Meet Pisey, a 35-year-old woman who is happily married and has a son currently studying in the sixth grade. Both she and her husband are dedicated construction workers, spending long hours working under the sun. Apart from her work, Pisey finds joy in preparing delicious meals for her beloved family at home.
For several years, Pisey has had nasal congestion; this has resulted in chronic headaches, pain, fatigue, and frequent infections. She visited the local provincial hospital, where she was given medication, but it has not improved. Her family is financially burdened when she cannot work due to her illness, and she is not paid when she does not work.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help. Surgeons have diagnosed Pisey with a deviated septum that is blocking her nose and affecting airflow. A deviated septum occurs when the septum bends enough in one direction to become crooked. This can make breathing difficult. On July 18th, surgeons at CSC will perform a septoplasty to relieve her pain and help her live and work comfortably again. Now, she needs your help raising $333 to fund this treatment. The cost will cover hospitalization, medications, supplies, and post-operative care.
Pisey said:”I hope to breathe better and sleep well after surgery. I want to care for my son and work so he will stay in school.”
