Square from MalawiYesterday

Square is STILL at Queens trying to get an AFO, and may or may not get discharged over the weekend, so here's another featured guest on his page while we wait for him to come back - Neymar! We think he looks like he's about to enter a boxing match and is pretty sure that he's gonna win! We'll let you know on Monday what happened with Square (and if Neymar won his match)!

Gebyaw had a moral supporter today! Our compassionate nurse Tigist was by his side while his frame was being turned. It's a painful process but Gebyaw got through it with the help of Tigist!

Ridouane from Niger2 days ago

Ridouane is healing up nicely. He's still a little sore from the surgery, hence the tears, but he is on his way to healing! He's doing so well that the doctors have actually sent him home to recover. We'll be seeing him again shortly!

Joseph from Uganda2 days ago

Joseph and Grace have had a quiet morning. Joseph has been held and played with by his mother. He didn’t make the surgery list today so he will probably go into surgery early next week, please pray that his upcoming operation goes well.

We got to deliver some get well messages to Ahmad today. It may be an understatement to say he merely loves the attention ...

Square from Malawi2 days ago

Square has been out of the hospital all day today, he went to the nearby Queens public hospital to try to get an AFO from a sponsor there since he can't afford to travel to Lilongwe - we hope it works out, he's been gone since this morning! Please be praying he gets it and gets it fitted properly. He'll probably be back tomorrow since he hasn't been officially discharged yet. In the meantime, here's a photo of these little rascals who have been making friends in the ward - Harrison, Francis, Promise and Watipatso!

Joseph from Uganda3 days ago

“It is the same condition that has brought us back, this time I am hoping that Joseph is treated and he heals once and for all. However, I can say that although we are back there is some positive change, he no longer cries and vomits as much as he used to,” said Grace. Joseph is still undergoing several laboratory tests before he can be scheduled for surgery. Please keep him in your prayers.

Habiru from Uganda3 days ago

“The boy is improving slowly, slowly. Improving in everything, practicing to talk and can call 'daddy, mommy', just this problem of this neck remains,” said Juma. Habiru and Juma came back to CURE for a check up and Juma says, everything is good and he is happy to see Habiru’s improvement. Please continue to pray for Habiru and his father Juma.

Ridouane from Niger3 days ago

Ridouane’s went wonderfully yesterday! The cleft is all sewn up and is healing well. In the odd case you don't believe us that his surgery went well, check it out for yourself! Please be keeping him in your prayers as he's not the happiest camper right now.

Jim Ivan from the Philippines3 days ago

We got a picture of Noy Noy scooting around the playroom, moving from toy to toy, because we had a feeling that he wouldn’t be as cheery when he had his casts removed, and well, we were right. The good news is that it looks like he might be done with casts! But, he needs to go back to his braces, which he despised before. Physical Therapist Alex explained that no matter how much he hates them, it’s crucial for Noy Noy to wear his braces, or all the hard work might be reversed. Please pray for Noy Noy and his family, these are the things that will pay off later, but are really tough right now.

Frinzess from the Philippines3 days ago

“I don’t want my casts to come off! I like wearing them! See? I can walk just fine!” was how Frinzess’ bargaining began this morning. Poor thing has gone through a lot of cast removals, and they’ve been traumatic every time, so she decided that wearing huge cement anchors wasn’t so bad. She didn’t win the battle, but she’s winning the war against clubfeet, and she’s looking a lot better. She’s back to wearing her braces for just a little longer, then hopefully she’ll be done soon. You’re almost there Frinzess!

Stephen from Kenya4 days ago

Our head is bowed in serious shame… Stephen came, and we knew he was here. He was kind of far back in the line, so we were planning to go see him after a time. Well, we waited TOO long! We tried and we tried to find him even after his appointment was over, but to no avail. So, we wait expectantly to see him on June 7th. Despite our failings, we are so thankful and blessed to report that Stephen is good! The doctor literally wrote in his notes: “Doing well.” Praise Jesus! We’re very, VERY sorry we can’t share more with you about Stephen. Thank you for your grace, friends!

Square from MalawiDec 07, 2016

Square's doing well today! This photo is from yesterday after his operation - he was a bit loopy post-anesthesia and was giggling and giving us thumbs up a lot! We're glad he's happy, better than being in pain (although he's acting more normal today)! He needs an insole and an AFO, so we're going to send him home and arrange for him to go to '500 Miles' in Lilongwe to get it. Unfortunately, since he's almost an adult, we'll pay for the first AFO, but since they wear out he'll need to save up for getting new ones every so often, and they can be pretty expensive for people from Malawi - please be praying for him!

Thom from MalawiDec 07, 2016

Thom was in again yesterday for an appointment! His mom Ellen has been so amazing, bringing him in for appointments all the time and helping out with exercises, like in this photo. Thom said he wants a picture of himself for Christmas, so we'll see if we can try to print one up! Thandy invited him to our Christmas party for the kids in the ward on the 17th, so maybe we can get one to him then. We aren't sure if we'll have photos from that event since CKC Avanell is going home for Christmas that day, but we'll see what we can do!

Abush from EthiopiaDec 06, 2016

Abush's friends, Mariam and Tesfanesh went back to the Alemachin house today and he really wanted to go with them but he has to stay in the hospital for another day. He was a little sad about that but besides that, he is doing great!

Square from MalawiDec 06, 2016

Square's flashing his signature grin despite the fact he's going into the operating room today to have a wire removed! We're so excited for him - and he's also excited to get the wire out, get an AFO, and be able to walk around on his healed foot! We're loving the floral robe they gave him for waiting to go into theater!

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.
