Destin with his parents
Destin received surgery to repair muscular deformities in his hamstrings and Achilles tendons this time last year, thanks to your generous support. International Hospital for Children volunteer pediatric surgeons recently traveled back to St. Vincent and the Grenadines and had the opportunity to follow-up with past surgical patients such as Destin. Check out how happy he is in these photos, now able to walk normally!
Destin's mother also sent us a sweet, two-page note. Here is just a small excerpt:
“When Destin was little, we noticed his mobility was getting worse and worse until he was creeping around on all fours. One day during a consultation, our doctor told us about the IHC program to assist needy children and gave us the contact information for Sister Jackie King. As soon as we got in contact with Jackie, she told us not to worry, we will be well taken care of, and she meant every word. This was truly a great breakthrough after nine years of prayers and tears . . .”
Thank you for helping Destin receive the life-changing surgery he needed to live a full and productive life!
