The child is undergoing rehabilitation in Ratingen at Thera Reha clinic. After her complicated birth, Katya did not come out of coma for 3 weeks. The first several months of her life she spent in intensive care, on the artificial respiration, with feeding tubules in her navel. Gradually, she began to open her eyes and learned to breathe on her own. At 3 months, she was allowed to go home. The parents immediately began to look for ways to rehabilitate the child; for the first year they were trying at home, in the centers and clinics of Novosibirsk, but this did not give any results. The first results appeared in Germany. A neurologist from Dusseldorf taught Katya to swallow. At the Thera Reha clinic in Ratingen, the doctors noticed that Katya understands everything and wants to communicate, learn, is trying to move on her own. Due to rehabilitation courses, Katya began to move her hands consciously, roll over, lean on her hands, hold her head, try to communicate with sounds.
To strengthen the muscles further, the doctors advise a special training platform Galileo, as well as SWASH, a verticalizer and orthoses. The price of the equipment totals to EUR 4000.

The collection is over. Thank you!

Age: 13 y.o.
Residence: Moscow
Diagnosis: cerebral palsy
Required: treatment in Germany
Funds to raise: EUR 7,000


At school, Anna is one the two best students in her 7th grade class! Her parents are very proud of her. She likes to read books, and takes extra lessons in English. Anna studies with pleasure, although it is not easy for her to withstand such a big load. With her growing up, she developed scoliosis (the crippled back) and lordosis (arching of spine in the lower back). Parents are trying to help their child. However, the financial situation in the family is difficult: the father cannot work after a stroke he suffered several years ago, and the financial resources have been exhausted. It is very important in adolescence to consolidate the results that have been already achieved in her childhood, not to permit the increased tonus to worsen her walking, to give her an opportunity to stay on her feet, and not to get back to a wheelchair.! For this, she needs to go regularly for a treatment to Ratingen clinics.
The month of Anna’s rehabilitation course costs EUR 7,000
