Mean is a 17-year-old laundromat employee with one older brother and two older sisters. His sisters are both married and his brother is a student. Mean’s father is a farmer and his mother sells traditional Khmer donuts at the market.
In October 2021, Mean was in a motor vehicle accident that caused a fracture of his right femur and tibia. He went to private clinic and doctors fixated hardware to heal his fracture. Now the bone is united and the hardware needs to be removed to prevent future complications.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On September 1st, Mean will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $304. This procedure will allow him to be fully healed from his accident.
Mean says, “I hope I will recover quickly from my surgery and can walk easily.”
