Your donation gave hope to a young mother

Thank you for supporting our Fund life-saving healthcare in Cambodia! Your donation is helping a young mother to fight with breast cancer and endocrine disorder.

Sok Rin, aged 35, who was admitted to our hospital ward. She is a breast cancer survivor and recently diagnosed with an endocrine disorder.

As a breast cancer survivor, Sok Rin knows how it important it is to look after her health. Last September, Sok Rin began experiencing abdominal pain which grew worse by the day. Fearing her cancer had returned, she visited a clinic near her home and received a blood test. The bloodwork found that while her cancer was still in remission, she was now struggling with an endocrine disorder. She stayed in the clinic for three days but doctors were unable to understand or treat her disorder. She went home and for the next two months tried to fight through the pain as she couldn’t afford to visit a specialist.

After two months of worsening pain, Sok Rin went to a public hospital and received further diagnostics. The result showed that she had the cyst on a major vein. By this time, she had already spent around 1,000 US dollars on treatment – four times her annual income. With no savings left for surgery, Sok Rin returned home and turned to traditional medicine. While drinking herbal medicinal tea one day, Sok Rin’s neighbor told her about Sihanouk Hospital Center of HOPE (SHCH). Sok Rin listened as her neighbor spoke about the free and affordable services that SHCH provides to people just like her.

The very next day, Sok Rin traveled into Phnom Penh to visit the specialists at SHCH. She received her surgery and is now pain-free. Sok Rin beamed a smile at the staff on the day of discharge.

“I am thankful to all the staff and doctors at SHCH who took care me every day and night I was here,” she shared. “They are patient and friendly. Without them, what would have happened to me? And what would have happened to my little daughter and husband?”

Sok Rin was discharged with strict instructions to return one a month for follow-up until she is completely recovered and her endocrine disorder is well-managed. In the meantime, she is eager to return home to her family, and to return to work to support them.

 

This is remarkably, why our work is so important, and why we must continue to fund this life-saving health service.

Your donations have gone to providing the free, quality treatment for a patient like Sok Rin.

We are deeply grateful for your contribution and we look forward to keeping you up to date with our successes.
 

Appreciated your support.
