Rose from Malawi on Today
Meet Rose! She's a happy girl with a pretty long burn contracture on her elbow and armpit. She'll be having her operation tomorrow afternoon, and the doctors will either do a z-plasty, where they cut zig-zags in the folded piece of skin and then put it back together straight, or she may need a skin graft. Please be praying for her as she has her surgery!

Sharon from Uganda on Today
At eight days old, Sharon has gone into surgery for an ETV/CPC and cyst fenestration. She is currently in the PACU and is still asleep, but should be waking up shortly once she is stable. She will then be transferred to the ICU. Please be praying for Sharon to have a successful recovery!

Lonjezo from Malawi on 3 days ago
Lonjezo has been discharged! Turns out she had a ton of rush rods replaced, in both femurs and one of her tibias. She can now walk on her left leg, just not the right because of the fracture. Since she has brittle bones, Kyle said if her one leg can't support her, they'll need to find a wheelchair for her. The physios are going to work it out later today to see if they need to give her one or not. Please be praying for her as she heads home and comes back July 3rd!

Hooke from Malawi on 3 days ago
Hooke was having fun in the playroom today. He's learned the Chichewa word for "take a photo of me" (ndijumbule) and was asking us to take his photo! They're going to start the turns today, so please be praying for his continued happiness!

Lysan from Malawi on 3 days ago
Lysan's doing well! They gave him some pain meds this morning, and then checked out his graft. He was a bit loopy after, but now he's up and alert and was having a blast in the playroom again.

Aaron from Uganda on 3 days ago
Aaron has gone into surgery. Our doctors performed a myelomeningocele closure, and he is currently resting in the PACU where he will be stabilized and wake up. Then, he will be transferred to the ICU where he will be reunited with Annet and will spend the night there. Annet has been very worried about the operation, and while he was in the OR she met with the spiritual team. Please be praying that he will recover well from his operation.

Hadiza had a bandage change today! She got her wraps off and some splints put in, which will help her walk as she continues to heal!

Gambo from Niger on 3 days ago
Gambo had his first bandage change today! He didn't like it too much, and is spending the rest of the day hiding in his mother's lap.

Zakari from Niger on 3 days ago
First post follow-up bandage change today. There's some dead skin around the surgery that needs to be cleaned out with diligence. While the wound cleaning itself isn't fun, Zakari is getting more and more comfortable here which is slowly bringing his personality out!

Ahmed from Niger on 3 days ago
So Ahmed's bandage free life was rather short lived as he got them replaced today. But, he's started walking around the hospital without any walker now! It's slow and tires him out, but he loves the independence and is slowly getting stronger! https://youtu.be/uOFZEt_1VPY

Newton from Uganda on 3 days ago
Newton has been discharged home today. Newton and Joyce had a good night; he cried a little but other than that, they slept well. We will see them again at the end of next month when they return to CURE for a follow up appointment. Please be praying for Newton to continue to recover well!

Ben from the Philippines on 3 days ago
Ben didn't bring his "Moses Cane" to the hospital today, which is a good sign that he's gaining much more strength. However, it's not enough to get him walking on his own, so he will need to continue on with physical therapy. It'll take a whole lot of hard work as he trains his legs to walk in a way that they aren't used to, but we have hope that he's going to keep up with it until we see him again for a follow-up with our photo-bombing doctors!

Lexie from the Philippines on 3 days ago
No more tears for Lexie during her last visit today! Yes, we said that right, today was the last clinic visit for her elbow check-up! She's looking strong and ready to go back to school soon. Even if she's got a long way until she finishes school, we declared her as a Tebow CUREkid graduate, whom we'll surely miss! Thank you for praying for Lexie, and we thank God for hearing all of our prayers for her healing!

Gerlan from the Philippines on 3 days ago
Gary is one of our partner missionaries who helps transport our patients to and from the hospital. He also does more stuff behind the scenes as we serve our CUREkids and their families. As Gerlan continues to care for his travel buddies, Gary has become Gerlan's role model even in his hairstyle! Since Gerlan is fully healed, it may be a while until we see Gerlan imitating Gary again unless he decides to tag along for a visit.

Jhon Michael from the Philippines on 3 days ago
Mac Mac came by just for a quick check on his stitches. There was some irritation, but it was quickly treated with a dressing change. His casts aren't ready to come off for a few weeks, so we continue to pray for his healing!

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.
