Chan Se is a 17-year-old 9th grade student. Chan Se has one younger brother, and his parents are farmers. At home, Chan Se enjoys reading and playing football.
Five years ago, Chan Se began experiencing difficulty swallowing and breathing. He often experiences a sore throat and difficulty eating and drinking. Chan Se was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils and adenoids, which, if not treated, will cause his symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.
Our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, is fundraising $265 to cover the cost of tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy for Chan Se, which is scheduled to take place on September 5th. Surgeons will remove his tonsils and adenoids, hopefully relieving Chan Se of his symptoms and helping him live much more comfortably.
Chan Se shared, “I hope my pain stops and I can breathe easily.”
