WE’RE WITH YOU, KYLE!
Adolf was burned at age 6 in Uganda when his aunt threw scalding hot banana leaves on the backs of his legs as punishment. He hasn’t been able to stand upright since, and often crawled around on all fours; but when the Children’s Burn Foundation was alerted to Adolf’s need, we lept at the chance to help him walk normally again.
Having arrived in Los Angeles for burn treatment just in time for his first Thanksgiving with a caring host family, Adolf had his first doctor’s appointment the first week of December. Dr. Peter Grossman of the Grossman Burn Center was hopeful that Adolf would be walking by Christmas… and walking he is! Follow these links to see the touching story, as covered by CBS, The L.A. Times and other local news:
