.
Ten years ago, Sean developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her pain, photophobia, and partial blindness. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Sean learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled there with her daughter seeking treatment. On May 31st, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Sean shared, “I hope I can see well again so I can see the faces of my family and take care of my grandchildren at home. I would also like to travel to ceremonies at far away pagodas.”
