Hi, my name is Rachel, I am the mother of 5 month old Tzvi.
The minute Zvi was born, he was rushed to the intensive care room.
I was a frightened young mother when the doctor came and told me that my baby was born without his anus.
I remember looking at him with terror and asking "What do you mean? Everyone has one! Everyone goes to the bathroom!"
And he explained to me that this organ in my baby's body did not develop, and he has no opening to discharge of feces from his body.
it was an immediate life danger, as the body accumulated all the waste inside and every day was dangerous.
Two days after Tzvi was born, he underwent complicated surgery, a surgery that temporarily created an opening in his stomach from which his body could clear.
For several days, he wasn’t allowed to eat.
I looked at my boy, his eyes looked at me pleadingly, he was hungry, but I couldn't breastfeed him!
5 months have passed, the temporal opening in the abdomen is very unpleasant to Tzvi and is starting to get dangerous.
We must fly for surgery where they will create an anus for him, like all children have.
In a way that his body functions normally, so that he can control his bowl movements.
At nights after I put Tzvi to sleep I imagine him a big boy, standing in the middle of the classroom where everyone is laughing at him and staying away from him.
And it won't be his fault! He has no control over it! he has an ostomy pouch attached to his body!
How could he play around? How could he run? He's a smart kid, he understands everything.
Imagine how humiliated he would feel when everyone laughs at him!
Please, I need this surgery to help my little boy.
He's still too young to understand, but in a few more years it would be awful for him to continue living this way!
Please help us get through this surgery and give my little Tzvi a normal life!
