Before he has surgery, MarkFavour needed to go to the radiology department for an x-ray. "The doctor said they needed to see under the skin on my hand. They said a picture. I still didn’t understand how they would see through my skin!" MarkFavour shared. The image will give the doctors better insight into the severity of MarkFavour's elbow condition and the available options to correct the joint. As MarkFavour starts his journey at CURE Kenya, please welcome him! Thank you!

Thank you!
Beby Jane had a special visitor today: CUREkid Ara Jane, who had almost the same knee condition as Beby Jane and had surgery at Tebow CURE in 2019. Ara Jane's story of transformation and healing has inspired many patients from Tebow CURE, and one of them is Beby Jane. Ara Jane encouraged Beby Jane to be patient during the process. Like her, the journey toward healing and transformation will take a while, but it will all be worth it! Ara Jane's mother, Aida, told Annabella, Beby Jane's mother, about Ara Jane's story and how they overcame many challenges during Ara Jane's healing. It was beautiful to witness a former patient share a powerful testimony with a current patient! Beby Jane was discharged today and will return soon for a follow-up appointment. Please pray for her fast recovery and that her relationship with Jesus will grow even deeper! Thank you!
Brave Ashenafi recently went to the OR to begin his surgical treatment at the CURE Children's Hospital of Ethiopia. His surgeon, Dr. Tesfaye, removed his old bandages and cleaned his scalp, removing the dead and damaged tissue. Since most of Ashenafi's scalp was damaged by the hyena attack, Dr. Tesfaye took some skin from Ashenafi's thigh and grafted it to his scalp. The successful surgery ended with Dr. Tesfaye applying a new bandage to Ashenafi's scalp. Ashenafi is now back in the ward recovering. Please pray for his speedy recovery and send encouraging messages to aid his healing. Thank you!
Salamatou is recovering very well after surgery to improve mobility in her right arm and hand, thanks to your prayers and encouragement. "I see much progress in the healing of my arm. I thank God and the people at CURE who encourage me,” said Salamatou. Before leaving for home, Roumana, one of our nurses, changed Salamatou's bandage and advised her not to get water on it and to take care of it so the healing would be perfect. Salamatou will be back in a week for a follow-up visit. Please continue to pray for her recovery. Stay blessed!
