15 October 2011: Updates from Serkadis

The Ethiopian Medical Board has approved Selam’s case saying she needs treatment abroad! 
Next step: we have to find a rehabilitation doctor who is willing to sign off on her case, saying that Selam will get the rehabilitation she needs here in the US. 
Then, we have to prove that she will have things like food, shelter, funds for medical care.We are researching the long-term cost of the surgery and treatment, but the next step is actually finding a doctor wiling to help.
Once the doctor writes and signs saying she will get treatment here, we will scan the form and email it to Ethiopia so they can let us know what we’re supposed to do next.
Thanks to all the support from the community! Please email if you have information about a possible doctor who would be willing to support Selam.

In gratitude,
