Bezawit is a sweet and friendly little girl! She has come to CURE Ethiopia with her mother Belaynesh seeking help for her bowed legs. It's a condition where her legs bend outwards instead of being straight. “She limps when she walks and running is out of the question for her because she always falls. Even if she runs a little” Belaynesh shared and continues, “sometime she complains of pain even after walking just a little bit”.
Bezawit's family noticed the problem with her legs when she started walking and they have been searching for help ever since. A little bit ago, a hospital referred them here to CURE. Our doctors were so happy to tell Bezawith that they could indeed help her! Her treatment started with medication to strengthen her bones and now that they are strong, it's time to surgically straighten them!
Please join us in welcoming this family as they start their healing journey!
Bezawit came back for her check-up today, and she is doing wonderfully! After seeing all the healing progress she made our doctors decided to remove the wires she had on both legs. She will start walking practice from home, and we will check on her healing progress in few months.
Bezawit is doing wonderful and it is now time for her to head back home! She will continue her recovery from the comfort of her own space and we will see her again in a couple of weeks when she returns for her check-up! Please keep on praying for her - for a speedy recovery and safe return back to CURE when the time comes!
Thank you all for your prayers! Bezawit's surgery went well. Dr. Tewodros installed a piece of metal called an "eight plate" in both of Bezawit's knees. The eight plates will help guide her leg bones to straighten themselves as they grown over the next several months. Once her legs are straight, the eight plates will be removed! It's a longer process, but minimally invasive and the best choice for Bezawit! Bezawit is back in the ward resting and recovering from her operation.
Meet Bezawit! She is here at CURE Ethiopia getting ready for her surgery! She will have an operation on both legs to help her straighten them out. “I’m in grade five” Bezawit told us mixing up her age and year in school. She's a fun little one! Please pray for her - for a successful surgery and for a speedy recovery!
