Soccer is 8-year-old Henry’s life. He is a huge fan of the Honduran national team and plays every chance he can get.
But just a short while ago, he had trouble even kicking a ball because of his severely bowed legs. Henry’s father recalled the struggles his son went through, “It was very complicated for him. I told him, ‘I don’t care how you look, honey, I love you.’ But I was hurting because I could see how the other children made fun of him.”
At CURE’s hospital in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, Henry had surgery that gave him a second chance to have a normal childhood. Now this once shy boy can run, ride a bicycle and, of course, play soccer like a star. “My child now has a better future,” said Henry’s father. “I know that he is going to be okay.”
