The doctors told Adriana nothing could be done but amputate her leg


Adriana knew something wasn’t right when the lump appeared on her knee. But as the lump continued to grow, eventually surpassing the size of a cantaloupe, she felt desperate. Walking became nearly impossible, and the pain was severe.

Her family, living in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico, lacked any sort of economic opportunities. They worked as subsistence farmers, and certainly had no extra money to pay for a doctor, much less a surgeon. What was she supposed to do?

Adriana sought help at a local government hospital, but the doctors there said nothing could be done short of amputating the leg entirely. Not willing to accept that this was her only option, Adriana had one last hope of getting help.

She walked into a medical mission hospital in Samachique, where a team of orthopedic and vascular surgeons examined her case. Mexico Medical Missions, the Christian organization that runs the hospital, receives high-quality medicines and other health supplies from MAP International.

Thanks to MAP-supplied items and the compassionate treatment of the hospital’s surgical team, Adriana got her miracle. The surgeons were able to remove the tumor and save her leg, praise the Lord!

When Adriana left the hospital, she went home with both legs, and hope for full healing.
