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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Airish Yvan's Story

“I want my arm to be finally treated so I can go home, feed my dog Jackie, and go back to writing cursive!” Airish tells us.

Airish is a nine-year old boy with a bubbly personality! “I love puzzles, solving problems, and Math!” he tells us. Airish is the youngest of the family and he has an older sister named Bless, whom he loves watching cartoon programs with. He loves going on adventures and trying out new things so much––this is the reason why he found his way to Tebow CURE. “I borrowed my friend JR’s skateboard while playing one afternoon and two of my other friends, Juan and Kian, hopped on with me on the skateboard. I didn’t notice the road was on a downhill slope that I lost balance and tripped,” Airish recounts his (mis)adventure. He got home with a broken right arm and his grandmother tried to treat him with “hilot”––a traditional type of massage in the Philippines wherein the limbs are massaged and adjusted to bring the bones back into proper alignment. This did not make any difference to Airish’s arm and so the family decided to seek medical help. “The x-ray showed that his bones were fractured and he needed surgery. The doctor told us to prepare a big amount of money which we did not have at the moment. Our business was only selling tropical fish and the income wasn't steady. We were grateful when one of my former classmate told me that she knew of someone who could offer us a better treatment option,” Ruby Lyn, Airish’s mother recounts. One of our older patients, CUREkid Aldrich, and his grandmother led them right to our doors!

When asked what his dreams are in life, Airish wishes to go visit the moon someday! Contrary to the Filipino idiomatic expression “suntok sa buwan” (roughly translated as “punch in the moon”) which simply means "impossible," Airish’ healing is now made possible because of your partnership and support to kids like him! Thank you!

Look who visited us in the clinic donning a new hairstyle! “My ‘Tito’ (uncle) was the one who styled my hair, and my mom tied it in a bun!” Airish told us enthusiastically. However, his enthusiastic disposition suddenly shifted when he learned that his pins were going to be removed. The medical team comforted and assured him that it wouldn’t be as bad as he thinks. True enough, Airish’s pin was removed in no time, and although there were some tears, we are pretty proud of him for being such a tough cookie! He is now encouraged to use his arm in doing daily activities to keep his muscles from getting stiff. Airish will see us again next year, and we cannot wait to see his progress! Photo of Airish Yvan

Airish is back and taught as a hilarious life hack that he recently discovered after surgery — using his operated arm as a phone shelf while watching Youtube videos! “I missed Davao! I missed the hospital!” he told us after being away for three weeks. Not only was Airish happy about being back here but he was even happier to hear from the medical team that his arm is healing well! He will see us again in three weeks so it won't be too long that he’ll miss us! Photo of Airish Yvan

All in all, Airish’s surgery was a breeze and he was cleared to go back home where he can continue recovering! We showed him his X-ray and he was fascinated to see how the inside of his arm looks like with a pin holding his bones in place as it heals. “I can finally go home and feed my dog Jackie!” He told us happily. Before going home, Nurse Ferdie made sure to give Ruby Lyn some medication needed to manage Airish's pain while at home. Please continue to pray for his complete recovery and we cannot wait to see him again in three weeks for a follow-up! Photo of Airish Yvan

“I’m excited,” Airish told us when we asked him how he feels about going to surgery. Apparently he already did his research about how his OR experience would look like by watching Shaun the Sheep. “They put a mask on the patient and made him sleep before the surgery began,” he explained. Likewise, he underwent the same thing and the medical team started the procedure. Since his wrist didn’t heal the right way after the accident, the medical team had to break his bone again in order to reshape and correct the deformity. This can be related to our lives wherein God brings about healing through our brokenness. Ruby Lyn was so relieved to see Airish after the successful surgery. Thanks for praying!

Help us welcome our new buddy, Airish! He was admitted today and warmly welcomed in the hospital with snacks, workbook, coloring materials, and board games provided by Child Mentor Patricia. He easily warmed up as he and Patricia spent time playing card memory games wherein cards that come in pairs were laid face down randomly and they had to guess where the matching cards were. Airish’s memory was so good that he beat Patricia in that game! So far, Airish has been enjoying his time here and we pray that he will continue to feel at home as he stays with us in the next few days. Please be praying for Airish and Ruby Lyn that they will experience peace as they prepare for the surgery! Photo of Airish Yvan
