VERA VASSILEVA

Born in 2013

Diagnosis: cerebral palsy

Through your kind donations, we were able to raise 2150 euro to cover the expenses on the rehabilitation session

Vera was born prematurely at the 31st week of gestational age. The baby was virtually stillborn and weighed 1540 grams. The doctors succeeded in resuscitating the girl. The child experienced severe hypoxia and perinatal asphyxia. Vera spent a month and a half in the intensive therapy unit and has been fighting for survival and good health since the moment of her birth.

At the age of one Vera was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. When she was two and a half years old, the girl underwent a therapy course in the Intensive Therapy Centre “Olinek” in Warsaw, Poland. After three weeks of intensive exercises Vera was able to sit and stand with a special support.

As a result of several rehabilitation sessions in the clinic “Olinek” Vera learnt to walk using the baby walker by the age of four.

Vera is due to start another intensive therapy session at the medical. It will be another step on the way to achieve her goal – to be able to walk without anyone’s help!

The amount of money needed to cover the expenses on the rehabilitation session is 2150 euros.

Let us change the children’s lives for the better!
