ВATTENTION! AS OF 30/06/2023:: Fundraising stopped! We paid for the rehabilitation of Oleksiy. Thank you very much for your help!

Oleksiy does not have a carefree childhood. In his incomplete two years there is a struggle with the disease. Every day of his life is hard work and small victories that will make his future life more or less healthy.

During childbirth, Oleksiy survived the entanglement of the umbilical cord. Doctors resuscitated the baby, but temporary oxygen starvation left negative consequences. At six months, doctors suggested that Oleksiy had cerebral palsy, later the diagnosis was confirmed.

Because of the war, Oleksiy family left their home in the occupied village and moved to Zaporizhzhia. And after intensive shelling of the city in October 2022, the family moved on to Truskavets. There, Oleksiy began to be treated at the Kozyavkin clinic. After two rehabilitation courses, the boy already has significant achievements: he began to roll over from his back to his tummy, holds his head well and tries to crawl. And the tone in the arms and legs has decreased significantly.

Between rehabilitation sessions with specialists, Oleksiy works with his mother at home. Every day is scheduled by the minute - it starts with physical exercises and ends with them. During the day, the boy, together with his mother, draws, puts together magnetic puzzles, does various exercises for the development of fine motor skills and walks in a stroller on the street.

Parents lost their jobs, and all their savings have already been directed to the treatment of their son. The next rehabilitation, costing $ 495, is scheduled for early July. Parents are no longer able to pay for it on their own. Please, become a magician for Oleksiy and give a chance for a healthy, carefree childhood!
