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 Blissy. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Blissy. When you give a gift through Blissy'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 Blissy. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Blissy's Story

“During my ultrasound, I was told that Blissy had a long leg, but when Blissy was born, we saw that her other leg is shorter. It was hard to see her that way, but we received her for she’s a blessing to us, which is the reason we call her “Blissy,” shares Blissy’s mom, Rowena.

Fibular hemimelia is a very rare disorder that causes leg discrepancies in a child’s limb. It has affected Blissy’s mobility since she started walking when she turned a year old. As complicated as it may seem to grow up with a leg deformity, Blissy didn’t allow her disability to hide her fun and loving personality.

“Blissy gives us lots of kisses and hugs. Drawing is one of her favorite past times. She loves to dance too! She’s so close to her dad, Dandil. She even tries to feed him at times!” Rowena tells us some of her favorite things about Blissy.

“She likes to joke around and I just love seeing her laugh and smile. Although she doesn’t like it when people look at her leg and talk about it, she’s so sweet and respectful,” adds Dandil.

Rowena expresses her hopes for Blissy and says, “It’s hard for me to watch my child walk, which is why we are happy to have the opportunity and eventually see her walk with a prosthesis. I hope for Blissy to be able to finish school. Right now, she’s still our baby and we want to give her all the attention that she needs including this healing.”

Because of your continuous support, we are able to offer sustainable help for Blissy and her family as she starts her journey with CURE Philippines!

Steve from the Tim Tebow Foundation joined us today during clinic, and was hanging out in Timmy’s Playroom with the kids! Blissy was interested and intrigued by him, but made sure to keep her distance. She wanted to keep her distance from Dr. Shelley as well, and wasn’t happy when she poked and prodded at her leg, but the good news is she’s healing really well. She’ll come back soon for another follow up, but for now, it’s a waiting game for her to be healed and strong enough for her prosthetic. Please pray for patience while she and her family await the next step in her healing! Photo of Blissy

Blissy had a great morning! She had a nice full belly so she was in a much better mood, and she gets to go home today! We had some visitors who prayed for our ward patients, and handed out necklaces and bracelets. She was a little unsure about the necklace at first, but after prayer, she decided it was pretty cool after all! She’ll get to wear it on her journey home, and we’re thankful to all of you who are joining her through your prayers and thoughts! Photo of Blissy

Rowena was with Blissy down in the OR for pre-op this morning and she told us that Blissy was "hangry." Thankfully, she was first in line for surgery this morning. Dr. Shelley intricately measured her leg and marked it with a surgical pen for her new stump. She didn't lose that much leg length and has enough cushion to be comfortable for her prosthesis in the near future. Blissy's stump was the tiniest that we've ever seen and we will continue to pray for its healing! Photo of Blissy

“We went to two of Tebow CURE’s mobile clinics. The first one, Blissy was referred for amputation but we couldn’t decide then. And a year later, there was another mobile clinic near our town. When the second opportunity came, we decided to do so. It is for her own good after all,” Rowena tells us. Leg amputation is never an easy decision to make. So we spent some time hanging out with Blissy as she checks out the mark on her leg. Because of your help, we are able to host a mobile clinic where we met Blissy and her family close to her hometown. And as they go through this process, we ask that you pray for Blissy and her family! Photo of Blissy
