This month, we would like to share a little about a girl named MZ who has been receiving treatment in our medical home recently.
Little MZ suffered serious burns on many parts of her body as an infant. Over the past three years, her orphanage has worked very hard to help her recover. Despite repeated surgeries and extended hospitalizations, she still has areas that refuse to heal. Her orphanage contacted us to see if we could help her, and of course we said yes.
MZ has a serious wound that is impacting her right knee, making it so she is unable to straighten out her leg. Despite the pain that she is in, MZ is a strong girl. She tries to stand up by her bed and stretch out her leg, doing the various therapy exercises she needs to do each day. The burn hospital specialists have created a plan of surgeries to help heal her wounds and release the joint contractures. Both in the hospital and at home, MZ is accompanied by her special nanny 24/7 to make sure all of her needs are met.
We are both humbled and amazed by MZ’s strength and determination. She is an incredibly capable child who meets each day’s challenges with courage and a cheerful attitude. She’s a quick learner and loves engaging in games, puzzles and craft projects. Your support allows us to provide healing and nurturing to children like MZ.
