5-Year-Old Girl Gets New Start in Life Thanks to Tim Tebow’s CURE Hospital

April 05, 2018

Thanks to the former football player and now baseball player Tim Tebow’s CURE Hospital in the Philippines, a little girl’s life is now back to normal.


When little Jocy was nearly two years old, a house fire almost took her life. She was left with severe burns to her back and arms that left her disfigured and deformed after under-equipped medics couldn’t do much to help her burns.



Her burns turned into hardened scars that morphed her shoulders and arms into one piece of flesh. A normal life was impossible for Jocy as she could not play or go to school.


“I prayed every night and I prayed she would have surgery, so she could go to school,” said Jocy’s mother. “For three years she had those arms. I felt really bad because we couldn't pay for the surgery.”



After a charity worker connected Jocy and her family with Tim Tebow’s CURE hospital, doctors were able to take a look at Jocy and her condition. After a successful surgery, Jocy can now use both of her arms and can live the life of a normal 5-year-old girl.


Tim Tebow’s CURE hospital has performed over 1,200 life-saving surgeries since its creation. The hospital staff also shares the Gospel message with their patients.


“I make it a point that I share the Gospel with them,” says CURE Children’s mentor Ella Abadesco. “I tell them Bible stories, and I assure them that they are loved by God, and God has a wonderful plan for them and that God sent Jesus Christ for them.”
