Corrective Surgery

December 5, 2017 - Comments Off on Corrective Surgery

We learned that this little girl, who we had assisted in the past, was in need of  corrective surgery on various limbs.  Her parents wished to send her to the US where she had previously been treated rather than the UK where they were only prepared to deal  with one limb at a time and parents felt this would also prolong her anxiety.    After discussing with parents we agreed to support this application.
