Look who's still chuggin' along like a champ with her casting! Mariam is so brave and strong, and we're always encouraged by her smile amidst some of the discomfort of new casts. Keep the prayers coming!

Rose from UgandaToday

We were hoping to see Rose for her review on the 18th so when she didn't show up, we tried calling Rose's dad, but the call wouldn't go through. We'll keep trying to reach them and let you know when we do! Thank you for your continued prayers for Rose.

Tiyanjane from MalawiYesterday

Look at this lovely girl! We're going to miss seeing Tiyanjane around the ward now that she's finally going home! She had a bit of pain this morning when the nurses took off her dressing, but otherwise she's doing pretty well! She'll be back August 22nd for a checkup and some physiotherapy!

Angel from KenyaYesterday

Angel was one of the first surgeries of the day. Praise Jesus, it went well! She made it back to the ward and is recovering now. Continue to pray for this little hero. Pray for her healing, and also for her to one day know the God who gave her life.

Chosadziwa from MalawiYesterday

Chosadziwa was showing Dr. Lubega and the nurses where his feet hurt during ward rounds today! Poor kid - there was a bit of chafing from the frame so Dr. Lubega said to use more gauze to keep that from happening. Unfortunately, the turns still need to continue but his feet are definitely starting to look more normal!

Chakupaleza from ZambiaYesterday

Nothing beats a mother's protection, even if it's just from mosquitos! While they wait for surgery, Mirriam takes Chakupaleza for walks in the sun and watches him sleep. He has a great mother and a much greater future!

Lonjezo from MalawiYesterday

Lonjezo looked like she was crying when we walked up to her today, but when she saw the camera she immediately grinned for a photo, so we're not sure if she's in pain from her operation or if her eyes are just watering since our translator is on vacation this week! Either way please be praying for her as she recovers! Dr. Lubega straightened her tibia yesterday, cutting a wedge out of the bone to make it straight and then using a rod and plate to hold it in place as well as strengthen it since her bones are brittle.

Awesome from MalawiYesterday

Awesome is always so serious! We have a hard time getting a smile out of him - that doesn't stop Madalitso though! Madalitso and Awesome are already good friends and Madalitso was tickling Awesome in this photo! We asked Dr. Lubega and he said that Awesome's hand looks good, the skin graft has taken, but they want to check it in the ward on Monday before they make any further plans.

Stelia from MalawiYesterday

Stelia had her operation yesterday and it went really well! She's recovering in the ward now, eating some lunch. The doctors opened up her thigh and cut her femur at the curves to make it straight. They then put a rush rod in to keep the bone straight and sealed it all up again. It was a major operation and Dr. Lubega is having the nurses check her blood today because she's a bit pale and her heart is beating rather fast. He's worried she might need a transfusion, but unfortunately her blood type is rare so we're not sure if we'll even be able to get blood if she needs it. Please be praying that she will either not need any blood, or that some of her blood type will become available.

Edwin from ZambiaYesterday

At first glance, you will notice that Edwin's head shape is a little different. This uniqueness is what makes most of us celebrate who he is. However, it is also an indication of hydrocephalus which he has come to CURE to get treated for. Please join us in praying for him!

Michael from the PhilippinesYesterday

Well, we didn’t get to see Michael’s contagious smile today, he was nervous, and so he was being extra shy. Both casts came off though, so he left wearing regular shoes! He’s “relearning” how to walk, his new feet feel kind of odd, but he’ll get there soon! Stay tuned for future updates, hoping for that smile to return next time we see Michael!

Gina from the PhilippinesYesterday

Gina had an x-ray today, and while there was hope that the pile of pins could come out of her elbow, it’s not quite time yet. Dr. Reyes advised her to wait one more month to give all those pieces of bone more time to stick together. She was her normal calm and cool self, and wasn’t too disappointed. Meanwhile, she learned a few exercises to make sure to keep her elbow flexible for when she does get her pins out. We’ll see her back next month!

Jasmen from the PhilippinesYesterday

A little bit of deja vu for you guys, here is Jasmen and Dr. Reyes side by side again today, checking out her x-ray, just like two weeks ago! We might have a future doctor here, she really loves looking at her x-rays. She is sling free, and left with just a gauze pad on her arm, Jasmen’s healing great!

Jucy from the PhilippinesYesterday

Jucy has a great routine going during her follow ups! She comes, cries in anticipation, Dr. “Pastor” Jun tries to comfort her, she still cries, and once her dressings are removed, she’s fine and happy! We wish we could omit the crying part, but at least we know that it’s short lived. Her arms are looking so good, they’re healing well, with no sign of infection. She played in the physical therapy room afterward, shoveling sand and working a puzzle. More achievements unlocked! After not using those muscles for years, her strength and dexterity are truly miraculous. Our God heals!

Shairah from the PhilippinesYesterday

Shairah was showing off her dramatic teenage girl side today, and it was super cute! As Nurse Jun removed her cast, she laughed and winced and grimaced all while repeating, “It tickles!” She was really discouraged when she found out that she needs one more cast for about six more weeks, but we sent her out the door with a big dose of hugs and prayers. She can always use more though, please join us in praying for Shairah!

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.
