Rith is a 9-month-old baby from Cambodia. He is the youngest child, with three older sisters. Rith’s mother stays home to look after the children, while his father works in construction. Rith’s mom shared that he is a playful baby who only likes sweet foods - and he is not a fan of rice!
About six months ago, Rith developed a mass on his forehead. The mass is swollen and causing his parents great concern. They traveled with Rith to our medical partner’s care center so he can receive treatment. On January 31st, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will remove the mass. CSC is requesting $273 to fund this procedure, and Rith’s family was able to contribute $75 to his care.
Rith’s mom said: “After surgery, I hope he looks better, and I don’t have to worry.”

Rith underwent mass removal surgery.
Rith and his mother traveled one and a half hours for diagnosis and treatment of the large lump on his forehead. Surgeons removed the bump which was fortunately a cyst and should not grow back. His mother was instructed on care of the incision and dressing and is grateful the scar will be minimal as it was done along his hairline. Rith’s parents no longer have to worry, and are grateful their son is healthy.
Rith’s parents said: “we are happy that our son had surgery at this hospital with a good surgeon. Now he will be good-looking and healthy like the other boys.”
