Jane received bone transport surgery to address a tibia fracture.

The operation was a success!

Jane’s doctors expect her to make a full recovery after the long bone transporting period. “The antibiotics given have prevented the risk of severe infection and amputation. Jane will be able to pursue her dreams of becoming a nurse soon,” her doctors tell us.

“Thank you for your support. I plan on joining nursing school as soon as I am recovered and can secure the fees,” says Jane. “I will always remember your kindness.”

“I had planned on attending nursing school this year, before the accident happened. I hope to still fulfill my dream and become a nurse one day,” says Jane.

Say hello to Jane, a 21-year-old woman from Kenya with a right tibia fracture. “Earlier this year, Jane was in an accident that left her unable to walk without support. Since then, she has already undergone four surgeries but is now in need of a bone transport,” our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, tells us.

Jane is the ninth child in a family of ten. Although none of her older siblings are employed, they have seen each other through school and always ensured that they had their basic needs met.
