Amognesh Comes to Visit: A Girl Who Can Breath Again

In 2007, Amognesh, a 16 year old girl from rural Gojjam province, came to us with a terrible spine which had been destroyed by tuberculosis.

After testing, we sent her to Ghana for surgery by the FOCOS team. She did great and returned home to her village.

Last week, she came to us for a checkup.

In evaluating her breathing, we measure that she can now breath in over 3 liters of air – her lung capacity has improved 38% since before surgery!
