History of the child

Unfortunately life doesn’t often turn out the way you want.

Yana was born on December 20, 2013. The girl spent ten days in intensive care. And it was the beginning of a new life.

“At 33 weeks pregnant I was told by the doctors that my daughter had a heart disease. And during the first ten days of her life all our attention was focused on the little heart of Yana.

On December 30, we were admitted to the pediatric department in a critical but stable condition. On the same day Yana was diagnosed with intrauterine pneumonia. On the 16th day of her life – with viral-bacterial meningitis.”

A month and a half the doctors were fighting for the baby’s life. After discharge mother of the girl has noticed that Yana is not able to do the things her peers normally do. The parents consulted a neurologist and did everything the doctor prescribed: massage, electrophoresis, salt warmers, took stimulant preparations. But there were no positive results. When the girl was 8 month old she had the first convulsive attack. 4 months later Yana was diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

“Yana is an active girl, who is constantly moving. My daughter needs a special multifunctional rehabilitation chair for children with cerebral palsy, which is necessary to perform essential activities of daily living such as feeding. We ask you for your help in collecting the amount of money needed to buy the rehabilitation chair!”
