Aldrich from the Philippines on Today
We might have our hands full with this active dude! As we chatted with his family, Aldrich peeked out from his sheet, then when it was time to ask him questions, he’d duck underneath with a giggle, then reemerge with a grin…or a stuck out tongue. We love his spunk, and we pray that it will help in his determination to recover and regain his strength soon! Aldrich has surgery tomorrow, please pray for a successful, calm procedure!

Elysha from the Philippines on Today
Elysha and Storyteller Marlene's friendship began right after Elysha pointed to Marlene to be carried by her, then stared at Marlene's eyes for the longest time. She's definitely sweet and must've gotten it from her mom Karen. Not too long after, Elysha got so comfortable being carried by Marlene that she immediately fell asleep when she got back to Karen. Elysha may not have lots of word to say just yet, but her actions tell us that she's someone we'd like to keep! Tomorrow is Elysha's surgery and we ask that you pray for her and Karen as they start her healing process!

Richell from the Philippines on Today
We wondered how long it would be before Richell asked her regular question. She made it about 10 seconds. “Doc, do I need casts again!?!” she nervously asked Nurse Ken. She got the answer she wanted, “No!” And, there’s more good news! She only needs to wear her braces at night, and can wear regular shoes during the day. As long as she keeps following instructions, which she’s done so far, she’ll be cast-free for good! Thank you for praying for our patients and all of their requests, which includes “little” things like being cast-free!

Alzayn from the Philippines on Today
Alzayn was feeling shy as usual today, but gave us a smile from a distance while he played in Timmy’s Playroom. He’s hitting all of his standard toddler milestones, which includes liberal use of the word “no!” He’s hitting all of his milestones in his healing as well, he still needs to wear his braces for 23 hours a day, but he’ll be back in a month. We’re praying at that point, we can say “yes!” to Alzayn wearing his braces for fewer hours a day!

Cristian from the Philippines on Feb 14, 2019
"I remember you too!" says Cristian to Josiah who was a part of our community outreach team that Cristian met during mobile clinic. Cristan showed Josiah a few Youtube videos of what his community looks like, but it won't be long until John gets to see that familiar place again. He's feeling much better today so he's all packed and ready to go home. Him and his "beshie" John will part ways today, but they're not too sad because, as John told us, they will "keep in touch through cellphones!" We hope that you keep in touch with him through Get Well Messages too! We'll be sure to read those to him when he comes back for a follow-up appointment!

John from the Philippines on Feb 14, 2019
We know how staying in bed can be a bit of a bore so Charrilyn took time to stroll around the hospital with John in a wheelchair. He's feeling much better today so we gave him lots of hi-fives! Adding to a great day, we found out John gets to go home! His home is on another island, far from Davao. It will be a long trip for him and Charrilyn. The bonus is that John gets to ride on a plane again! Until he comes back for a follow-up, please continue to pray for John's healing!

Herlen Mae from the Philippines on Feb 14, 2019
“In PT again!” Herlen told us with a smile, this is just another step in the process for her. She’s been on crutches, but can start putting some weight on her cast. We’re all hoping that her time in PT will be short lived, and that she’s done with surgery for good. Please keep praying for Herlen’s recovery, she’s been working hard, and has been so patient through it all!

Blissy from the Philippines on Feb 14, 2019
Steve from the Tim Tebow Foundation joined us today during clinic, and was hanging out in Timmy’s Playroom with the kids! Blissy was interested and intrigued by him, but made sure to keep her distance. She wanted to keep her distance from Dr. Shelley as well, and wasn’t happy when she poked and prodded at her leg, but the good news is she’s healing really well. She’ll come back soon for another follow up, but for now, it’s a waiting game for her to be healed and strong enough for her prosthetic. Please pray for patience while she and her family await the next step in her healing!

John from the Philippines on Feb 13, 2019
We found John in the same position we did yesterday, off in dreamland! This time he had a pile of dolls and stuffed animals surrounding him, visitors from the playroom! Charrilyn told us that he’s been having some pain, and had trouble sleeping last night, but he’s making up for it now. Tomorrow is clinic day, so we’re hoping he’ll be in the mood to go upstairs and play with his other friends who are coming in for check ups!

Cristian from the Philippines on Feb 13, 2019
“He’s really itchy!” Cristine told us sympathetically. Poor Cristian’s face was twisted in discomfort, his toes and legs were itching, which is normal, but zero fun. We were able to extract a small smile though, thanks to all the Get Well messages he received overnight! Our kids and parents love receiving messages of prayer and encouragement from around the world, so feel free to add your well wishes under “Send a Message to Cristian” at the bottom of his profile!

Mary Jean from the Philippines on Feb 12, 2019
When Mary Jean came by last week, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to celebrate her healing and invited her to Night to Shine! So this weekend, she met other CUREkids like Daniel who was also celebrating the good news of becoming fully healed. But not only that, Mary Jean was reminded that God loves her and He cares about her even though she’s not at the hospital anymore. Thanks to our partnership with the Tim Tebow Foundation, we got to show that love through a prom night to remember!

We got a few personal messages from Ann Rose prior to Night to Shine this weekend. She was so excited to be a part of the event that she wanted to make sure that she was in the right place at the right time! By the looks of her “model pose” at the photo booth, Ann Rose had a great time celebrating as she walked down the red carpet, clubfoot-free! We are thankful for our partnership with the Tim Tebow Foundation and to many of you who allowed her healing to become a possibility!

“The monkey’s swinging, and the bird’s flying around!” John told Charrilyn about the critters above his bed when he returned to the ward after surgery this morning! Needless to say, we think his medication was working well! He waved to us as we walked in to visit him, but this is what happened a few seconds later, again, thank you medicine! And thanks to all of you, for praying for our little buddy John!

Christian and “beshie” John didn’t get the post surgery chatting in today that they hoped to. They were in almost the exact same position as they were yesterday, but today both were crashed out hard! Both boys had surgery this morning, but now, they’re are on the road to healing. We were relieved to see them snoozing away, that’s a great sign that they’re comfortable, which can be a challenge in the hours after surgery. We know that your prayers are a big help too, so thanks for praying for our CUREkids!

Ryan from the Philippines on Feb 12, 2019
We’ve been keeping track of Ryan’s healing progress as he stays in Davao for dressing changes. Pastor Ruel is his main care taker in the meantime. So as Tebow CURE hosted Night to Shine locally, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to invite Ryan and Pastor Ruel! Ryan may not be done with his treatment yet, but we still celebrated God’s love for Ryan together with Pastor Ruel through this special night. By the looks of it, they truly enjoyed a quick change of scenery!

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.
