This sweet girl, Evelin, stole my heart eight years ago - spunky, brave, and super excited about her pressure garments! She was four years old and had extensive burns on her arms and abdomen that had required skin grafts and a lengthy hospital stay. We started her therapy while I was visiting Bolivia and she made a big impression on me.
I was thrilled yesterday that I was in the clinic when she walked in, EIGHT YEARS since I saw her last! She immediately ran up to our photo WALL OF LOVE and pointed herself out to me! She still wears a garment every day and is working hard to keep her skin soft and malleable as she turns into a teenager and her body begins to change. Take a look at the photos from yesterday, Evelin is 12 years old now! Of course, she stole my heart all over again and we have become what's app buddies too! I love you sweet Evelin!
Hi, I'm Cindy,
God literally set me on fire in 2001 with third degree burns on 40% of my body so that I could understand the needs and so that I would have a passion for other burn victims......Now, I travel and teach, helping care givers in developing countries around the world with practical ideas on how to offer a low cost, effective, rehabilitation program for their patients.
