VERONIKA SHIDT

February 2, 2000

Diagnosis:

Spastic cerebral paralysis, epilepsy

Through your kind donations, we were able to raise the required amount of money to pay for Veronika’s treatment in Israel.

Veronika was born prematurely at 34 weeks gestational age with emergency Caesarean section. The reason for the surgical procedure was the umbilical cord entanglement around the fetus and the risk of fetal hypoxia. At the age of 8 months Veronika was diagnosed with spastic cerebral paralysis. Since then Veronika and her parents have been fighting for the child’s life against the severe disorder. By the age of 5 Veronika had developed a complication – epilepsy.

This condition makes it impossible to achieve a stable improvement in the patient’s state.

Veronika has a chance to get better if she undergoes diagnostic procedures at Assuta Medical Center, Israel. The results will allow the doctors to decide upon the further plan of therapy and rehabilitation.

And what is more, it will give Veronika hope to make her first steps.

Maftuna returned from the diagnostics

Our child under the care, Maftuna Kasimova, returned from Israel, where she underwent examination at the Sourasky Medical Center (Ichilov). Doctors have diagnosed that her brain tumor is of benign nature. A new phase of diagnostics is waiting for a girl ahead. We will tell you about the results and the new developments.
