Glivec - restores life
Magua and his family live 3 hours from our hospital, but they come every month to get a checkup and to get a resupply of medicines. Magua's mom heard about our hospital and the medicine we have from another CML pt's daughter, who heard about his condition and then brought him to us. She had seen the change her mom was experiencing and wanted the same for Magua as well. Magua and his mom were overjoyed and were praising God, when I shared that his blood counts are all normal now. Magua, 12 yo, is not currently in school because he had been very sick prior to starting Glivec. He is hoping to return to school next year (Feb), but he has had some hearing difficulty and we are praying that it resolves so he can return to school.
Pray for Magua and for others in our GIPAP program who are finding their lives restored through Glivec.
