Aisas is a 51-year-old baker from Cambodia. She has five children, and four grandchildren. Her husband is a farmer and livestock seller. Aisas makes Khmer cake to sell locally. In her free time, she takes care of her grandchildren, cooks for her family, and helps to look after the cows.
Two years ago, Aisas started to develop a mass on her left leg. She visited a local hospital and was diagnosed with plexiform neurofibroma, a kind of tumor. It is benign but recently Aisas has started to feel pain in her leg while walking, and she is uncomfortable with the appearance of the mass.
Aisas traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On June 9th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will remove the mass. Now, Aisas needs help to raise $231 to fund this procedure.
Aisas said, “I hope that this mass is gone forever once the surgery is successful, and that I have no more pain when I am walking.”
