ROMAC patient Vinna, who is currently being treated by Dr. Richard Willoughby in Hamilton, has completed her first round of surgery with flying colors.
She had surgery on her leg on Tuesday, July 11th and had a Taylor Spatial Frame fitted to stabilise the leg. She returns home to her host family on Friday, July 14th and has gone from strength to strength ever since. Treatment for managing infection is underway for the next six weeks and this is managed at home by super nurse Margaret - who is Vinna's host mother. Vinna will undergo a second round of surgery at the end of August. Margaret and Bruno's children Milannia and Alonzo have been a great support for Vinna.
Vinna forever has a smile on her face and is a very strong young girl. Dr. Richard Willoughby is confident that she will walk again following further surgery.
Don Shirley and Hamilton East Rotary Club are hosts and ROMAC is grateful for their ongoing support as well as the support from Colin Sanderson.
