Joan continues to make great strides working with her new braces to strengthen her legs, knees, and feet.
We love Makenzie, who encourages and stretches Joan (literally and figuratively!) She pushes Joan to the limit in the kindest way. And... she’s tough.
So is Joan!
As medical costs continue to mount, your donation is greatly appreciated.
Joan was a rockstar when she finally got her braces!
It was a lot more painful for her than we anticipated as she stood on them and took her first steps. Physical Therapy starts very soon and day by day she will improve. But just look at that straight foot!
THANK YOU to everyone who has already helped ! She’s not quite ready to go back to school but what great progress she is making.
Joan's surgery was Dec. 18th. Her initial casts were removed on Jan. 8th. They measured her for braces which will be ready on Jan. 22 when we go back to the surgeon.
They will take the second casts off on the 22nd and we will start physical therapy that week. Her feet show definite improvement and we are excited to see the difference when she starts walking again!
Joan has quite a family here in the US... Kenyans, Americans, travelers from around the country and the world!
Joan’s going to school blessed once again by WGHS and this time the Statesmen Center where she can go for independent studies and keep learning while she goes through treatment... we love this very special place!
Joan gets a little help from Lyla and Thieves Essential Oils, available at the shop.
