Erika suffers from severe strabismus (lazy eye) in her left eye. It is so bad she has minimal vision in that eye, so she cocks her hear when looking at things. Her eye also moves constantly do to the poor muscle control, so she is often laughed at and made fun of at school.
She had a great smile the day she heard her surgery to correct this problem will take place this coming Monday. The surgery will be done a Hogar del Ecuador. Since she lives in La Union, she and her mother will spend a couple days at the Emaus House here in Cuenca.
Our thanks to Derrylyn Churchwell for bringing this young lady to our attention and to Dr Rene Cabrera for performing the surgery.
This is one happy young lady thanks to all our HKIE supporters.
