Ruos is a 30-year-old security guard who is married with one son and one daughter. His son is 12 years old and in ninth grade, while his daughter is nine years old and in fourth grade. In his free time, Ruos likes to play volleyball.
In August 2017, Ruos fractured his left leg in a motor vehicle accident. After the accident, Ruos visited a provincial hospital where his leg was casted for three months. Afterwards, he went to a traditional Khmer healer where he received a bamboo splint for another two weeks, but his fracture did not heal. In February 2018, he had a fracture repair procedure where a surgeon affixed hardware to help heal the fracture. The fracture is now healed, but the locking nail in his left tibia is infected and needs to be removed.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On October 28th, Ruos will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $230. This procedure will help him walk easily again and heal his infection.
Rous shared, “I hope my left leg is finally healed and will not become infected again and I can return to work soon after I recover.”
