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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Arjilo's Story

“My name is Arjilo. When I grow up, I want to become a doctor! I am not afraid to get casted because I want to be healed. Someday, I will be able to wear shoes!”

“My name is Arjilo. When I grow up, I want to become a doctor! I am not afraid to get casted because I want to be healed. Someday, I will be able to wear shoes!”

Arjilo is the only child to single mom Erlenda—who sees Arjilo as her pride and joy. “Arjilo may walk differently because of his clubfoot, but nothing stops him! He recites poems. He loves to sing and he can dance to any beat! He is really smart and very sharp,” Erlenda tells us.

We were privileged to meet Arjilio and Erlenda at a mobile clinic partnered with the Bethel Baptist Hospital in Malaybalay, Bukidnon. “The mobile clinic is how we were introduced with Tebow CURE and the opportunity for Arjilo’s foot to become straight again! He had a series of casting when he was seven months old at a local clinic. Each visit cost us P1000 (about $20) and it added up. When it was finally over, we couldn’t afford to buy a brace for the next step of his treatment. So his foot curved back,” Erlenda adds.

“I don’t remember how it was like the first time I got casted. But now, I am not afraid of casting. I get bullied in school and get called out by the way I walk. I don’t want that to happen anymore,” Arjilo bravely tells us.

Because of your support to Tebow CURE, we get to bring the opportunity of becoming fully healed to kids like Arjilo! At CURE, we are reminded that God is filled with second chances to those who are in need!

Look who is back to play and meet new friends in the clinic today! Arjilo was happy to have met his new friend and playmate, Lucas, whom he calls “Lucath”. After shooting some hoops, Doctor Jun advised Arjilo to do some exercises such as running and climbing to help improve the flexion of his foot! We will see him again in six months! Photo of Arjilo

Good news! Arjilo's cast came off today! He was so excited and got his foot washed right after! Arjilo stood up with his "handsome pose" to show us that his foot is finally straight. Since he was in a cast for six months, Arjilo will need to adjust back to walking with flat feet! Next stop, physical therapy and keeping himself active—which is not a problem for him! We'll see him back here in two months to keep track of his progress. Because you've played a huge part in supporting Arjilo's treatment, we get to celebrate this good news with you! Photo of Arjilo

Arjilo was back for a cast change. He upgraded from a long leg cast to a short leg cast, which should allow him to start walking with his foot flat! He spent some time in physical therapy with stretching exercises, so his muscles become slowly adjusted to move once he's cast free in a few weeks! Photo of Arjilo

Arjilo was up and about, feeling more awake today! He was watching some cartoons when we visited him. Not long after, he was discharged! Since he lives far away, he is going to stay in a nearby apartment that his Aunt has rented for them until he is completely healed! We are looking forward to seeing him back in the hospital next month for his follow-up appointment. Please continue to pray for his speedy recovery! Photo of Arjilo

"He just fell asleep!" Arjilo's Aunt Divine told us. She's currently Arjilo's caretaker, extending love and grace while Arjilo is in a little post-op pain. He's been sleeping on and off to help it all go by quicker, so when he's snoozing, we let him be. We're hoping to be able to read him all of your get-well messages soon! Hopefully, we'll catch him awake and pain-free tomorrow! Photo of Arjilo

It was Arjilo's turn in the OR bright and early this morning! Because of the effectiveness of the serial casting, his surgery was done pretty quickly! He breezed in and out of the OR and spent the entire day sleeping! Hopefully, he will have a fast recovery like the last time he was in the OR. Until then, we look forward to seeing his energetic and bubbly self! Please continue to pray for Arjilo! Photo of Arjilo

Arjilo had another cast change today to increase the amount he can bend his right foot up and down. Cast changes are no fun for him which is why he spends an ample amount of time in the playroom before and after the work. Thankfully, this is his final clinic cast change and he'll be coming in for another surgery soon! Please pray for Arjilo and his next procedure in a week! Photo of Arjilo

