SAVE JULKAS LEGS FROM AMPUTATION

Update posted by Kasia Zajfert On Oct 06, 2015

To all of you who contributed to Julka?s surgery via this website ? many thanks for your donations. Although the fundraising for Julka on this particular site was not highly successful, the money was being raised via many other channels and the necessary amount has been reached.

Julka had her surgery in the States on 27 May 2015. She is still in West Palm Beach, undergoing rehabilitation. Her legs are in metal fixators but the lengthening has been satisfactory so far and they should be removed in a month or two. Meanwhile, despite some initial problems (inevitable infections and pain after the surgery) she is doing an amazing progress. She is being very strong and cooperative doing exercises. And she enjoys walking so much. Yes, walking, because despite the extra weight on her legs (the metal fixators) she does walk! I would like to share this video dated 12 September 2015 with you to thank you again for your contribution.


We continue raising funds for Julka's rehabilitation.

Here is a little update on the situation of this project. Taking advantage of my holidays in Poland, I went to see Julka and her mum in Lubartow. They are both amazing: Juilka is a lovely, joyful girl, full of energy. I saw her climbing the stairs and trying to stand up despite her handicap. I tried to take a photo but she was all the time on the move! Her mum is strong, very calm and... she starts to believe that together we can make it. 

 

The month of July was marked by Julka's first birthday which was an occasion for extra donations.

 

The city of Lubartow (around 20 000 inhabitants) is truly living this story and both the city administration and the  city inhabitants help a lot. Numerous events, where the money was raised for Julka, were organised throughout the summer: concerts, sport events, picnics. A Polish long-distance runner Piotr Kurylo made a stop for Julka in his run Augustow-Athens and Stanislaw Soyka gave a concert. However, the financial resournces of the city inhabitants are not infinite: every family there has already made a donation for Julka and more money is still needed.

 

By the end of August, Julka's foundation account reached the amount of 63 000 EUR. Over 170 000 EUR is still needed. Thank you for your help so far, please disseminate this project among your friends.

It only takes a small donation from a large number to people to make this work and to help Julka to walk.

It takes only seconds and it will change Julka's life. We all believe she will be walking, running and dancing like any other kid. Kisses for Julka
