“I am very excited to have surgery! When I get my prosthetic, I want to be able to play frisbee and run! Oh! I want to dance hip hop, too! I know how to dance and move with swag! I actually watched Hip Hop International when my favorite dance crew, Upeepz, won!” Harry shares with enthusiasm by showing a preview of his dance moves!
“When Harry was born, he didn’t develop a limb due to amniotic band syndrome. He started using crutches when he was in first grade,” shares Harry’s mom Evelyn. Even though Harry has lived his childhood life with one leg, he’s been a keen help to Evelyn at home and a sharp student in school. Harry adds, “At home, I help clean and cook. I can make rice and cook anything they want. I’m also in 9th grade and my favorite subject is Math since I hope to be an accountant one day. Although I am not able to join some extra curricular activities in school, I am surrounded with a lot of friends!"
Through our partners from the Seeds of Dignity, Harry was able to get connected to Tebow CURE and have surgery. He will have an amputation for stump revision, which will fit well into a prosthesis once he heals.
This has been a long awaited dream for Harry to walk on both legs! Together with you, we are honored to play a part in his dream being fulfilled by providing for his surgery. Please pray for Harry!
The smile was back today as Harry learned some stretches in physical therapy. This will help keep his muscles loose as he heals. Part of that smile is because he’s feeling great and is pain-free, and part of it is because he’s going home today! But, he still needs prayers for continued healing, please keep praying for Harry!
With bright lights surrounding the surgical table, Dr. Dave intricately made the cut on Harry's right leg that will best fit in a prosthesis. His leg was lifted up a few times during the process as Dr. Dave scanned the details of the amputation before he closed with stitches. The first step is over and there were no smiles from Harry yet, since he is sound asleep in the recovery room. While we wait for him to wake up, feel free to write your prayers and send it through a Get Well letter!
"This is Harry's first time at a hospital. Thank God, he hasn't been hospitalized before, he's a healthy kid. But with God's grace, he will heal in time," says Evelyn. "I'm not even nervous at all," says Harry with an unceasing smile. He's so excited to have surgery so he can heal quick and be sized for a prosthetic! One step at a time, his dream will finally come true!
