Kirill has recently turned 10. But lots of everyday joys which are common for boys of his age are still not available for him. He can neither ride a bike nor play football or even kick the ball… It happened so that when he was just one year old Kirill fell out of his bed and hurt his head badly. As a result, he got a huge haematoma in his brain. Kirill was operated on, the haematoma was removed, but the boy spent two weeks in coma. Unfortunately, the craniocerebral trauma had dire consequences. Kirill can now walk only when holding someone’s hand. He speaks quite poorly – only separate words. But his parents and elder brother dream of seeing Kirill healthy one day and are making every effort to achieve it.
Kirill and his mother go to rehabilitation centers twice a year and also take regular sessions in the repair center in their hometown. Although both his mom and dad work and they’ve paid for most rehabilitation courses themselves, it’s hard for them – they have to either ask their employers and friends for help or take loans. Three charitable foundations have also supported them once each – “Rosspas”, “Dobrodel” and “Pod Zvezdoi Nadezhdy”.
From his mother’s letter: “We’ve had rehabilitation courses twice a year in “Mat I Ditya” clinic located in Ivanovo. Besides, we went for rehabilitation to Yaroslavl in 2015, to Penza in 2016, to Eupatoria in 2017 and 2018, to Kazan in 2019. In “Luchik Nadezhdy” (Eupatoria) the specialists exercised contracture of Kirill’s left leg. In November 2018, in Tula Kirill had a surgery which helped him straighten his leg. In June 2020, we had another rehabilitation course in “Luchik Nadezhdy”.
Five years ago after a rehabilitation course in the Sports and Recreation Centre “Adeli – Penza” Kirill started walking while holding someone’s hand. Over the past years we’ve been trying to maintain and improve the result with regular rehabilitation courses, but we’ve now run out of money – we can’t afford the cost of another rehabilitation cost, it’s crushingly expensive for us. Yet rehabilitation is vital for our son – we’ve achieved a lot and we’re hoping that another rehabilitation course will help our son walk without support. Perhaps, he’ll be able to stand up from his chair, kick the ball or even run after it. We’re begging for your help!”
We are launching a fundraising campaign for Kirill and hoping for your help!
