CURE in Philippines

The picture above is of CURE in Philippines. Everyone who serves with CURE in Philippines, from medical professionals to office staff, are dedicated to providing the highest quality medical and spiritual care to people who, without CURE, couldn't find it and couldn't afford it, just like Annie. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Annie. When you give a gift through Annie's CUREkids profile, your contribution will help us continue our work in countries like Philippines. Have more questions? Ask us.

Monthly Giving: Be a Hero!

When you partner with us monthly, we'll send you an email each month to introduce you to a different child who was helped because of your generosity. You can choose to follow their updates and send them get well messages. That means that each year, you're a part of helping 12 different children, beginning with Annie. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Annie's Story

“I like being a part of the plays and reading fictions in my Filipino class. I hang out with my best friend Maxie and make sure to send my dad a text message when I hang out with her,” Annie tells us.

“I like being a part of the plays and reading fictions in my Filipino class. I hang out with my best friend Maxie and make sure to send my dad a text message when I hang out with her,” Annie tells us.

Being Arnulfo’s only child, we can tell that Annie is definitely a daddy’s girl. Arnulfo admits it as he says, “We are really close! She comes to me if she needs anything. I don’t have a problem with her. She has high grades in school, too! We’ve had an initial check by a local ortho surgeon in town but that didn’t come to pass. So I think this is God’s answered prayer, when we saw an ad on a poster from her school. I am 100% happy to hear about it and meet the Tebow CURE staff in town.” We are humbled to be an instrument of God’s provision for Arnulfo as he hopes for Annie to “be able to graduate and find work in the future!”

“I can walk but I can’t really run because my legs hurt. I sometimes get bullied in school but I just let them be. I don’t do anything.” Annie tells us about the struggles of having bowed legs since birth. And like many CUREkids who came back to their hometown after surgery, Annie will be a walking testimony to her community about a God who can make all things possible.

As Annie goes through her healing process, we get to tell her that God hears her heart’s desires including her dream to work in the IT field someday! Thanks to your partnership with us, we are able to give hope to kids like Annie!

Annie and Arnulfo stopped by last December but because of the holidays we were closed. Thankfully, we opened after that and they decided to reschedule. Annie has met her goal, which is to walk without any assistance! In fact, she can go up and down the steps at school without any help. “Even when she was on a wheelchair, my wife and I still took her to school and carried her up the steps,” Arnulfo told us. Annie’s dedication and hard work, not only with her studies but also with her healing progress, is possible in part because of her parents' support. And when they come to see us for a follow-up, they are reminded that they’re not the only ones hoping and praying for her healing. They have you supporting and providing for her medical needs too!

Annie is back for more physical therapy today. The goal is to walk without using her walker anymore. PT intern Jommel boosted up her confidence through exercises and Annie practiced to walk without an assistive device! Some of the stretching made Annie laugh, but she promises to remember all of it so she's stronger when she comes to visit us in December! Photo of Annie

Annie and Arnulfo made the long trip to Tebow CURE today to get her casts off for good! She took a few tentative steps on her new legs, which are looking fabulous by the way, but she was satisfied with that. She’ll keep working on standing and walking once her confidence increases, it’s a work in progress. Unfortunately, her x-ray revealed that she has Rickets, but the good news is, now that we know, we can work on treating it with vitamin supplements and a lot of sunshine, which fortunately, we have plenty of here! We’ll see her in a few months, please pray for improvement! Photo of Annie

Annie and her cheerleaders are back for a follow-up today! "Thank God! She will finally be able to walk and be able to go to school soon!" shares Annie's mom Valentina with excitement! Her old casts are replaced with long-leg casts that will allow her to walk. Physical therapy is a little scary for Annie, but with the help of Arnulfo and Annie as they cheer her on Annie will do just fine as she heads back home! Thanks for being a part of Annie's team as we continue to pray for her healing! Photo of Annie

"My legs tickle," Annie tells us. She got a new pair of casts this morning before she headed home! In a few weeks, she will be back for a follow-up. We asked how her transportation works out, given that they live so far away. "We were able to have my cousin come with my wife and provide for transportation," Arnulfo tells us. We have been amazed at how God continues to provide for all of Annie's needs throughout her healing and you have been a great part of it! Photo of Annie

We were surprised to see Annie out and about already! She was in the playroom playing video games with Aldrin, and didn’t show a trace of pain on her face. Her big surgery yesterday was long and grueling, so her happy, pain free mood can only be explained by her huge prayer backing! Thank you all for praying for Annie’s recovery! Photo of Annie

You know it's going to be a big surgery when almost the entire OR is filled with devices including a C-arm, hammer, screws, and rods. The table is sanitized with materials in all shapes and sizes. Sweet Annie was already asleep as we got ourselves ready, armed with prayer. With her tiny legs, we couldn't apply our usual technique, so we went old school with a simple rod on each leg that will keep her bones together as it heals straight. It worked just as fine, but a longer process to go through in surgery. Thankfully, all of that is now over. Annie is in recovery with a smile on her face, hoping for the good days ahead!

Since Annie’s hometown is eight hours away from the hospital, it’s a good thing that she loves to travel! We met her and Arnulfo at a mobile clinic to let them know that God loves people with physical deformities! Annie has mixed feelings about the surgery tomorrow–nervous and excited! But we told her that even if she’s far away from home, people from all over the world are praying for her as well! Photo of Annie
