Jhezzel from the Philippines on Yesterday
She's all packed and ready to go! Jhezzel brushed her hair and smiled at the camera. Even though they planned to leave early for their 7-hour trip, Ramon, Melissa, and Jhezzel hung out in the ward until the mall next door opened. They wanted to buy an extra pillow so Jhezzel's legs could be propped up during their travel. Her healing journey will continue at home, please pray with us that even though we are far away, God hears her desire to have stronger bones every day!

Ryan from the Philippines on 2 days ago
As Ryan continued to heal, he stopped by physical therapy to start moving his arm. Today, he stretched his arm as high as he could––something that he hasn’t done in a long time. Pastor Ruel was right there to support him and gather the dressing materials that they needed to bring home. Pastor Ruel and Ryan’s parents have been old friends. Since Ryan was little, Pastor Ruel has been a part of Ryan’s growth in mentorship. Ryan’s parents and Pastor Ruel’s friendship has grown for a long time––a proof that Ryan is blessed to have a great community in this journey!

Cheryl from the Philippines on 2 days ago
With a little help from bubbles and while safely tucked into Rolly's arms, Cheryl braved through her cast change today. The bandage on her hand was no longer there, but her feet will continue to heal for a couple more weeks with another set of casts. Based on her old worn out casts, we know that this new set will not stop her from moving! After a few weeks, her feet will be ready and finally cast-free!

Ariel from the Philippines on 2 days ago
Ariel is back and showed us that he did his homework exercises at home! He got onto the platform really quickly and showed us what he is now able to do. He's still quiet but gave us unlimited hi-fives to interact with us. This brave boy slowly bounced back to his feet and has learned to walk using the right muscles in therapy! We pray that his muscles and bones continue to get stronger every day!

Jenalyn from the Philippines on 2 days ago
“She’s been through so much,” Dr. Shelley said as she gave a teary-eyed Jenalyn a sympathetic hug. Jenalyn wasn’t due to return until November, but Gemma brought her in because “her cast smells”. It was a smart decision, Jenalyn was having a reaction to her sutures, causing an infection. We removed the sutures, gave her in a fresh cast and put her on antibiotics, and now she’s back on the road to healing. We extended her follow up date by a week so she can get some extra healing time in, but Dr. Jun encouraged her to start trying to walk without her crutch soon, please pray for encouragement as she tackles this next phase in healing!

Dustin from the Philippines on 2 days ago
We hardly recognized this tall, grown up boy! Dustin came in for his one year checkup, and no grumpy faces today, everything is all good! He has seriously grown a ton, and showed off for us how well he can stand up straight now. He still has a plate in his femur, and that will need to come out in the near future, so we’ll see him back soon to get that taken care of. Sometimes, when a patient lives far away or is unable to return for their final checkup, we don’t get to see the final results of healing, but this is what it looks like, thanks to all of you who pray and give!

Princess from the Philippines on 2 days ago
Princess didn’t waste any time getting comfortable in her favorite spot in the hospital, curled up with Dr. Jun! She’s seeing progress slowly but surely, but since it’s been confirmed that she has Rickets, her femurs have begun to bow slightly, while her lower legs have healed. She needs to continue to take her vitamins, and hopefully as she grows and her bones strengthen, she will straighten out. We’ll keep monitoring her over the next several months, and we’ll be praying for God’s miraculous healing!

Jhezzel from the Philippines on 2 days ago
More smiles from this beauty! Jhezzel spent a ton of time coloring in the playroom today. After a while, she was ready to go back and crawl back into bed, telling us that her legs hurt. We were impressed at how long she managed to be out and about! Also, a fun fact! We found out Jhezzel’s secret for her perfect, silky smooth hair. Ramon is a hairdresser, and he does all of her haircare! She's getting the royal treatment all around!

Jhezzel from the Philippines on 3 days ago
“It feels like I’ve been in surgery all day!” sighed an exhausted Dr. Shelley at the end of Jhezzel’s surgery. Her surgery wrapped up around 1 pm, but it was a long, intense procedure. The entire staff was tired, but it was all worth it when we saw Jhezzel wake up with a smile, believe it or not! Meanwhile, Melissa and Ramon waited and worshipped upstairs with the Spiritual Ministry team, and expressed their gratitude for God’s timing. They were told by others that this would be the perfect age for Jhezzel’s surgery, but didn’t think they could afford it, and then found Tebow CURE Hospital! So indeed, the entire family is being impacted, physically and spiritually!

Jhezzel from the Philippines on Oct 16, 2018
It's a dark, stormy afternoon here in Davao, and we weren't sure if Jhezzel and her parents would make it to the hospital! We're happy to report that they did, and we didn't waste any time getting to know her, before she was even admitted. Despite the unfamiliar surroundings and long journey today, Jhezzel was friendly right off the bat. She's excited for surgery tomorrow, and excited at the thought of being able to walk soon! Please keep her in your prayers, tomorrow's a big day for Jhezzel and her family!

Ryan from the Philippines on Oct 15, 2018
Ryan has been having dressing changes daily, but he still closes his eyes during them! If he’d open his eyes, he’d see that he’s healing well, but fortunately, he has Pastor Ruel to monitor his progress! Eugene has gone home to work and to help with the rest of the family, so we are so grateful that Pastor Ruel has been able to stay in town with Ryan. The pair will go home soon, where dressing changes will continue. We know that Ryan has a huge group watching out for him, including you, our prayer team and supporters, thanks for being part of his team!

John from the Philippines on Oct 15, 2018
We saw John briefly in physical therapy, but he snuck out before we got a chance to take a picture! Everything is looking awesome though, his hand is healing nicely, and he was decked out in new high tops! And of course, that dimpled smile was intact as always! We’ll see him back in a few months and we’ll grab a picture then, we’re confident he’ll have serious progress to show off then!

James from the Philippines on Oct 15, 2018
James was back today and got some steps under his belt in a new set of camouflage casts. Dr. Jun played double duty, checking James’ feet while providing a cozy shoulder for another patient’s sister who was exhausted from their long trip to the hospital! Sometimes our job descriptions are very loose, but we’re happy to serve wherever the opportunity arises, especially when cute babies are involved!

Clynt from the Philippines on Oct 15, 2018
Good news! Clynt's final cast was removed today just as we expected! He was excited to see his foot finally straight! And to keep it from going back to it's usual position for the past 10 years, Clynt will need to wear a brace to help with healing. Nurse Jhun made Clynt a splint in place of a brace until we can track one down for him as Clynt works on his exercises in physical therapy!

Regie from the Philippines on Oct 15, 2018
We think that Regie's enthusiasm never faded away when we saw him back with a big smile in the playroom today. There was only one moment where some fears snatched Regie's joy during his pin removal experience in the clinic room. It didn't last long though and he moved right into physical therapy! Hopefully, the pin removal experience didn't scare him off and he will come back in a few weeks. We ask that you would continue to pray that God gives him strength as he goes through his exercises–– another important part of his healing!

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.
