Mead Minutes: More than a birthday
Birthdays are a time to have fun, but for me J-Vie is celebrating more than another birthday. J-Vie is celebrating how God has used CURE International to change his life and give him hope. I have been allowed to participate in J-Vie’s life journey. J-Vie is a special young man who has the potential to perform great works.

“My uncle is a tour guide for the giraffe park, and one day he brought a group from CURE back to our village. Josh, who works at CURE, took a picture of my leg and gave me money for transportation to the hospital. When I came to the hospital I saw other children who had […]

“I was nine when I got sick. I came home from school early and went to bed, and in the morning, I couldn’t get up. My leg swelled so much that it split open. My parents took me to a traditional healer. He ground bark from trees and told me to put the bark in […]
Tebow CURE Hospital’s 500th patient—or should we say patients!
Twins are used to sharing. Birthdays, clothing, secrets, and very special bonds that no one else can truly understand. In the case of Jea and Janna, they also share a surgery day! Mom, Juliet, tells us that she isn’t sure who was born first, and we aren’t sure who was technically admitted first, so we’ll just honor them both. Besides, who can choose between these two sweet faces?
“She wasn’t born with these legs. It started when she was two years old. I heard about CURE from someone who brought his son here and received treatment. When they came back home, I asked to see him. He had deformed legs too. His grandmother told me, ‘If you go to that hospital, everything that […]
Mead Minutes: Remembering kids are kids
As I am allowed to work with children around the world, I am struck more by the similarities than the differences. The joy in the faces of the families and kids, as the casts come off and they see the changes before them, echoes around the CURE network. The struggles the families face as they seek help for their disabled child are shared throughout underserved areas.

A garbage city on a hill
Disability is hard. It’s hard everywhere, but especially so in the places CURE serves. For Saber and Nermeen, in the context of dealing with the daily hardship of living in Garbage City, disability was a new variety of suffering they did not expect to encounter.
Mead Minutes: Challenging orthopedic cases
J-vie is another young guy who joined us at clinic. He had trouble moving and walked with a hesitant, squatting gait. He often had his hands on the ground for balance. As J-vie stood his patellae (kneecaps) faced to the sides, his knees curved out and the legs bowed front toward back. When you laid him down and turned the kneecaps forward his legs drifted way out to the side.
