Britney did not undergo surgery on her leg.

We just received an important update from our medical partner that Britney was admitted to the hospital for her treatment and stayed in the hospital for 4 days waiting for the result of her tests and an xray. Upon receiving the reports, her doctor consulted with other experts and determined that the operation would be both difficult and possibly not yield the desired results due to coxa magna (asymmetrical enlargement and deformation of the femoral head and neck.) They decided to it would be best to cancel her case at this point. Britney had high expectations of surgery, and when it was cancelled, she was disappointed. She has been able to undergo counseling with the doctors and other support staff, and we have shared our support with her for a healthy and happier journey ahead.

Meet Britney, a 14-year-old girl from a village in Meru County. Britney likes socializing and playing handball. She aspires to become a doctor in future to help patients who are going through tough times in the hospital. Britney is the second born in a family of three children. Her father is a small businessman while her mother is a farmer.

While playing with a few other girls, Britney slipped in the field and injured her left foot. She has been to different hospitals for x-rays and seeking treatment, but her condition has been worsening. It affects her mobility and is causing her to feel pain anytime she walks. Britney cannot stand for long and doing household duties is also a challenge for her now.

Surgery will be of great impact as she will be able to walk without any challenge and the pain which she has been feeling whenever she walks, will be alleviated.

“I want my foot to be corrected so that I can walk well like other girls,” Britney told us.
