Czerwionka-Leszczyny, śląskie

Niemman & Pick type C

Started: 22 May 2020
Ends: 30 September 2020

ATC Classification System A16AX06

Maks is an atypical teenager – you could say it’s because of his unusual interest in military. But there’s also another thing that makes him different. Something that we want to get rid of, but we can’t. It’s incurable disease that Maks is fighting against. He’s fighting for every day, and not going to give but he’s slowly loosing… That’s why we want to ask for help.

Very rare and incurable Niemman & Pick type C disease put Maks’ life in danger! This fight is going on for years and it’s getting harder every day. Today his arms and legs have already refused to obey him. Communicating with him is getting harder. This disease is very similar to very well-known Alzheimer’s disease. But it’s more cruel, because it’s attacking children and taking their lives too soon.

Despite all of this Maks is fighting. He’s enjoying every moment, every day. He is  spending time with his family and hobby… His passion, and paragon of Polish soldiers are inspiring him to never give up , and looking at future with hope! Enormous military passion is powering his will to live.

Since some time Maks is having seizure. Every day, often and very tiring. Also he needs high quality nutriments to function properly. They’re helping his body to regenerate after every tiring seizure.

Maks needs consistent  care and his parents and brother’s assistance. They’re with him all the time, and constantly take care of him. They’re also very worried, if they’ll be able to afford his medicine treatment  next month. But they can’t give up for his child sake! They need to fight like Maks!

With your help we want to collect money for at least a year of treatment. Right now our brave solider is taking medicine that helps to slow down progress of disease. Thanks to that medicine Maks is more focused and communicative. Unfortunately, it’s very expensive, it costs 9 000 PLN monthly. Health care doesn’t refund this, and we can’t stop the treatment. The medicine takes 90% of the amount we need. 

Because of amplifying muscle weakness Maks needs constant and challenging rehabilitation. To make it right a special equipment is required (special bed or shoes) and constant guardianship of physioterapist. These are also enormous costs.

This fund-rising is huge chance to Maks for another year of living. By this we can help in never ending battle which his family is struggling. With your help we can defeat the hostile which is that awful disease!
