Navy is a 43-year-old tailor from Cambodia. She has four children, and enjoys cooking and watching television in her spare time.
When she was nine years old, Navy had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her right ear to perforate. For this reason, Navy experiences ear discharge, tinnitus, headaches, hearing loss, and itchiness. She has a difficult time hearing others and cannot communicate well.
Navy traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On September 03, she will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her right ear. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $423 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
“I hope that after my operation, the infection will heal and I will no longer have any tinnitus ear discharge and my hearing will improve.”
