You are pregnant and all you hear is that your baby will be healthy. Then, after childbirth, a doctor tells you that your infant doesn’t have two big bones and a finger in one of the hands. In the XXI century… shock? What’s more, there are also problems with weak immunity and kidneys. A lot of misfortune for our adored baby. In January,Sara, thanks to the support of many donors, went through the first hand’s operation by dr Paley who is a specialist of the most difficult children’s cases. Now, it is time to undergo the second surgery. We don’t have much time… Once more, we ask for your help.
You’ve been waiting for this special moment for so many months. You imagine your first days, weeks, months together knowing that your life will be turned upside down. You will be a father.There is nothing more masculine and responsible for you. That little, vulnerable baby will be fully dependent on you. You’re waiting and thinking that you are prepared for everything, but then, in only one moment, everything falls apart.
Your baby daughter is born and it turns out that it is not good. Right arm looks different, it is too short. You love her in the same way, but you realise that for your baby it will be a disaster. When she goes to school, everyone will point at her, noticing her difference. All the simplest activities like dressing or bathing will become a challenge.
Unfortunately, the right arm isn’t the only problem. Sara was born with anasto-vaginal fistula. Just read the name of this disease… Complicated, right? It is a very serious disease. Weak immunity and problems with kidneys don’t let us go outside, which is why almost all rehabilitation exercises take place at home. We work on the fitness of our daughter every single day. She’s only 2, but she has already suffered so much.
Your heart is broken when you have to show how hard is your daughter’s life. You don’t want to remember all these images when she is crying because of unbearable pain or when she has a heplock in her neck and the second one in her leg. Pictures, when she is lying in the hospital bed, not at home. We show you all these heartbreaking photos of our daughter because we need to beg for your help….
Dr Paley, a world-famous specialist in children’s hands described Sara’s defect as hard and complex, because she doesn’t have a movable elbow and her thumb is missing. The complicated operation of launching the elbow and straightening her arm took place in January, 2019. Unfortunately, after the surgery there were complications in the form of skin necrosis. Doctors said that it could be necessary to do a transplant, but they were fighting bravely and they cleaned Sara’s skin. As a result, the transplant won’t be necessary.
The wire from Sara’s arm is already pulled out. We’ve started daily rehabilitation. Now, we are raising money for the second surgery. Thanks to this operation index finger will be in place of the thumb, which will make it possible for Sara to use the most important hand function – the grip. Unfortunately, the surgery costs a lot of money, so once more we need to ask You for help.
Operation will take place on the 3rd of September, but we have to pay for it a month earlier. Sara was very strong and brave during the first surgery and rehabilitation. We must not miss it. The fight for her health and future is still going on. Please be with us, be with our daughter, Sara. What we want most in the whole world is our daughter’s right arm to be healthy…
