The surgery

Nadia Szostak, 10 years

Chełmce, świętokrzyskie

Infantile cerebral palsy, as a consequence of perinatal hypoxia

Started: 20 June 2018
Ends: 15 December 2019

The estimate of the rehabilitation will be prepared after the surgery but now we decrease the collection sum to pay only for the procedure. We will inform you online. The surgery will be complicated because the legs’ defect is very serious – nobody else wanted to save her and nobody said that she would have a chance for walking…

In recent times her condition has worsen. We were in hospital on Sunday because she had an epileptic attack. Unfortunately, the medications work badly. She feels bad and suffers. I would like to give her  hope and say her that the surgery will be conducted in August! We have a little time left…

Doctor Paley who comes to Poland is a great chance for us. Please, help us take advantage of that opportunity…

We have an estimate for a surgery in Poland!

In August doctor Paley comes to Poland! It is an incredible opportunity for affected children because the surgeries in Poland are much more cheaper than those conducted in the USA. We found out that Nadia is on the list of children that can be operated in Poland, we have to do everything to take advantage of an opportunity!

The cost is enormous and we can’t afford it… The surgery costs about 270 000 zlotys. Additionally, we have to pay for the rehabilitation that is a condition for conducting the surgery. We don’t have an exact estimate but we suppose that the additional cost will be about 150 000 zlotys…( When we get the estimate, the collection sum will be changed).

Nadia’s case is the most difficult of all children operated in Poland and because of that doctor Paley must have our daughter in the USA to control the rehabilitation.

We have  great chance now, but if the we don’t make it on time, we will have to go to the USA and the cost will be much more higher and we won’t be able to afford it. We ask you for help for our only daughter… We just want to relieve her pain and give her a chance for normal life…

Nadia and her parents

**************

Nadia has an opportunity for surgery that can change her future and save her legs! Doctor Paley will operate in Poland in August and my daughter is already on his list, but there is one condition, I have to raise money on time. I know that I cannot do it alone and that’s why I ask you for help. If I don’t make it on time, we won’t have another chance…

Nadia’s future and health lie in your hands. We need a lot of goodness to make a surgery come through… I know about that and as a mother I ask you for help. I know how much my daughter suffered. I felt the pain when the doctors said that there was no hope for her, that we had to accept her disability, that she would be on a wheelchair forever. But we have an opportunity and we have to fight! We have to fight to the very end…

Nadia Szostak

She was born as a beautiful and healthy child – they said so. The months were passing and I was more and more worried. I saw that my daughter was walking differently, I knew that something was wrong. The doctors ignored the problem and we didn’t get the referral for the refundable treatment. We went for the private appointment and then our long journey for Nadia’s health started…It turned out very quickly that she suffered infantile cerebral palsy, spastic paresis of the lower limbs – that disease ruined her life…

The diagnosis was made when she was 18 months old. Any doctor didn’t see anything worrying before. Apart from CP she also has a vision defect, spinal meningeal cyst, neurogenic bladder, osteopenia, hiperinsulinemia, bad posture, scoliosis and other afflictions… It seems to be  a big baggage for a little child. Where does he take the strength to smile and enjoy the life from? Her confidence in cure gives us the power to fight despite all the adversities that occur. However, we know that she is upset…

She wakes up every night crying and shouting… Her legs are hurting because they  are put in clumpy orthoses which should straighten them. However, they don’t work any more. The same with those put on during the day. Nadia is aware of her disease and she knows that she cannot play with children because she is always behind them. She cannot run or go with them. We, as the parents, cannot do anything to make our daughter happy and live in a way that every child deserves it…

Nadia Szostak

Until recently Nadia moved using tripod but for 4 years her condition has worsen and walking is difficult for her because her feet defect that is developing, knee internal rotation and incorrect placement of the hips. As a consequence it can lead to a bone fracture, dislocation of the hip, atrophy and entire immobilization! If this happens our daughter will lose the chance for walking and will have to be on the wheelchair…

We fight for her life for eight years. Continuous appointments in health centres, exercises and hospital stay are our life. Nadia is our only happiness, she would like to be a doctor. This is her natural environment because she is used to that since her childhood… It is sad but at the same time moving. Despite the fact that she is so little she is very mature. It is nothing surprising because she went through a lot… We just want for her a happy childhood and nights without crying and days without shouting…

We have looked for help to Nadia for the long time. We found out in January that doctor from Paley Institute in Florida, the USA gave us hope that Nadia will walk! However, the estimate that we got brought us to the knees – it is about 700 000 zlotys! We collapsed… Where can we take this money from? However, we received the information that doctor Paley comes to Poland and can operate our daughter! We will receive the new estimate and it will be much smaller. Then, we will change the collection sum. There is just one big problem – the time. The surgery has to be conducted in August, otherwise our chance will disappear…

Nadia Szostak

Nadia has to undergo a series of complicated surgeries that can be conducted once in the life. Because of that the surgeries must be conducted 100% right and by the surgeons who are specialized in so difficult cases and who have a great knowledge on that topic. We ask you for help for Nadia – it is her only chance for health. If we don’t take advantage of that opportunity, the pain and suffering will last forever…
