We just received an update from Jenna Garber who is currently in the field, working with World Pediatric Project's orthopedic surgery team in St. Vincent!
She says on November 16:
Update from the field: Sharena, the first surgical patient of the week, stands and walks for the first time only one day after receiving a posterior spinal fusion to correct her scoliosis! The team is on schedule to complete 8 scoliosis procedures this week at Milton Cato Memorial Hospital in St. Vincent & the Grenadines!
We are SO excited by this news and thank YOU for making it possible for Sharena to walk.
