History of the child
Yaroslav Tumilovich is an ordinary second-grader, the only difference being that he studies at a special school: the boy has cerebral palsy.
Anna, Yaroslav’s mother, has done everything possible to help her son. The family spent 3 years visiting several rehabilitation centers in Belarus. Beyond any doubt, these efforts have yielded good results: Yaroslav can hold up his head, crawl and say “father”.
The problems with heart were like a thunderbolt from a clear sky. And now there’s no chance of recovery: operations and physical exertion are forbidden, that’s why the required treatment is impossible.
“My whole world turned upside down. I almost lost my courage, when i’ve finally understood that crying will not mend matters. All I can do is make my son happy. His favorite way of spending free time is walking”.
But the old wheelchair of the family got broken. The new one costs 1 175 USD, but it’s an immense amount of money for the small family.
