Shernan

Philippines - Age 4
August 15, 2022

Let us all take a moment to admire Shernan, who is even more handsome now that his operation has fully healed! He just returned to Tebow CURE for a second round of surgery to close the cleft on his palate, which is positioned at the roof of the mouth. Repairing the cleft palate, when combined with speech therapy, significantly reduces the likelihood of speech disorders. Fortunately, thanks to our partnership with Smile Train and wonderful supporters like you, Shernan will receive sponsored surgery and free sessions with a speech therapist once his palate is healed as part of our comprehensive cleft program! We'll see him again in October to check on his progress!

Chris

Philippines - Age 1
August 15, 2022

It's been a hot minute since we gave you an update on our sweet friend Chris, but we're delighted to share the good news that his recovery has been going well! He has now switched to wearing orthopedic shoes to help keep his feet in a plantigrade (upright) position and stop his clubfoot from recurring. The doctors have noticed that Chris walks with his feet turned inward, but it's too early to tell if he needs another surgery. For now, they will have to keep an eye on him to see if he requires another trip to the OR when he turns three. Chris will keep wearing his orthopedic shoes for the time being and revisit us in four months.

Crisano

Philippines - Age 7
August 15, 2022

Crisano was scheduled to have surgery in May, but his parents requested to schedule his surgery at the same time as his older sister and brother to minimize their travels. Thankfully, Crisano and his siblings were finally given the gift of healing through surgery! One of our staff members from the spiritual ministry department, Mary Ann, prayed for Crisano and his successful surgery before he was brought into the operating room. Shortly after, the medical staff conducted a tendon lengthening and transfer procedure to correct the deformity in his right foot. After everything was finished, Crisano's foot was put in a cast to help keep it upright while he healed. We appreciate your support and participation in helping us make a physical and spiritual difference in the lives of our patients and their families. We'll check in with Crisano again next week to see how he's doing.

Ezekiel

Philippines - Infant
August 15, 2022

Today is finally the day Mommy Rechille and Daddy Bryan have long waited for—Ezekiel’s surgery! Ezekiel was initially scheduled for surgery last June, but it was postponed twice due to pneumonia and diarrhea. There were detours and delays, but we thank God Ezekiel is now in perfect health and ready to undergo surgery! Doctor Dino and the medical team worked on closing the split in Ezekiel’s lip and partially stitched together the gap in Ezekiel’s palate - the roof of his mouth. This is done to make his future palate repair procedure easier, which will be done in three months. Thanks to your prayers, Ezekiel’s surgery was a success, and he was discharged right away so he can continue to rest and recover at home and be reunited with Daddy Bryan. Ezekiel will be on a soft diet for three weeks, and we cannot wait to see his progress when he sees us again in November!

Rizamol

Philippines - Age 10
August 11, 2022

We give thanks to God that Rizamol's surgery was successful! The operating room was bustling with activity as nurses and surgeons readied the necessary instruments and equipment for the procedure. Doctors Elsa, Micah, and Ahmed, a resident surgeon undergoing training with us, started working on correcting Rizamol's clubfoot as everything was ready. To restore more normal movement and maintain Rizamol's foot in the plantigrade (upright) posture, they carried out some tendon lengthening and a tendon transfer procedure. Rizamol's surgery was a success, thanks to the hard work of our medical staff and your prayers. Soon after the opertation, she was cleared to be discharged by the medical team. https://youtu.be/A6A9oEAchG0
