Lorn is a 63-year-old farmer who is married and has one daughter. Lorn enjoys playing with her grandchildren and listening to the radio.
When she was much younger, Lorn had an ear infection. This infection caused the tympanic membrane, or the ear drum, in her left ear to perforate. Now Lorn experiences pain, tinnitus, and ear discharge. She cannot communicate clearly with others and suffers from chronic pain.
On May 17th, Lorn will undergo a myringoplasty procedure in her left ear. During this procedure, surgeons will close the perforation. Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is requesting $487 to fund this procedure. This covers medications, supplies, and inpatient care.
Lorn says, “I really hope my ear pain will stop and my hearing improves!”
