Hey, my name is Jakub and I was unexpectedly born in 23 weeks. My mum Anita would like to share my story with you.
On the day when Jakub was born our life changed completely. He was fighting for his life straight in the first minutes of his life. It was a huge shock for all of us. He was so small and weight only 650 grams. I could easily hold him with just one hand.
Jakub has two brain haemorrhage in the first two days of his life which damaged his brain irreversibly. He also had a necrotising enterocolitis with stoma. During his stay in hospital which was very long 155 days (5 months) he had sepsis which he recover well. Everyday we were frighten about his life. Due to being in incubator for a long time Jakub ended up with visual impairment. He had a few laser treatment which did not help much. It was another fight for his vision. Jakub now can see in black and white from about 20 cm distance. He has to wear very strong glasses.
Unfortunately he will have to have another eye surgery in the future.
Our son suffers from epilepsy and he had a few seizures. He always was very strong and a brave child.
Jakub is now 4 year old happy boy. In his short life he was diagnosed with severe developmental delay. His smile brightens our every day. We love him so much and could not leave without him. Jakub cannot walk but he is very keen to try. He would like to be like other children and be able to play with them. He's currant physiotherapy is not enough. Jakub needs more intensive rehabilitation which is very expensive and we cannot afford it.
We would like to ask all the family, friends and all people with good heart for a donation for our son Jakub's professional rehabilitation. Every penny is value. We will be so grateful for any donation. We could provide updates about Jakub's progress for people who would like to know.
Jakub's parents Anita and Kamil and older brothers Kacper and Patryk
