Sok is a 40-year-old father of three from Cambodia. He and his wife are rice farmers on their ancestral land and have three children: a 16-year-old daughter, an 11-year-old son, and a 2-year-old daughter. When not working outside in the fields, Sok likes to play football with his neighbors and son. Sok has had a painful mass on his left knee for at least ten years. It has grown larger, making it impossible for him to walk without pain. Sok also experiences difficulty working outside, riding a motorbike, or helping his wife around the house. He received an x-ray at his local clinic and was diagnosed with a uric acid mass from advanced gout, also known as gouty tophus. A tophus can occur when the patient has gout and uric acid builds up around the joints, which is often painful. It is also possible for the mass to press on a nerve, which can be both painful and potentially dangerous. Larger masses need to be removed so they don't cause long-term damage to the joint. The local clinic team recommended Sok undergo surgery to remove the mass, but Sok was unable to afford the procedure. Fortunately, a neighbor told him about our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre (CSC), and Sok traveled to CSC's care center to receive treatment. On October 3rd, surgeons will remove the mass. CSC is requesting $273 to fund this procedure. Sok contributed $100 to his care. Sok said: "After surgery, I hope I will be able to walk more easily and without pain, swelling, and infection."
