Chat Toll is a 42 year old woman who suffers from a vaginal discharge tinged with blood.

She went a doctor who told her she had lumps in her uterus and she needed an operation

but she had no money for such things and so didn’t go. She is a widow and has a fear

for death which she believes is near.

She used a Cambodian saying to explain her great fear –“I will die but with my eyes open”.

This expresses her fear for her children who will be orphaned with no one to care for them

and her soul will not rest as she must watch her children from the other side.
