Brain hemorrhage, which occurred at 1 week of life, deprived David of a healthy happy childhood. The boy was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, but his family doesn't complain and bravely go through all stages of treatment. David is a very strong boy and shows good results from rehabilitation, but he needs help!

David was born at 30 weeks of pregnancy with a weight of only 1350 grams and a height of 40 cm. The reason for this was the diagnosis of boy's mother – cancer. From the first day of his life, the tiny baby was wrapped not in his mother's arms, but in numerous tubes and sensors... David spent a month in intensive care, then another month in the second stage of care in OKHMADIT. During this time, the boy's mother underwent chemotherapy. When David's mother ran out of treatment and the boy was discharged home, the family hoped that the terrible months of hospitals were over, they would all be together now, but it was just beginning.

A lot of doctors, different diagnoses, and the worst was when David was 5 months old: "Here I see the first signs of cerebral palsy", said the doctor. The parents hoped that the diagnosis was wrong, but when the boy was 6 months old doctors confirmed it. The family immediately began boy’s treating. David has completed 4 courses of Bobath and Vojta therapy, has daily classes at home with a rehabilitation specialist, which alternates with rehabilitation centers. Parents also sought the help of a speech therapist and psychologist several times a week, in addition to the pool and hippotherapy. Every free minute between classes, parents are engaged with David on their own.

During their treatment, they visited many centers, and one gives David the best results – the Olinek Intensive Care Center in Warsaw (Poland).

"Every time our smart boy comes from there with maximum improvements, after the last trip I saw his first more or less free, unrestrained steps, more concentrated and purposeful movements of the handles", says David's mother.

For a good result he needs at least 3-4 courses of rehabilitation a year. This year, David has already been to the Olinek Intensive Care Center twice. The family is planning a third trip in December, but the parents are unable to pay for this rehabilitation on their own, so they ask caring people for help.

David is a very strong and intelligent boy, various experts expect good treatment prospects. David's family asks for help in the desperate struggle for the boy's health, because they can no longer cope on their own.
