Fedor (1 year 8 months) is the third child in the family. The long-awaited son is ill: the developmental defect of the brain is lissencephaly + symptomatic epilepsy. Despite the diagnosis and contrary to all predictions, Fedya tries to sit, crawls, stands on legs, plays patty-cake, recognizes relatives, pronounces many letters and syllables.
For almost a year, doctors have been trying to find a drug that can ease epileptic seizures – but without success. Seizures do not go away, the brain cells die. The Technon Medical Center in Barcelona is ready to help Fedya.
