Faith had surgery today! Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for Faith as she had corrective surgery on her right leg. Sadly, we missed seeing her in the operating room, but we will be delighted to deliver any get-well messages to her in the ward as she recovers from surgery. The procedure went smoothly, and Mommy Sekhile is happy to see her children being helped at this hospital. Please pray for her recovery and healing journey.
Leeroy had surgery today! We are sad to miss him in the operating room, but glad we found him recovering in the ward. The procedure was successful, and his right leg was straightened and reinforced with a metal rod in his femur (thigh bone) and a plaster of paris. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for Leeroy as he recovers in this time, and feel free to send him a get-well message!
Junior's surgery went well! The doctors worked on straightening his left leg, and removed the old pins he still had from his previous surgery at CURE Zambia. The imaging machine showed an x-ray during the procedure to guide the surgeons as they inserted a metal rod to keep Juniors left leg. This is to keep his bones in position as he heals, and a plaster of Paris for protection. As he recovers in the ward over the next few days, you can send him a get-well message and we will deliver it to him and his family!
Meet Faith (Far right) and her family! They are at CURE Zimbabwe this week to receive corrective surgery. Faith is the first born in her family. She and her two younger brothers were born with a condition that makes their bones weak, causing them to bend and possibly break in their limbs. Faith is scheduled for corrective surgery, and we are thrilled to have the whole family with us at the hospital. Help us welcome them to the CURE family!
This is Leeroy. He loves to play and comes across as the clown of a family of three children, who are all at CURE Zimbabwe this week! He has a bone condition that makes his bones to be soft, causing them to bend and sometimes break. As a result, his legs are bent inward, making his knees knock together when he walks or runs. We're delighted to have Leeroy and his family at the hospital this week to receive corrective surgery. Please help us welcome Leeroy and his family to CURE Zimbabwe! https://youtu.be/zdLHlZ2sYMQ
