Kieren Prince was only 16 months old when she grabbed a mug of boiling hot tea that spilled on her face, neck and chest on May 17, 2010. Kieren’s parents are American missionaries who serve and live in the Ocean View township in Cape Town.
Kieren received the Biobrane treatment, which was an intensive ordeal to help her wounds heal easier and quicker. Her parents saw results daily and Kieren’s excruciating pain eased. By Friday, 21 May, Kieren was released from the Hospital and began a long journey of rehabilitation and many trips to Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital to meet with the specialists and nursing staff to monitor her progress.
After eight weeks of healing, the Prince family travelled to the United States for a planned visit to see family and raise funds for their missionary work. Kieren met with doctors in the United States at the burns ward at the hospital of the University of North Carolina and they were very impressed with all her treatments and progress, and said that she definitely received world-class treatment and there is nothing that they could have done better.
