Olezhka passed a painful way of fighting for life. He was born a normal child with a minor defect that did not influence the development; the boy played, smiled, held the head, and responded to his father and mother. But unfortunately, the incompetence of Ukrainian doctors (administration of psychostimulants for accelerating the development) has led to disastrous results. Hydrocephalus (water on the brain) began to progress, Olezhka underwent a surgery during which a shunt was placed (the device that pumps fluid from the head to the body).

The operation was unsuccessful, the shunt caused a brain hemorrhage, and Olezhka had been hanging between life and death, he passed 10 days in the intensive care department. They conducted subdural hematoma puncture aspiration three times (blood was pumped out through the hole in the skull with a syringe). But the little man refused to give up; in spite of everything life has conquered death.

After all sufferings, Olezhka had been in the state of the plant for 4 months. He did not respond to the environment, did not hold the head, did not control the body. At the 5th month the body began to struggle gradually with the trouble, the response to the sounds recovered, and muscle activity appeared. But along with that painful flexor spasms came, it was a severe form of epilepsy. This disease is a slow death, it kills brain, and inhibits all life processes. Domestic doctors recommended treatment with drugs, but this treatment showed no results, and the seizures became more frequent. Unfortunately, our doctors could not help Olezhka any more, they shrugged helplessly saying that everything is on the knees of the gods.

But we did not give up; our Olezhka has fought for his life so desperately not for that. We started to look for clinics abroad. Physicians of the advanced Spanish clinic Teknon invited us for examination and promised to help us. So from 2013 to 2015 we have been selecting drugs to suppress epilepsy, and our son has been undergoing several stages of examination in Barcelona, to select the ways of treatment of epilepsy. As a result, unambiguous conclusion has been made: only brain surgery give a chance for Olezhka.

Recently a Skype conference with Dr. Russi (on his initiative) was conducted on the most effective treatment for Olezhka. We have been even a little bit afraid of what could happen. During the conference, Dr. Russi explained that after having studied all the materials of the examination of Olezhka, he concluded that in the existing situation the most effective way would be an operation of the focus of epileptic activity in the brain with electrical diodes. This operation is among the most advanced methods of treatment in the world, and the clinic has a unique experience of successful operations in children. The cost is significant, it makes 68 thousand Euro; but how can this amount be compared with the dream of a child who fought so much for a chance to recover, when at last he has got this chance.

Obviously, his parents, who spent everything they had for the previous treatment, are not able to collect the necessary sum on their own, in the face of unemployment and war in the country.

 

BUT WE ARE SURE: WE CAN HELP OLEZHKA TOGETHER WITH YOU! RESPOND, DO NOT PASS BY THE TROUBLE OF THE LITTLE BOY, HE REALLY NEEDS YOUR HELP!
