HELP US TO RAISE FUNDS FOR VALENTINA BY SEPTEMBER 2022 SO SHE CAN HAVE A SURGERY IN USA IN NOVEMBER 2022.
READ VALENTINA'S STORY BELOW:
''We are the parents of a beautiful and smart girl Valentina, who is only 5 years old. Unfortunately, our girl was born prematurely at 29 weeks, and at the age of 2 she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, spastic diplegia. Spastic Diplegia sounds scary, but what is it in simple terms ... Some of you are familiar with this feeling when at night you wake up with a cramp in your leg, twisting muscles and twisting your fingers, preventing you from stepping on your foot. So this feeling is experienced by our daughter all the time. But despite this, our dear Valentina is a fighter from the first minute of her life! In addition, she has another diagnosis - epilepsy.
From the first days, when we learned about the diagnosis of our daughter, having modest financial resources, we began her rehabilitation, physiotherapy, hippotherapy, swimming pool, massage. And our daughter goes through these classes every day through work, pain and tears. A little girl cannot understand why she cannot do what her friends do; run, jump and just be a child….. Spasticity does not allow her to move normally and causes pain. Also, over time, this leads to deformation of the bones and curvature of the spine.
But our daily activities have already brought results. Valentina walks, though very badly, because spasticity turned out to be stronger than us. It causes the child pain and difficulty in walking, and at the moment, rehabilitation has ceased to give positive results.
Now we have a chance to save Valentina from spasticity forever and significantly improve her quality of life. She, like other children, will be able to run, jump, walk and do everything that her friends do. And all this is possible only if the SDR (selective dorsal resotomy) operation is performed at the St. Louis Children's Hospital in the USA. SDR is a neurosurgical operation on the spine, the essence of which is to cut part of the roots of sensitive neurons, which entails a complete cure.
The operation in America will be performed by the wonderful Dr. Park, who has been performing operations on the spinal cord of such children for more than 30 years, completely relieving them of spasticity. And the clinic staff is expecting us for surgery in November 2022. We have already received a response from the clinic that our daughter is a "good candidate for surgery", as well as a description of the results that the doctor expects after the operation. And the predictions are the best!
WE WILL GO!!! BUT.....
Only if we collect the necessary amount for the operation.
And this is our only chance to help our daughter.
Unfortunately, the amount of 100,000 euros, which includes the operation, visa, tickets and accommodation, is completely unbearable for our family, and therefore we are waiting for the permission from the Ministry of the Republic of Cyprus to raise funds for this operation. Our family is opening a fundraiser to help our daughter Valentina.
We know that many people are in great financial difficulty at the moment. But in this situation, even 1 euro is BIG for us.
If 100,000 people decide to give just 1 euro, then we can raise the funds in a matter of days.
We ask everyone's help.
Let's create a miracle together and give Valenting her childhood back, the joy of movement, the carefree days she deserves as a child!
We will be grateful for any possible help, because each of us can help in any way.
It doesn't take much to do this:
You can just like.
You can repost.
You can contribute financially.
Even the smallest help and donation will bring us closer to our dream! TO SEE HOW OUR CHILD WALKS AND SAVE HER FROM EVERYDAY PAIN.
After all, every child has a chance at childhood!
Thanks to everyone who believes and helps.
IMPOSSIBLE means only I' M POSSIBLE!!!

Good day Sorceress and Wizards. Yes, that's right, because thanks to you, a miracle will happen and my daughter and I will go to the USA for an operation. The collection is going slowly, but we will definitely make it in time. We will do everything to make Valentina's leg. . . . .
