Mett Dmitrii, a happy gentle boy who needs a rehabilitation course from the ‘Sakura Medical Centre’ which costs 400,000 rubles.
Dmitrii has spastic diplegia, a form of cerebral palsy and lower spastic tetraparesis.
We recently received a letter from Dimitrii’s mother explaining her story and why Dimitrii truly needs our help:
I am a mother to three children of which I am bringing them up on my own. I have two daughters and a son. My daughter Kristina and my son Dima are twins; however they were born prematurely after only 28-29 weeks of pregnancy. Kristina, thank God, was a healthy girl and now goes to kindergarten. Unfortunately, my little Dima sustained trauma during birth and consequently he has a diplegic form of cerebral palsy and lower spastic tetraparesis (more so in his legs).
During the last four years, our family has gone through continuous rehabilitation and courses with Dima. We did not have to wait long for results as Dima has proven he can turn himself over with ease, hold his head up, crawl on his hands and knees, sit in a chair without support and has started to walk and stand on his own with the aid of crutches. Furthermore, Dima speaks well for his age, has fluid conversations with people and makes logical conclusions. Yet now Dima is becoming impatient as he wants start learning how walk so he can catch up with his sisters.
The only way Dima has gotten as far as he has today is due to him going through two rehabilitation courses; one rehabilitation centre in Crimea and the other in a place called Evpatorsky military hospital in China – all of which has been paid for by myself.
I bring up the children on my own, with only some help from my parents. However, they are already pensioners and financial means for further continuous rehabilitative treatment for Dima is not enough coming from only my parents and I So, I appeal to all of you to somehow help with the payments for a rehabilitation course for Dima Tikhanov in the ‘Sakura Medical Centre’ in Chelyabinsk. Please, help my son go to this vital rehabilitation course so that he can become stronger and learn how use his legs to walk, an action often taken for granted by most.”
