Story

Alex and his twin brother Max was born in March 2015 after a very difficult pregnancy. He was our little ‘miracle baby’ - that’s what nurses used to call him as throughout the whole pregnancy doctors weren’t giving us much hope for him to live past a few hours after birth. Doctors were suspecting various congenital defects including heart defect, lung failure, urinary tract failure, digestive system defects and bone defects including ribcage, scull and feet. Luckily Alex proved them wrong and he's still here almost 4 years on.

However…

There are still some issues that we need to address and unfortunately are past our abilities.

I’ve never asked for anything from anyone for my entire life but unfortunately I need to put my ‘Little Miss Proud’ sticker into the pocket and ask you to help me, help my little warrior to win one more battle in his life.

Alex was born with a condition called Clubfoot (or talipes). It is a deformity in which a baby's foot is turned inward, often so severely that the bottom of the foot faces sideways or even upward. It affects 1 in every 1000 children born in the UK. Clubfoot isn't painful for babies, but if not treated properly, the foot will remain deformed, and he or she will not be able to walk normally.

This is what happened to Alex – due to complexity of his case and all underlying conditions, his foot is still deformed at the age of 4 even though we went through the entire treatment protocol twice and seen 16 different medical professionals. We tried everything we could that is available on NHS and privately here in the UK and Europe Mainland with no luck.

Finally, we found a doctor - Matthew Dobbs - in America who does miracles for children in similar position as Alex and is willing to take on his case and hopefully fix the unfixable, but that involves a lot of money that we do not have.

The treatment will take nearly 3 months when Alex will be off his feet in a wheelchair with plastercasts, then he will have a surgery with Kirschner wires and Achilles tenotomy and more casts. When all heels he is going to wear day splints and nightime braces for at least 2 years. He will also require a lot of physiotherapy to help him back on his feet independently.

So here we are asking you amazing person to help this little man to stand straight and tall on his little feet and walk through the life he deserves.

Thank you with all my heart!
