SreyRam Kuy was barely two years old when she was injured during a bombing that took place as her family fled Cambodia during the horrific genocide carried out by the Khmer Rouge regime. Luckily a volunteer Red Cross surgeon was able to save her life, and SreyRam made it safely to the United States with her family. Inspired by this experience, SreyRam pursued a career in medicine and eventually became the first female Cambodian refugee to work as a surgeon in the U.S. Today, whenever possible, SreyRam provides free surgery to low-income patients, treating everything from breast cancer to inflamed gall bladders without charging a dime. Her compassion for victims of combat led her to partner with Dog Tag Bakery, an organization that creates handmade baked goods while providing valuable work experience for disabled veterans and caregivers.
