By wstać z wózka i już więcej na niego nie wrócić
Ends at: 13 July 2018
Spending over thirty years on a wheel chair and hear suddenly that there is a great chance to be able to move independently. It sounds like a miracle. However, it is a true story of Artur, who has been fighting for his physical fitness for years. Recently he got a chance, for which he has waited all his life and he does hope that thanks to your support he will be able to make use of it.
Artur has undergone a series of surgeries and intensive rehabilitation since he was a child. He suffers from cerebral palsy, which makes it impossible for him to walk and causes manual and coordination trouble. Stem cell transplant seems to be big hope for him, which is a population of cells that can transform into different types of mature cells, including fat cells, bone cells, cartilage cells, muscular cells and nervous cells. This gives him 99% chances to walk independently. Another hope appeared to be sensitivity and kindness of people who may help do something that has been regarded as a miracle for many years.
Nowadays Artur is able to move only while being supported by another person. This is only a substitute of what he has dreamt all his life. He moves on a wheel chair everyday. Now he has a chance to move on his feet and to get rid of a wheel chair.
For Artur’s mother the information that her only son may walk thanks to stem cells is a dream come true. After all, there is nothing more beautiful for the mother than seeing her beloved child on his feet after so many years of waiting. When she is talking about that, she is moved and says that transplant is the last chance for them. Artur’s mother would move the sky and the earth for him. So far she has done her best to teach him independence to the best possible extent.
Artur, despite his disability, has not given up his ambitions. He finished secondary school and then junior college. He got the qualification of IT specialist without major problems. He graduated with the highest grade. He also passed his driving test without difficulty. Thanks to that he is able to rid a scooter, which specially adapted for the disabled. Cars are his other passion. Once he wanted to be a car mechanic, yet his health condition prevented him from doing it. Perhaps when he stands on his feet, he will be able to deal with cars in his free time.
It is difficult quote the price which we could pay to walk independently. Artur knows this price and he has a chance to pay it with your help. Thanks to that he will be able to live not being attached to a wheelchair.
