Now, we’re thrilled to have an update on how Renelson has been doing since he returned home.
True to his fighting spirit, Renelson was not about to waste time when he got home in April. He was determined to go back to school as quickly as possible, so he could catch up on the time he missed. After his three-month stay at the hospital and much longer illness, many of Renelson’s friends thought they would never see him again. So, when he arrived back at school on the first day, his friends and classmates were thrilled to see him. So thrilled that they leaped to their feet and cheered his return!
A few weeks later, Renelson showed his determination and resilience again by acing his end-of-year exams. He has worked so hard that he’s on track to finish secondary school on time, despite having missed over half of the last school year.
Looking back on his experiences, Renelson remembers how much he suffered as his throat was slowly closing up. After having been so sick with tuberculosis, he thought he would never recover.
