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.

A giver himself, even at such a young age, As’ad has inspired others with his tenacity of spirit by sharing his amazing story with OIC supporters. He has continued his journey of faith and recovery by walking across a dance floor, surrounded by 170 cheering guests, and has spoken at multiple OIC events, expressing his gratitude for our donors’ “support to cover the cost of” his care.

As’ad also volunteers at an orphanage, reading to children with CP. He is the true definition of courage, determination, and selflessness – a great spirit who now has the opportunity to bring his special gifts to the world more fully and easily, thanks to our OIC family.

YVONNE'S JOURNEY

Every mother wants to give birth to a healthy baby. But what if your baby isn’t born that way? What if doctors tell you that, because the bones of your newborn’s lower legs will never grow, your baby girl will never, ever walk?

Yvonne was one of those babies. She was born with a congenital condition in her lower legs. From birth, the bones below her knees did not grow. Her mother was told that her baby girl would never, ever walk.

With the love and determination that only a mother knows, Mom refused to give up hope for her child. She found Orthopaedic Institute for Children (OIC), and Yvonne became Dr. Anthony Scaduto’s patient.

“The first day I saw her, I knew she would walk if she received the right care and the right treatment,” says Dr. Scaduto, OIC’s President and CEO.

He explained to her mother that her little girl needed to have surgery that would amputate both legs above the knee. Because once that was done, Yvonne could be fitted for prosthetics. And with prosthetics, she would be able to walk for the rest of her life.

“Yvonne is a sparkling child, full of energy, life and always in motion,” says Dr. Scaduto. “I am humbled by her bold spirit, and so grateful to be able to contribute to improving the quality of her life.”
