Tonmoy, a 13-year-old boy from Dhaka, was unable to raise his arms because of burns he received as a small boy. A few years ago, ReSurge surgeons restored his functionality. Now, he is back to living the life of "a normal boy," as he puts it. When we saw him in May, he wanted to thank the doctors who helped him.
