Rous is 68 years old with three daughters, three sons, and five grandchildren. He lives with his wife and youngest son, who has a small business cleaning cars. At home, he likes to listen to the news on the radio and help his son with detailing and waxing cars.
Three years ago, Rous developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision. This can make it difficult to see any small details clearly. He is no longer farming and not able to help his son with his work.
When Rous learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled their hoping for treatment. On November 22nd, doctors will perform small incision cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. He needs help to fund this $253 procedure.
Rous said: “I hope my eyesight will improve so I can help my son with his business, and help my wife with housework.”
