About Alauca

Marita gave birth to her baby girl, Alauca, eleven days ago. She is a single mother and lives with her aunt who helps her take care of the baby. Marita's situation wasn't easy to begin with, and when her little girl was born with clubfeet it was even a bigger blow. Thankfully she was immediately referred to CURE where she was told that her baby could be treated, and now that Alauca is getting treatment at just eleven days of age, she will have an easy treatment that will most likely not require an operation. Although the treatment time is potentially lengthy, because of this early intervention Alauca is looking towards a future with strong and healthy feet, giving her a brand new start on a rough beginning. She will be able to grow up and run and play along with everyone else and not have to suffer with this easily correctable deformity.

Treatment Note

Alauca is suffering with clubfoot, but as an infant our doctors have determined that her condition can be treated through a less-expensive multi-stepped casting process called the Ponseti method. As a result, Alauca's care will be reflected in (instead of one surgery) a series of updates throughout the casting process.
