About Exodus

When she is just standing still, it is hard to tell that Exodus has any sort of disability, but as soon as she starts walking it is obvious that there is a problem. Her right foot is a clubfoot which has caused her knee a lot of pain, and because of that it is very difficult for her to walk or run without falling.

Exodus is a very energetic kindergartner. She loves to play with her friends, and thankfully she has not experienced any bullying because of her disability.

One of the sweetest things I learned about Exodus is that she has always wanted to grow up to be a doctor so that she can help other children with physical challenges. Her family brought her to CURE because someone they know had a successful surgery, and they knew this was their chance for hope. Her parents tell me that they are most excited for their daughter to be able to run without worrying about her getting hurt from falling down. We are excited about that, too!

  1. 11/01/2012Exodus's follow up appointment has been scheduled for 11/27/2012 - We expected to see Exodus back for her followup a few weeks ago, but she hasn't arrived at CURE for that yet so we are still waiting. We will project her next follow-up date even though it's not for certain
  2. 04/10/2012Exodus's follow up appointment has been scheduled for 10/09/2012 - Exodus came to CURE yesterday to be fitted for a special shoe. Unfortunately I was in surgery with another CUREkid and was not able to get a picture of her. Her next appointment is in 6 months. When she comes back, she should be walking perfectly normally with the help of her heightened shoe.
