Vey is a 52-year-old musical instrument player from Cambodia. He likes listening to the radio and really enjoys looking after his vegetable garden.
Last October, Vey suffered from a motorcycle accident leaving his right arm and leg severely injured. He has been diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury on his right 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 regaining movement in his arm, but he is still unable to walk and carry on with his work.
Vey traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 18, he will undergo a brachial plexus repair surgery. This surgery will help him to regain movement in his leg, allowing for him to go back to work. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $637 to fund this procedure.
He says, “After surgery, I hope that I can go back to work and carry on without any pain.”
