"I thought I would also be discharged like my friends have been, but Brian is having fevers and isn't feeding well," Linet said with a very low voice. The doctors sent him to the lab where he is being tested for malaria and to also have a complete blood count done. On the bright side however, Brian is out of ICU and he and Linet received some encouraging get well cards. We will continue to pray for them.

Dustin from the Philippines on 2 days ago
Dustin made it back today for a follow-up check up. Although there were some glimpses of Grumpy Dustin again during X-ray, he felt better after getting a snack and got the "OK" to head back home. He got a new splint and we'll see him soon for another follow-up!

Alzayn from the Philippines on 2 days ago
Alzayne is back for his second week of casting and we are so happy to see a significant change from the deformity. We can't imagine what it will look like within the following weeks! Unfortunately, with the tropical heat and diaper brushing close to his cast, he's developed a diaper rash on his leg. We were able to clean it out and put on some medicine, so we hope that it looks better next week when he comes back!

Aleja from the Philippines on 2 days ago
How can you miss this cutie when she comes to visit? We are on the watch for Aleja's improvement and we see that she is doing well based on her X-ray! She also got to meet CUREkid J-vie who was introduced the idea of SIGN nails since Aleja is the right model for it. Obviously, she was pleased to share that she's one of the success stories followed with her smile of course. We'll keep an eye on her and will see her back in August!

Reynaldo from the Philippines on 2 days ago
Reynaldo stood tall today as he walked in with his "almost" straight feet. His left foot needs a little work, but exercise and nice, firm, high-cut shoes should do the job since we do not have AFO braces available in his size. Reynaldo and his dad Reynaldo paid attention to all of Dr. Jun's instructions, which shows their determination to see Reynaldo become fully healed!

Ian from the Philippines on 2 days ago
Well look who's back with his happy smile! Ian and his ever supportive parents are here for his follow-up! His cast was removed and he went straight to physical therapy. "He's really done well walking in that cast, doc! We see a huge difference by the way he walks!" Meliton shares with enthusiasm. We are so glad to hear the good news and we look forward to seeing Ian improve after continuing his exercises. After encouraging him to use his story as a testament of God's love, Dr. Jun gave him a manly handshake to send him home!

YERAINI from the Dominican Republic on 3 days ago
''The time has arrived!'' were the last words that Claribel, the mother of Yerani said before going into the OR. The surgery lasted around three hours, Dr. Santana and the team placed an iron frame on her leg to help fix her deformity. The following day Yerani was discharged and we look forward to hearing from her again on Tuesday at her follow up appointment. Please be praying for her!

Chisomo got his shoe today and was wearing it! It's quite an apparatus - he has a knee brace on too. Now that he has it, he and his mom can go back to Lilongwe!

Tresford from Zambia on 3 days ago
The kids are enjoying their afternoons these days because they get to hangout in the playroom doing different fun activities. Here Tresford is seen stacking his boxes which he seems to enjoy! Please be praying for him and all the other kids in the ward that their stay in the hospital will be one of healing and also fun as they do different fun things in the playroom.

Loveness is doing well. She worked up the energy to get out of bed and go see a movie in the play room. Great way to relax! Please be praying for her healing!

David from Kenya on 3 days ago
“He’s feeling better. We slept last night!” David’s mama told us today. David seemed better today. His mama’s love for him is evident through her smiles and play. Poor David didn’t get to see his friend Olivia because she left early this morning, but we know Olivia was sad to say her goodbyes yesterday. We’re thankful that David had a friend for some days in the hospital though! And we’re also thankful for the love that David’s mama has for him. Please pray that tomorrow’s cast change goes well for David.

Chisomo from Malawi on 3 days ago
Chisomo is back! We haven't seen him for four years but he's doing so amazing - and we got a chance to meet his little brother Emmanuel too! CURE is doing research on post-op frame patients with clubfoot, and Chisomo is a brilliant success case. You can barely tell any difference between his foot that had clubfoot and his foot that was normal! His mom says, "My son is so much better now. He is able to play football and he walks to school without pain or discomfort!"

Mayamiko from Malawi on 3 days ago
Mayamiko came in today for a research project about the outcomes from frames on clubfoot! Unfortunately she's one of the ones who hasn't had as good an outcome, her feet are still tight and it looks as if her clubfoot is reoccurring. Dr. Karolina had us take a video of her walking to show Dr. James when he is back from vacation, and instructed her dad to bring her to their local follow up clinic as she is most likely going to be booked for another operation. When clubfoot is treated in infancy with casting there is a very high, over 90% success rate and low rates of reoccurrence, but for older children like Mayamiko the outcome is usually not as good. We are working to raise awareness in Malawi about how easy it is to treat this condition as long as you get help early! Please be praying for her, as she still has difficulties walking and can't go to school everyday because of it, and will probably need another surgery.

Chosadziwa from Malawi on 3 days ago
Chosadziwa came in today to participate in a clubfoot frame research study! We were so happy to see how well he's doing! He still doesn't walk quite as easily as someone who had their clubfoot treated as a baby, but it's a huge improvement compared to what it was. He says, "When I came here I hoped I would become better, but I never imagined myself walking like I can walk today! It's like I have been reborn without any deformity. My life has transformed, from zero walking to jumping and dancing with joy. I am so thankful to CURE and all the donors who helped with my treatment." He went on to explain how he is a better person in his walk with Jesus and is going to church!

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.
