Chamnan is a teenager from Cambodia. He just finished high school. He enjoyed studying mathematics and wants to be a chef. He enjoys eating fried vegetables with pork and listening to classical music.
When he was six years old, he received poorly administered injections in his thighs. He has difficulty walking and is stiff in both of his hips. He has had an abnormal gait for the past nine years.
Chamnan needs to undergo a nerve and tendon procedure to release his contracture and allow him to walk freely again. Surgery is scheduled for September 4 and will cost $497.
He says, “I hope this will be gone after surgery.”
