Diagnosis of the child
congenital abnormalities (ear), microtia and atresia (external ear canal), dextral dull of hearing
Microtia is a congenital deformity affecting the outer ear (pinna) where the ear does not fully develop during the first trimester of pregnancy. A Microtia ear is often smaller in size, can have a peanut shaped appearance, only have a small nub or lobe present, or be completely absent at birth. Microtia is Latin for the words micro and otia, meaning “little ear.” Microtia can affect one ear (unilaterally) or both ears (bilaterally). Microtia occurs in every 1 out of 6,000 to 12,000 births. The right ear is more commonly affected. Microtia is often accompanied by Atresia.
Atresia (also known as aural atresia) is the absence or closure of the external auditory ear canal. The malformation of the middle ear bones (incus, stapes, and malleus) may be affected including the narrowing of the ear canal, known as canal stenosis. Atresia is Latin for absence of an opening.

History of the child
Elisei Samorosenko needs your support again!
The boy was born without an ear, but for his parents he is the best child in the world. But after the birth doctors found a defect of ear and acoustic meatus.
Elisei and his parents were in the hospital East Palo Alto (USA), the boy had a surgery for opening an acoustic meatus and hearing restoration. This miracle was done by our donators – together we have raised founds for necessary treatment. And now is time for the second miracle – Elisei needs an external ear reconstruction.
“Since January we have been conducting independent fundraising with the help of social networks, we also have sold our real estate; but we have collected only 58% of the amount needed to continue Elisei’s treatment. Therefore, we decided to ask you for help!” — Konstantin, Elisei’s father shares.
The cost of the external ear reconstruction is 24 715 EUR that is too expensive for Elisei’s parents…
Let’s help Elisei to hear this world!
