Burn victim gets second chance in Boston

BOSTON — Her country couldn’t heal her, but a 6-year-old girl and her father have traveled 4,000 miles from Senegal to Boston for a life-changing surgery.

Six-year-old Isha Jahatay has second and third-degree burns over 40 percent of her body.

In March, a kerosene heater overturned in her Senegal home. A mattress caught on fire, and Isha was caught in the flames.

A liaison asked U.S. hospitals and 60 charities to help her.

Only one answered the call — Shriners Hospital in Boston.

7News spoke to Isha and her father via a translator. She said she is enjoying her stay in the United States and loves playing with all the toys.

However, the United States has given her so much more than toys. Shriners Hospital is doing $140,000 of pro-bono surgery on Isha.

“She’s very sad when he looks at the pictures and cry a lot,” said Isha’s father.

Isha said when she looks at the pictures she said she wants to look like how she used to look.”

She will… after up to six surgeries and nine months of recovery. Her dad will be by her side through it all, while her mom waits in Senegal.

Surgeons in Senegal did not have the tools to help Isha. Bah Ousman, an Africa Service liaison, asked dozens of U.S. hospitals to help. They all said no because of the current economy, but Shriners Hospital agreed.

“They want to give this 6-year-old an opportunity to have a life again,” said Ousman.

The Grace Children’s Foundation is raising money for the Jahatays’ room and food during her recovery. To make a donation, please visit http://www.gracechildren.org/.
