About Edelawit

Edelawit is so cute that it hurts. She needs a surgery for her left hip. Her family realized that she was limping when she started walking. They took her to another hospital then were referred to CURE. Her father is retired, and the surgery Edelawit needs is not affordable for this family.

She will need what is called a hip open reduction where the doctor will go in and place the hip into the right spot. She also may need what is called a femoral shortening to shave down the bone in her leg so that both are even.

Edelawit is a happy little girl. She loves to play. Now it will just be easier for her to cut up and run around! We can't wait to see her back at CURE in June for her operation.
