Rosana, mother of Moher

by on Monday, February 27, 2017 at 2:48 pm

“Moher fell out of a Manzanita tree on December 29 and broke his arm. At first, I took him in for traditional massage, but all they could do was treat it with herbs. I knew there was more to his injury, so I took him to the local hospital. They wanted a lot of money […]

“Before, I worked at another hospital, and I was knocked because of my faith. Here it is a different environment, CURE really values people and they appreciate the work that’s done. We start each day with devotions, which encourages the workers. It inspires me to serve as Jesus did, serving others, and not myself.”

“The thing that inspires me to work is the CCTV camera! Also, we are valued as people at CURE, not just expendable workers. In over 8 years of nursing, this is the first time I’ve felt like work is not ‘work’. I wake up and don’t feel heavy. I like being a part of the […]


Called to serve: The struggle is real

by on Tuesday, November 1, 2016 at 8:16 pm

I don’t know about my other CURE U friends, so I’ll speak for myself when I say that sometimes it’s really, really hard to feel like I’m making an impact as a college student. When I returned to the States, I was legitimately miserable. I desperately missed the scorching heat of Malawi: the blazing sun reflecting off […]

The voice Cherilyn found

The first two times I asked Cherilyn what happened on the day she broke her leg, she told me she didn’t really remember. Her face showed some of the emotions she probably didn’t want to feel: fear, anxiety, sadness, loss. Cherilyn didn’t just break her leg in a motorcycle accident one day. She and her mom had been out shopping that afternoon, and her mom decided she didn’t want to take public transportation home.

“The road of nursing is not smooth sailing. There are bumps and detours, and sometimes I have wanted to quit. Sometimes people treat nurses like a slave or maid, and if something goes wrong, the nurse is blamed. At CURE, that culture is lessened; everything is checked and investigated. I like CURE’s environment that allows […]

“Here are some of the things that I like… I like bubbles. I like Fluffy (her stuffed Zebra). And I like swimming!”

“The most rewarding thing for me is seeing a patient for the first time, and then seeing them again when they are fully able. They’re happy because they’re walking on straight legs. Even though I’m not the one that makes it happen, seeing what CURE does really inspires me.”

“I want to wear Frozen sandals, preferably the ones with high heels.”
