Munty is a 12-year-old sixth grader, who is the eldest of three siblings. His parents are rice farmers. Munty enjoys math at school, and would like to be a math teacher when he grows up. Munty likes swimming, playing football with his friends, and watching TV.
Last year he fractured his right forearm while playing with his friends after school. He had surgery, and hardware was placed in his arm at a local hospital to help repair the fracture. Munty’s arm has healed, and he is looking forward to having the metal removed from his arm so he can get back to his usual activities without pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On May 2nd Munty will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $304. After this procedure, Munty will be able to regain the strength in his arm and his risk of future infections will be limited.
“I hope that the metal in my arm will be removed. I want to heal quickly, so I can play with my friends again.”
