"I honestly lost hope that my parents will find the help I needed to get my leg fixed. We visited hospital after hospital and each time my leg was getting more and more deformed," Daniel told us. Daniel was born just like all the other kids, but he was 11 years old, his whole left leg started to swell. It hurt too much to even stand and walking was completely out of the question. His whole life started to fall apart - he could play, he couldn't help around the house, and he hit a low point when he had to drop out of school.
Daniel's parents tried to get their son help from a local hospital. The doctors there were able to get the swelling to go down, but the bones in Daniel's knee and leg had deformed. Life was never the same for Daniel. "Ever since I was in second grade, I have been wishing to be a solder, but I don't think that will be possible anymore," Daniel told us with a sadness in his voice.
Things began to look up for Daniel when another doctor at their local hospital noticed Daniel waiting and told them about us here at CURE Malawi. Daniel's mother Gloria was encouraged and a few weeks later, Daniel and his mother showed up here. Daniel was so excited when the doctor told him that his leg will be corrected and that he can become whatever in the world he wants to be! Daniel's eyes grew wide with excitement. We are very sure that Daniel's reaction was to continue his school and become a soldier! Please pray for Daniel as he gets ready for his operation!
Daniel has gone home! He'll be back next month for a review and probably another operation. Before leaving though, Daniel was with the physical therapy team to go over a number of exercises he should be doing at home. Please keep Daniel in your prayers that he continues to heal well and that he stays diligent with his physical therapy!
Daniel is doing really amazing! This morning our CURE Malawi doctors said Daniel can go home and he'll come back in a few weeks! Please keep Daniel in your prayers as he is recovering and working out how to live at home with his frame on.
Daniel is amazingly already up and walking! Our physical therapy team says Daniel should be walking as much as he can to help strengthen his bones. In a few days, Daniel will be going home and he will return in a few weeks. Your prayers and support for Daniel are appreciated!
Daniel has received his operation! The doctors installed a frame on Daniel's leg which will allow them to correct it slowly. It takes longer but it will allow for better correction. Daniel will have another operation a few weeks to do a bone grafting to help his newly corrected bone to grow healthily!
Daniel is here at CURE Malawi to have his leg corrected after visiting a few local hospitals and being sent away. We are so excited to have Daniel here so our CURE doctors can give this young man a new life walking! Please help Daniel to have a smooth treatment by sending your support and prayers!
