Fund rising for Damianko

Damianko was born prematurely at 28 weeks in February 2015 weighing only 2 lb and 9 ounces. He was diagnosed a year after his birth with spastic DMO- quadriparesis, which affects his ability to move and maintain balance and posture.

Damianko is currently undergoing treatment at a rehabilitation centre in Dunajska Luzna and Košice using the Vojta’s method which is a set of training techniques used to treat motor disorders. This treatment has not been fully effective as Damianko still cannot stand on his own and balance himself on his feet.

The only option now available to him is an operation using the Ulzibat Method, which is very costly but we believe that this operation will help him to at least stand and thereafter he will be gradually be taught to walk.

Thanks to the generosity and kindness of a lot of people we have so far collected €1,055. We still have shortfall of €1,700 for his operation which is scheduled for June 2018 in Kladno (Czech Republic ). We are relying on the generosity of kind people to help us raise the shortfall to help Damianko have a normal and brighter future.

Many thanks to all of you
