The money for a treatment (£74,004) was raised by Channel One television viewers and the readers of Rusfond. Further £9 000 is required to cover the living costs in London, household expenses and expendable medical supplies such as catheters.
The son was born with a severe pathology of the genitourinary system. This was very unexpected for us and a big blow. Our "walking on the agony" began right after Yegor was born. Multiple operations, in total seven of them, and tests under anaesthesia cannot be counted. We have visited regional and capital clinics in Russia, Israel and Germany. However unfortunately, the incontinence problem remains. The boy is growing, and this problem is becoming more acute, he goes to school, feels uncomfortable and is under constant threat of infections. We contacted a professor from London who has already helped many children in the most difficult situations, he agreed to carry out the operation! This means the world to us! Only the lack of money dims it. All money we had we spent on the previous treatment, and now we have nothing left. We would be so much grateful if you could give us the opportunity to use the chance to treat our son! We believe in your kindness and compassion!

Children’s urologist consultant Imran Mushtak at Portland Hospital (London, United Kingdom): "First we will carry out all the necessary tests. It may be necessary to reconstruct the base of the bladder, increase its volume and carry out Mitrofanoff operation. We have everything necessary to help the boy.”
