Pary is a 30-year-old food seller. She has seven siblings, who are all married, and lives at home with her parents. Her mother works as a food seller as well, while her father works as a farmer. Pary’s favorite hobbies are reading books, searching to learn new things on Google, and being active and getting exercise.
Since she was young, Pary has had a mass on her lower right jaw. She had a biopsy, underwent surgery at a local hospital, and saw a specialist surgeon. However, she still feels unwell and experiences discomfort and low self-esteem as a result of the condition.
When Pary learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled there seeking treatment. On December 1st, she will undergo a mandible reconstruction to remove the mass on her lower jaw. CSC is requesting $657 to fund Pary’s procedure.
Pary shared that she hopes her right mandible will get better and her self-esteem will improve as a result of her surgery.

Pary underwent reconstructive surgery for her lower jaw.
Pary’s surgery was a success! After years of difficulty with her lower jaw, surgeons were able to remove the mass and perform a skin graft. Pary’s medical team shared that recovery will take time and there may be a need for further procedures to fully heal her jawbone; however, as a result of Pary’s recent surgery, she experiences alleviation of her health concerns and is able to open her mouth to eat and talk. Pary shared that she hopes to find greater community amongst her peers and perhaps marry one day and start a family.
Pary said, “I am grateful for the chance to have a normal face again and look like other women. People stare at me, and I am shy. When my surgeries are done, I will go back to work and hope to support my own living. Thank you to the surgeons and the everyone who cared enough to donate time and money for my surgery.”
