Louisville, KY (WAVE) – Saturday a party was thrown for Mosell Wakero, a teenager who traveled thousands of miles from Ethiopia to have life-altering surgery in Louisville. It was both a celebration, and a going away get together.

Mosell, a 15-year-old who previously suffered from a severe type of scoliosis, will soon be returning home after having successful surgery that straightened his spine last month.

The party was held at the home of Dr. Rolando Puno, a spine surgeon at Norton Leatherman Spine Center, who arranged for Mosell to come to the United States after hearing of his condition. Mosell had surgery, which was free, at Kosair Children’s Hospital in early August.
