Thea is in the second grade at school. She has two sisters and two brothers. Thea likes to read school books and watch TV in her spare time.
Thea was born with congenital clubfoot. This is a medical condition in which the feet are twisted out of shape and position. She was treated once in a small, local hospital, but her symptoms did not improve. She has difficulty walking, and she is in pain.
Thea and her mother traveled for four hours to our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), to seek treatment. On February 15, surgeons at CSC will perform a bilateral tendoachilles lengthening procedure to correct her clubfoot. The total surgical and hospital costs will come to $304.
Let’s support Thea by helping her to walk easily again!
