It is with great joy that we share with you the updated news about the two Ethiopians, Haymanot and Samrawit, who recently arrived in Dallas to receive critical spinal surgeries by Dr. Theodore Belanger. Both underwent surgery several days ago, with incredible success.
Thirteen year old Haymanot now has a straight spine and is 4 inches taller! She looks forward to pursuing an education, and hopes to become an astronomer.
Haymanot was able to receive a simpler surgery than was originally envisioned, and his spine is now straight. He is overjoyed, and looks forward to fulfilling his dream of running a marathon!
