How to help


Kiryusha is a very cheerful boy who is desperately fighting for every day of his special life. Literally immediately after birth, doctors revealed that he had a lot of pathologies: heart defect, on the one hand there are no pelvic bones, atresia of the anus and rectum, malformation of the urinary system, 2-sided hydronephrosis, and this is not the whole list of problems with which she "rewarded" the nature of the kid.

As they got older, alas, health problems only increased. At the age of 2 years, one kidney was removed, and a nephrostomy was installed in the second. The most terrible trials in his life took place at the age of 8, our hero suffered an ischemic stroke and craniotomy, which led to paralysis of the body on the right. A little later, a new, orphan (rare) diagnosis was suspected and confirmed - MoyaMoya's disease.

Cyril's whole life is a struggle, daily and painstaking. During his 12 years of life, Kiryusha underwent 27 heavy operations. Most importantly, in the endless confrontation of the disease, he did not lose his childlike spontaneity and boundless love for the world around him.

At the end of January 2021, Kirill and all his entourage were sincerely happy about the very good news: an MRI examination showed a positive trend! The brain was recovering well after suffering a stroke in 2016. The MRI results were immediately sent to the attending physician at the Burdenko clinic. In response, recommendations were finally received for closing the brain with a plate. The long-awaited moment has come! This means that Kirill will be able to safely move around the house and on the street, spend time playing with his peers, and cuddle with loved ones! Previously, due to fears of injuring the brain, such simple things were beyond the reach of a guy.

After negotiations with the doctor, an invoice for 368,040 rubles (137,000 hryvnias) was provided, which covers the costs of the operation, tests, and medications. Separately, it is still necessary to purchase a metal plate on order, the approximate cost of which is 12,000 hryvnia.

Unfortunately, after the good news came trouble again. Kirill became ill, his temperature rose, vomiting began, his only kidney became unbearably ill, and urine was no longer excreted from the body. The family urgently left for Kiev. Our wrestler felt very bad throughout the trip and had to take strong painkillers, which made him sick again. Mom prayed all the way for her son. Thank God they made it to the hospital!

Immediately upon arrival, Kirill was taken to the operating room. They placed a tube in his kidney to drain urine, which accumulated more than two liters during this time. Then - a second operation to install the stand.

It is still unknown when Kiryukha will be discharged from the hospital and the family will return home. But it is known for sure that they need funds to save their only son! We ask for the support of our staunch hero, who has endured so many trials in his 12 years that not every adult is able to overcome!

The family lives in the village Matveevka, Volnyansky district (the Zaporizhzhia region).
