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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Aldrich's Story

“When I grow up, I want to become a police officer!” Aldrich tells us. But when asked why he wants to become a cop, he took a long pause, which only meant he hasn’t gotten that far yet!

Aldrich is an only child to his mother Alexis, who pours out all the love and care even when Aldrich gets mischievous at times. This explains Alexis’ joy when she found out from a friend that Tebow CURE can help Aldrich’s medical needs. ”Aldrich was on a motorcycle ride with his ‘Tito Papa’ (Aldrich’s endearment to Alexis’ boyfriend—a combination of uncle and dad), when they got into an accident, and Aldrich broke his leg. We went to a local hospital and got Aldrich casted, but he needs surgery. The stainless rod alone costs $240, so we can’t imagine how much the actual surgery costs.” Alexis tells us why they are here.

”Do I not have friends anymore?” Aldrich wonders as he can’t do his usual tasks like hanging out with his friends or running outside. Going to school is also on hold for Aldrich at the moment. “His teachers understand his situation and his friends come to our house to visit him, so he doesn’t get lonely,” Alexis adds.

But because of your help, we are able to provide for Aldrich’s medical needs and care for him and his family as a whole as we share the love of God through surgery. It won’t be long until Aldrich is able to stand independently, walk around school, and run with his friends again!

Aldrich is recovering well and looking great post-op! In fact, he was given the go signal by Doctor Jun for discharge. Aldrich was advised to use crutches for two weeks to aid his walking since his bones still need to grow back from where the rod was removed. He was excited to go home but before doing so, he made sure to visit the playroom where he spent his whole morning! We will see him again in two weeks! Photo of Aldrich

Aldrich stopped by the OR one last time today! He got his rod removed, which means he is at the end of his healing journey! He will need some time to recover today, but will be able to go back home and continue going to school very soon! Hopefully, we get to take a peek on his updated x-ray before we see him go, and show you how his bones have healed! Thank you so much for all of your help in making Aldrich’s healing possible!

Aldrich checked-in for his follow-up appointment. He strolled in as if he hadn't gone through a motorcycle accident earlier this year! That was a good sign that he’s healing well which was confirmed with an x-ray. Alexis (his mom) was so impressed, she took a pic of the broken bones that fused well as it continues to heal. We are so happy to know that this surgery allowed Aldrich to go back to his normal life of being childlike! We’ll see him back in 6 months for his regular check-up routine! Thanks to your support, we are able to provide for a sustainable healing for Aldrich! Photo of Aldrich

“I wish I’d broken my arm instead of my leg, then at least I could walk around!” Aldrich dramatically told us this morning. We really kind of wish he hadn’t broken anything, but we woke up to a huge pile of Get Well messages for him, so at least he has a lot of support and prayers for his recovery! We showed him his CUREkids profile, and he really liked the pictures of his surgery, if being a police officer doesn’t work out, he may have a future in medicine! For now, the most important thing in his future is to keep healing, which he’ll continue to do at home, since he was discharged today. Thanks for all the prayers and messages for Aldrich!

We can tell that Aldrich was in a lot of pain today, so his "Tito Papa" brought him up to the playroom to distract him a little. It worked for a little bit, but Aldrich's mood has been shifting depending on the amount of pain he feels. No worries though, we keep an eye on his medications round the clock. We ask that you pray for Aldrich's healing to continue well! Photo of Aldrich

Aldrich was our last surgery for the day, and it took all of Dr. Shelley’s problem solving skills to finish on a strong note. Aldrich’s knee was bent outward, while his foot was turned inward, so his bone broke in a twisted position, not an easy puzzle to solve! The table at the end of the operating table was piled high with hardware and tools, all of which helped put Aldrich’s bone back together. Please pray as he starts his recovery! Photo of Aldrich

We might have our hands full with this active dude! As we chatted with his family, Aldrich peeked out from his sheet, then when it was time to ask him questions, he’d duck underneath with a giggle, then reemerge with a grin…or a stuck out tongue. We love his spunk, and we pray that it will help in his determination to recover and regain his strength soon! Aldrich has surgery tomorrow, please pray for a successful, calm procedure!
