Sebastien Needs Surgery Outside of Haiti but we need your help to find a doctor!
Sebastien just turned 10 years old. Sebastien was living at an orphanage in Leogane where his mother had placed him because she could not care for him. An American adoption agency director called me to ask about where they could get surgery for Sebastien. I told her and Sebastien went for his bilateral club foot repair.
The orphanage where he was staying was overwhelmed after his surgery with his post-operative care and after a few weeks of stress, they transferred him to us. That was almost 2 years ago that his first surgery took place. He had this surgery in a hospital in Haiti and we were so hoping that this would allow him to have normal looking feet. His wish was to be like the other boys and be able to run and play alongside of them!
It has been a long two years and his feet still are not straight! He has now had multiple casts, braces, and surgeries and he needs more! We are wanting to send him outside of Haiti for the next surgery. We feel he has a better chance of a successful outcome.
We need help to get him the next surgery. Does anyone know of an orthopedic surgeon who might be willing to donate his services to help Sebastien? The surgeon would need to be able to get his hospital to donate the surgical facility, anesthesia, medication needed, etc.
I know there are doctors and hospitals in the States who will do this. It is just being able to find them. If you know of a doctor who is willing to help, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do not have any contact with doctors, would you please pray for Sebastien and that a doctor will be found soon?
