Yana is the third child in the family, a long-awaited child. She was born prematurely. At birth her height was only 38 cm. When she was just 2.5 months old, the baby girl had her first operation which lasted 5 hours. But Yana and her family are fighters. Thanks to regular massage sessions, physical therapy exercises and rehabilitation courses, the girl is actively growing. She walks by herself, is enrolled in the first grade of a music school and even plays the flute.

Last spring it was again detected the girl had tethering of the spinal cord. Complications were stopped last time, thanks to an emergency operation. However, now Yana again complains of pain in the back and right leg, and almost does not feel the lower part of her body. The Israeli clinic may help the girl. The cost of the spinal cord surgery is $ 49,550, and the treatment is scheduled for June 28th.
