A New Leg For Grace

Update posted by Zha Malana On Feb 08, 2019

Hi everyone! Just a quick update regarding MG's progress.

Good news, MG has been cleared to go out of the hospital last January 30. We just go to her doctors to have her wounds checked and dressed every week. Although her sensations haven't fully returned yet, she can now move and suspend (for some time) her ankle. We were also advised to postpone contact with a physical therapist since her wounds aren't healed yet. She's really motivated to exercise on her own, though! We're hopeful that she'll regain her mobility and sensations soon.

Again, thank you everyone for sending us your well wishes and support.

Here's a picture of her and her new leg.

Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates - so much has happened in the past few weeks:

1. We have officially ended our fundraiser as of December 31, 2018 and we have raised ₱885,128.69! Thank you so much to everyone who has spread the word about our fundraiser and donated to our cause. We are also very grateful to everyone who has reached out with their words of support, kind thoughts, and continuous prayers - you have all helped to keep us strong throughout this journey.

2. After undergoing the first surgery to treat her infection, MG has undergone the rotationplasty surgery last January 18. While the surgery seemed successful initially, Grace encountered a complication in recovery - compartment syndrome - a painful and dangerous condition wherein increased pressure in her leg led to a decrease in blood flow to her nerves and muscles. She quickly had to undergo another surgery to treat this. Currently, Grace is still unable to move her foot and has not gained back full sensation in her foot She is due to stay in the hospital for an indefinitely longer period of time as her medical team needs to monitor her recovery for any other complications that may arise.

While Grace's rotationplasty surgery has been done, our fight to get Grace to walk again doesn't end here. Grace still has a long way to go in terms of recovery and being able to walk again - we're all optimistic and hoping for the best, and we want to thank you all again for your help and support in Grace's journey.

Hi everyone! It's only been a week since we started our fundraiser. We're extremely overwhelmed with everyone’s help - from the people we haven't personally met, to our relatives and friends, our workmates and schoolmates, and our anonymous donors. We are BEYOND words of gratitude to everyone who has donated, shared our campaign, and extended their help in their own way.

Thank you is not enough but it is all we have for all your love and kindness!

As for Grace's condition, the wounds from her recent prosthesis removal surgery are healing well. Next week, she will undergo a sampling procedure to verify if her infection still persists. Once she's cleared, she can then stop with her IV antibiotics and prepare for the rotationplasty surgery.


We are humbled with everyone's support in giving my sister a chance to walk great distances again. Your support has kept our family, and most especially Grace, determined to fight as we overcome this trial.

Lastly, we would like to invite everyone to join a fundraising badminton tournament this coming Friday, November 23 at DOE Badminton Court, Multi-purpose Building . The event is open to the public and all proceeds will go directly to Grace’s surgery fund. Thank you so much to the Department of Energy and Energy Badminton Club for organizing this event!
