Rachana is a 18 year-old freshman in the university. She is from Phnom Penh, where she currently attends college, and works a few days a week in a coffee shop. Rachana is the first in her family to attend college. Her parents are clothing factory workers, and her younger brother is still in high school. In her free time, she likes learning new recipes from social media.
Around four years ago, she started to notice hard mass in her right arm. Since then, it has grown in size. She has been diagnosed with a benign bone tumor, called an Osteochondroma. She experience pain, swelling, and difficulty using her arm and hand.
Rachana traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On September 11th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will remove the mass. Now, Rachana needs help to raise $273 to fund this procedure.
After surgery Rachana hopes that she can continue to attend school and work without any more pain or worry that her condition will worsen.
