An Egyptian woman in a horrible accident is now able to do simple things again, like play with her daughter and open doors, thanks to the generosity of Bay Area doctors.
In 2012, Gehan Guirguis was on a bus with her family in Cairo when the driver sped down a dangerous road and crashed. One of her daughters died, and Guirguis was left with two crushed arms and a major skull injury.
This month, doctors at Stanford and nearby communities donated two prosthetic arms and have been teaching Guirguis how to use them.
They say Guirguiss case is especially rewarding because of her remarkable spirit, which comes from her deep faith in her family and God.
UC Berkeley Hires First Wikipedian-in-Residence My husband is a great man, Guirguis said through a translator. Right from the beginning, he was taking care of me, dressing the wound, bathing me, feeding me, constantly encouraging me, so that we really indeed become one together.
Her occupational therapist says Guirguis is making such good progress she might even be able to drive in the future.
For now, Guirguis is finding joy in the little things, like being able to comb her daughters hair.
A lot thats gonna do for her with out a head!
Good for them!
you know the docs can find a lot of people with strong faith right here in this country. they’re the Christian ones Barack’s “stand-with-the-muslim” government thugs are persecuting.
having faith in a pedophillic moon god whose’followers are currently beheading Christians all’over the middle east, shouldn’t cause anyone to admire them.
yeah, good for them, but how many AMERICANS would they do that for?
I don’t have a problem with charity, but it should begin at HOME.
