4-YEAR-OLD DENIS WITH DISABILITIES NEEDS A SPECIAL WHEELCHAIR!
Denis Sikorsky has been fighting for life and health since birth. The boy has a number of difficult diagnoses — an unbalanced chromosomal pathology and a congenital malformation of the brain.
During the first year of life, the parents noticed that their son was behind in development: he did not hold his head, did not lie on his stomach, did not pick up toys. Denis started having epileptic seizures. At 9 months, spastic tetraparesis was added to the list of diagnoses. At almost 1.5 years old, Denis underwent a surgery.
Due to a chromosomal pathology, the boy was born with extra toes, cryptorchidism. It was also necessary to remove inguinal hernias. After being treated for epilepsy, Denis began working out with physical therapy specialists, visiting a massage room, swimming pool, sensory rooms, and hippotherapy sessions.
Thanks to a systematic approach, the little patient acquires new skills and gradually catches up with his peers. Currently, Denys does not sit, crawl or walk on his own, but he is able to hold his head and gesticulate purposefully. The boy has not yet learned to speak, but he makes sounds.
The child spends a lot of time in a special chair. Denis moves exclusively in a wheelchair. Due to the wrong angle of the seat, which could not be adjusted, the boy began to develop scoliosis. According to the orthopedist, if he continue to use the usual wheelchair, the condition of the spine will worsen.
Doctors recommend the "Hoggi Zip" wheelchair. Unfortunately, its cost is unaffordable for a mother raising her son alone. Even counting that the part of the sum will be paid by the Social Protection Department. But only this stroller is perfect for a child. Without him, Denis's health will deteriorate significantly. Please help the family pay for the purchase of a wheelchair!
