This was the scene today during Quinter’s great report. “Wow, very good,” Dr. Theuri said after looking at her X-ray. The bones have healed well. She’ll have her pins removed today and go home without a cast! She can walk using crutches and will come back in July for another review. We thank God that Quinter and her Mom both left smiling today!

“I don't know what to say, I am just happy that Frank is now healed and, by the way, there is nothing that he doesn't know, he is too smart!” said Emmanuel, Frank's father. Frank talks a lot and he is in good shape, in fact, his father is planning to enroll him into school soon! We are thankful to God for the good things happening to Frank.

Charity from KenyaMay 12, 2016

Charity showed up today at clinic, jovial as always. She is doing great and her back is looking good with no new complications. Last time the doctor had recommended a walker to help her walk and today her mother told us that she got one for her and she is making some good progress. Charity's health is not the only thing that is improving. “She has been doing very well in school. She has been number one in class constantly,” her mother told us. We thank God for all these good reports! We look forward to seeing her again next year June. We hope and pray that she will continue with the good progress!

Sirgut came back for follow-up sooner than expected, but everything is going well and she is still doing her exercises! Here she is resting her leg because the frame can get heavy for her sometimes. Keep up the great work Sirgut!

Abel is doing great! His cast was removed today and he will get a supporting shoe/foot brace to help him walk better. We will see him in three months to checkup on his progress! Keep praying!

Christopher from KenyaApr 21, 2016

First thing in the morning, we saw Christopher trying to find snacks in his dad’s pocket. As soon as he saw the camera though, he paused and posed. He is such a beautiful boy! After review, the doctor noticed that although Christopher is comfortably able to move his neck, his natural tendency is to tilt it. She sent them to see the physiotherapist again, so Christopher’s dad might get more training on home exercises. He is always quick to listen and faithful to help his son. We are so grateful for the progress Christopher has made so far, and plan to see how they’re doing at our next Embu clinic, June 16th.

Micheal from UgandaApr 11, 2016

Micheal was brought for review by his grandmother Bena because his mother went to work out of town. Micheal now lives with Bena and she is supportive and caring. Micheal has grown big and hasn’t had any major health issue and we hope things stay that way! We will see them back for review in August of this year!

“Myres is now a big boy, and he loves to play almost all games and he also loves cooking. All the time he is with me in the kitchen," Anna told us. Myres has become very active, and Anna is planning to enroll him in school next year. He is completely healed and we give God the glory!

Frank from UgandaApr 08, 2016

Frank went into surgery today, and they performed a burr hole and an irrigation of the right parietal chronic hematoma. Frank seemed to enjoy the day, spending most of it sitting on his bed playing with his inflated glove and talking with his aunt and the mothers around him. He found everything in the OR very interesting and found the oxygen mask very amusing, until it was placed on his face. He is currently waking up in the (PACU) where another inflated glove is waiting for him. Please keep Frank in your prayers, that he will make a full and fast recovery.

Quinter from KenyaApr 07, 2016

Quinter went home today! They left the hospital very early in the morning, because their home is quite a long way from here. We didn't get a photo opportunity with our lovely friend before she left, but the doctor says that she is doing great. We look forward to catching up with her in six weeks time when we visit her home town Kisumu for a mobile clinic.

Frank from UgandaApr 07, 2016

Last night, Frank and his grandmother Margret arrived at CURE for his check up, and this morning he excitedly greeted the medical staff during ward rounds. They saw one of our doctors in the outpatient department who sent them for a scan, and the scan showed Frank has a right subdural collection. Frank and Margret will spend another night at the hospital as the doctors decide the appropriate course of action. Frank seems to be very happy, and his only problem is a little weakness on his left side, but he is walking and very playful! Momma Annette is at home right now after just delivering the newest member of their family named Birungi, which in Luganda means "good". Please pray for wisdom for Frank’s doctors as they decide the correct course of action.

Quinter from KenyaApr 06, 2016

Quinter is so much better today than yesterday, though she still needs some more bed rest. We went by her bed today and she told us she was feeling great and all the pain was gone. We found her and her mother Hellen enjoying a meal together, looking very happy. Keep praying for more good reports!

Sirgut from EthiopiaApr 05, 2016

Sirgut came back for her follow-up, and she is doing well, walking solidly with her crutches, and her ankle is getting better! The doctors told her to continue walking and doing exercises to help her with her ankle. We will see her progress in four months when she returns for her follow-up!

Today Quinter spent most of her day resting in bed, and her mother Hellen was by her side most of the time, keeping her company when she was not sleeping. Keep praying for her as she recovers!

Our doctors are pleased with Helen's correction! She is walking well and everything looks great, and we will see her in a year for another follow-up!

Quinter from KenyaApr 04, 2016

Surgery really does take a whole team. Today, Quinter, being far too used to surgery, hesitantly smiled while being carried into the room. Everyone worked together to correct her bone placement and even used it as an opportunity to teach others. Quinter is in good hands today and now gets to head back to the ward to rest. Prayers appreciated!

Eliud from KenyaMar 29, 2016

Eliud showed up here last last week for his appointment, but unfortunately we missed him! Our doctor says that he is doing very well, in fact he is doing so well that he won't need another review for another four months! Let's pray that the good reports will keep coming in, and that soon, it will be complete healing!

Christopher from KenyaMar 22, 2016

Christopher came in today unexpectedly, having missed the clinic in Embu. First and foremost, we gave him a CURE calendar where he found a photo of himself! Dr. Theuri removed the neck brace and said he doesn’t have to wear it anymore, making Christopher and his dad very happy. He will be taught some physiotherapy exercises to practice at home and we will still plan to see them in Embu on April 21st just to check his progress.

Why I Support CURE

Tomlin-video-still_web
Chris is excited to join CURE for the same reason most of us are part of it: Seeing the Kingdom of God at work in kids lives. "Kids right now who can't walk, they're being carried, who can't go outside because their faces look different… they get to be kids again. Because of CURE… because of you and me and everyone else involved, kids will be kids again, and be able to walk and run.
