Sithoeun is a 43-year-old mother of two from Cambodia. Her husband works in construction, and she sells fruit from a cart on the back of her motorbike. At home, she enjoys watching TV in her free time.
Three years ago, she noticed a mass growing on her nose. Over time it has gotten bigger, and she has even tried using whitening skin cream from her local market to make it go away. She has been diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma, a common type of skin cancer, which needs removal surgically. She is concerned that the mass will grow bigger and lead to cancer.
Sithoeun traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 6th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, will remove the mass. Sithoeun needs help to raise $273 to fund this procedure.
After surgery, she hopes we will remove the wound on her nose and look better.
