My little brother Jure has been suffering from heart disease ever since he was born in 2009. He has had two heart surgeries before the age of 1. The surgeries that he needed were so complex and complicated, that sadly none of our doctors were able to perform on a child. Luckily we were able to contact dr. Mishaly from Israel, who came to Ljubljana to perform the surgery. He had done a very good job an we are still very thankful for his help.
At the age of 5, Jure has been diagnosed with minor cerebral palsy, Tourette's and Asperger syndrome and a tics disorder. He has trouble speaking, reading, he can't do math etc. Because of that he is going to a special school for children with special needs.
Other than that, he is pretty healthy, energetic, kind and full of imagination. We thought our troubles were over until about a month ago when he started having what we thougt were minor epileptic seizures. We took him to a neurologist and they diagnosed him with epilepsy. They said it's best for him to start getting treatment so his condition doen't get even worse, but it's quite expensive and we really can't afford it.
To make things worse, our stepdad had torn his achilles tendon and has to go through surgery that we also can't afford. We are really in quite a bad situation right now because we are living off my mom's minimum wage salary.
The money we raise will be used to pay Jure's medical treatment and for our stepdad's surgery.
We hope you can help us. Any amount will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you sincerely in advance for your generous donations!
