Our nurse Lemma personally brought Aliyah to FOCOS Hospital in Accra, Ghana early this month. (Read her story here.)
In addition to her z-shaped spinal deformity and NF (neurofibromatosis), she was also found to have Cor tritriatum – an extra heart atrium!
She has been in traction for over 2 weeks now. She is stable and doing well.
We’re hopeful that she will start to improve.
She is not fully funded, and our matching grant is still in place. We need your help– please donate today!
Thanks so much for your help,
Dr. Rick and the JDC-Ethiopia spine team
