Hello! My name is Alexander Tupitskyi.
My son Sasha needs an emergency surgery.
14 years ago, when my son was born - I was the happiest man in the world, but over time, doctors have voiced to us a terrible diagnosis - cerebral palsy, and offered to send their child to an orphanage. I still don`t understand how could they offered it to parents, but it`s not the point, our son radically changed our lives. We had to give up a stable set life in Cherkassy and immediately moved to Kiev, to provide him with the best possible treatment. It took 14 years of daily exercises, massage and all the possible methods of conventional and unconventional rehabilitation. We calculated that we wound more than 200 000 km across Ukraine visiting all the centers of rehabilitation for children with cerebral palsy.
Unfortunately, this year we faced with new problem – because of the sharp increase of the muscles in adolescence period and the spasticity of certain muscle groups, his hip joint moved from its proper place. And the only possible way to solve this problem is an urgent surgery operation. If this operation wouldn`t be done in time - the consequences could be truly irreparable. In Ukraine, in the center of rehabilitation of children with cerebral palsy, professor proposed us to make 4 operations, and then the 5th one in a year later, each of which is accompanied by a severe general anesthesia (which is fraught with complications for children with cerebral palsy) and blood transfusion. I had to look for a more sparing treatment abroad. Within a few months, we collected information on various orthopedic clinics, received a lot of consultations, and finally found the best solution - surgery in the medical orthopedic clinic Schon in Munich. We can make there only 2 operation and a complex post-operative rehabilitation to solve this problem. The total amount of accounts that has exposed to us from the clinic amounts to 79,113 Euro =$ 88,607. This is not counting the additional cost of the flight, accommodation and food for the period of 44 days of staying with our child in the hospital Schon in Munich.
Sasha is a nice and fun guy, he likes box and football and studying in a special school. The biggest problem in his life – he is unable to walk and his hip is dislocated from the right place. Despite of all this problems, Sasha is full of optimism and charges the whole family with a positive outlook – and this is another reason not to give up.
The amount of money needed for this surgery operation is impossibly high for my family.
Our last hope is that the world is still full of people with a good heart, who will be able to give us any possible support in solving this serious problem. We sincerely believe, that with your help, Sasha will learn to walk unaided and a little dream of, at least, one man on the planet will come true!
We are grateful for any, even the smallest amount of money that can be save for operation.
We are grateful for share of this post!
