“I need to get a wheelchair.” This was Mildred’s response to our asking what the doctor said. It made our hearts sink. We’ve met her at clinic before. The first time, she didn’t have feeling in her lower legs. When we saw her this time, some of the feeling had returned. Unfortunately, her troubles are nerve related and there isn’t much that CURE can do to help.
