Francisca is a very special 23-year old woman from Honduras. She was the unfortunate victim of severe burns to her legs as a 4-month-old that prevented their normal growth and relegated her to a life on her hands and knees. Upon hearing of our presence through radio announcements, Francisca came with her father by bus to see if there was anything that could be done for her. Everyone on the team was immediately impressed with her indomitable spirit and her ever-present smile. Arrangements were made to help correct her leg deformities and to replace them with prostheses. Francisca's spirit was infectious, everyone fell in love with her and spent many hours with her to help her dream of walking come true. Francisca is now back in Honduras and attending school. She can walk on her own, and occasionally uses a crutch to help her balance.
