Mercy Ships Helps Fulfill Marie Madeleine's Dream of Walking

For years, Marie Madeleine's hyperextended knee made walking a challenge. She dreamed of walking through life step by step with her friends. Her family didn't give up hope that her dream would one day be possible... and a free surgery with Mercy Ships in the port of Dakar in Senegal, even brought another new dream to life: "She was inspired by Mercy Ships to become a doctor," said Marie Madeleine's grandmother. "She wants to be a doctor to help people like she was helped."
