Piseth is a 10-year-old boy in 1st grade from Cambodia and he is an only child. Piseth enjoys playing football and watching TV. He traveled 2 hours with his mom to reach our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for treatment.
Piseth developed a left ear infection when he was 5 years old that has caused daily ear discharge, pain, and hearing loss. ENT doctors discovered a perforated tympanic membrane and tymapnic membrane retraction that has caused the formation of a cholesteatoma, an abnormal skin growth in the middle of the ear behind the eardrum.
ENT surgeons will perform a tympano-mastoidectomy, removing the infected area and abnormal growth, to repair the perforated eardrum and treat the cholesteatoma.
In Piseth’s own words “I am upset that I have ear pain and can’t communicate easily with people at school because of my hearing.” $809 funds a treatment that will restore Piseth’s proper hearing; let’s help him get back to normal.
