Patient Stories

As'ad's Journey

This year, through our International Children’s Program, we met a brave 10 year-old Nigerian, As’ad Kashim, who was born with Cerebral Palsy (CP), a condition marked by impaired muscle coordination and/or other impairments. His muscles were so constricted he could only squat like a baseball catcher and hobble about. His mom, Sha’awa, searched feverishly—but fruitlessly—in Africa, India, and Saudi Arabia for someone to help him walk. Without an appointment, but with a lot of hope, the Kashim family arrived in our lobby.
Following a thorough assessment and discussions with the family, Dr. Scaduto, assisted by surgical resident Dr. Allis, performed six hours of surgery on As’ad’s ankles, hamstrings, and knees. Once As’ad’s post-operative casts and braces were removed, he began extensive physical therapy, which he continues to participate in today, seeing continual improvement.

Ian's Journey

Ian is a 5-year-old who was born with fibrosarcoma (a cancerous tumor) in his leg. He underwent chemotherapy at the age of 1 month. Before his second birthday he was declared cancer-free, however, the tumor left his leg permanently paralyzed. Thanks to a news story about OIC’s work that aired on Univision in Chicago, a family member encouraged Ian’s parents to seek care for him through our International Children’s Program. In October 2016, our bone tumor specialist and surgeon Dr. Nick Bernthal amputated the lower half of Ian’s leg to give him the chance to walk. Thanks to our donors, Ian was fitted with a state-of-the-art prosthesis. He is undergoing extensive physical therapy, which will allow him to lead a more active life.