Arjilo stopped by for a quick adjustment on his cast! While everyone is starting school, Arjilo is currently focused on his healing until he's ready to have his cast off completely, but he has a few more steps before then. Arjilo will need to be in this same cast for two more weeks and then he'll be scheduled for another surgery. We know that this has been a long process for him and we're praying for patience as he looks forward to being clubfoot free! Photo of Arjilo

May 27, 2019

Just as expected, nothing stops Arjilo! He was hopping around in clinic today in order to get to the playroom and the exam room! As he waited, we were able to read him the get well messages that we weren't able to deliver last week (plus all the new ones)! You guys are definitely right about calling Arjilo a star because he’s rocking this entire healing process with so much joy! He also wants to say “thank you” for supporting him throughout this process! He is getting recasted today and will continue to heal at home! Photo of Arjilo

May 23, 2019

We got ready at the Nurse's station to read Arjilo's Get Well messages from many of you today when we found out that his name wasn't on the board! He slipped out late last night after getting discharged. It seems like he's back to being on-the-go and will continue to heal at home. In a few weeks, we'll see the progress on his foot and determine if he's going to be cast free! Then, Arjilo will catch up on reading all of your get well wishes! Thanks for covering him in prayers! He's almost there! Photo of Arjilo

Far from our usual on-the-go and always-on-the-move Arjilo, we found him resting and snoring in the recovery room after surgery this morning. Nurse Jalee tried to make him guess how many fingers she holding up just when he started to wake up. But his pain medicine still was making him feel a little loopy. So far, he’s doing OK back in the ward and we hope that Arjilo bounces back quickly in recovery! Photo of Arjilo

Arjilo loaded up on his favorite meal for lunch—rice! It's good that he's eating well now, since he will undergo a fast, starting tonight for his surgery tomorrow! "I'm ready!" Arjilo told us when we asked how he felt about having surgery soon! He's halfway through his healing process and we will continue to pray for him as he finishes well! Photo of Arjilo

“We’re all allowed a grumpy day sometimes!” Nurse Tzaddi told Arjilo during his cast change today. Arjilo’s characteristic grin was sorely missing today, he just wasn’t in the mood. He lightened up a little in the playroom, but overall, we think he’s about finished mentally with the whole process. The good news is, he is so close to being ready for surgery, his foot is looking amazing! Photo of Arjilo

Arjilo missed his appointment last week because of some transportation issues. This week though, Arjilo was thankful that his aunt could bring him in not only to continue with treatment but also to play with legos! Arjilo definitely has a child-like faith and joy towards his healing process. It's a privilege to be a part of his healing, so we thank you for supporting us to serve kids like Arjilo!

“I taped his casts because it’s about to come off! Nothing stops him!” Erlinda told us. Good thing he’s due for a cast change, which marks off another step to healing. Nurse Francis and Arjilo gave each other a hi-five for being so brave as he moved forward to becoming fully healed. As we approach this Easter weekend, please pray that Arjilo may know the healing touch of Christ here at Tebow CURE, which is made possible because of His sacrifice on the cross! Photo of Arjilo

"You don't need to be scared. God is with you!" said Erlinda to encourage Arjilo. And to make casting more bearable, the rest of the staff joined Arjilo in singing his favorite songs! Arjilo has a few more weeks of casting to go, please pray with us that he will continue to push through singing songs of praise as he trusts that God is the One who takes his pain away!

“Ironman is my favorite superhero, because he can fly!” Arjilo told us today as he colored in the playroom. So, if the doctor plan doesn’t pan out, at least he has a backup. We think being Ironman is a perfectly acceptable substitute! Arjilo’s one step closer to a new, improved body after today’s cast change, which he was super brave about! Photo of Arjilo

Mar 25, 2019

Arjilo met Dr. Ray Ray in clinic and he introduced himself as "Arjilo—an aspiring doctor!" His healing journey started today as he starts a series of casting. He braved through his first cast and we hope that he continues to build up courage as he goes through the following cast changes! As we provide for Arjilo's medical needs, please pray for many opportunities to share the truth of God's Word to Arjilo and his mom Erlenda! Photo of Arjilo
