11-YEAR-OLD ZHENYA WITH CP NEEDS SURGERY! OTHERWISE HE WON’T WALK!
Zhenya was born prematurely and barely survived. He spent the first days of his life in intensive care, the next 3 months - in a hospital. During the discharge of Zhenya, complex diagnoses were established: meningoencephalitis, spastic tetraparesis, atrophic syndrome, eye hypermetropia.
When the boy was 3 years old, cerebral palsy, double spastic hemiplegia with persistent movement disorders, and gross delay in psycho-motor development were added to the aforementioned list of diseases.
Now Zhenya does not walk, almost does not speak, cannot sit without restraints, eats only mashed food. Due to excessive spasticity of the muscles, his left leg is slightly shorter than the right, and the joints in the knees and lower legs are bent.
This year, Yevhen was diagnosed with subluxations of the hip joints. In order for him to be able to walk, first he needs to adjust his hip joints, and then a surgery on his knees and lower legs. The surgery involves the installation of special metal fasteners. Their cost is UAH 76,000. The mother does not have such funds, as she herself has a disability of the third level and is raising her son alone,
Zhenya, emotional and cheerful, dreams of his first independent steps! There is a long way ahead and a difficult struggle. But the Letov family believes in a miracle and hopes for your kind hearts!
