Elleni came for her follow up appointment and is doing great! She's doing so well with her shoe raise and has great growth in her right leg with the extension rods she has in place. She'll return after three months to check on the progression of the growth and if it has reached the desired length. If all heals and grows well, she'll have an operation on her left leg to stop the growth! We pray she keeps on the path of success!

Why I Support CURE

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.
