The expectant mother was pregnant with twins. Two girls, two sisters – happiness. However, the news, which knocked the earth out from under the woman’s feet, was the antithesis of happiness: one of the girls died in the womb. An emergency cesarean section, at least to save the second daughter... Ania survived. Thank God Ania survived!
However, the doctor shocked the already worried mother: Aiya has congenital hydrocephalus, the girl is worried about respiratory disorders, she has a syndrome of motor disorders and leukomacia. With such diagnoses, the baby was in the department of premature and pathology of the newborn. Subsequently, doctors diagnosed new diseases: cerebral palsy and a delay in statokinetic and psycho-speech development. Ania's treatment began when the girl was 3 months old.
Now Ania is a little less than 5 years old, but she still does not know what her peers do with ease. However, there is progress in the girl’s condition: Ania’s vocabulary has increased, the girl distinguishes colors, objects and forms better, spasticity has decreased in her legs, she already controls her body better, her back muscles and arms are much stronger. In general, the girl became more attentive, focused and interested in the world around her.
In order to maintain progress and dynamics, Ania needs to undergo systematic treatment. However, the financial condition of the family is extremely difficult. Therefore, we urge everyone to support Ania and help her go to a new course of treatment.
