Egor Konnov, 10 years old, numerous defects of the genitourinary system, one single kidney, a chronic renal failure, requires medical examination and surgery at the Great Ormond Street Hospital (London, United Kingdom), 8,000.00 GBP

Egor Konnov, 10 years old, numerous defects of the genitourinary system, one single kidney, a chronic renal failure, requires medical examination and surgery at the Great Ormond Street Hospital (London, United Kingdom), <nobr>8,000.00 GBP</nobr>

The money for the treatment (77 679 GBP) have been raised by the viewers of Channel One and readers of Rusfond. We must now raise 8000 GBP to cover the costs of accommodation in London, the other household expenses and everyday medical items such as catheters. 

Soon after Egor's birth, it was discovered that he has serious problems with kidneys and his urethra. To date, my son has had 16 operations to correct the defects. The right kidney was removed, the ureters and the bladder have been operated on a number of times. Despite this, the urine does not go to the bladder but rather accumulates in the kidney. For this reason, Egor had two stoma (openings) made, where the catheter takes away the contents of the kidney and the bladder. Egor's ureters are covered in scars and doctors are refusing to operate on them. Moreover, Egor suffers from constant infections and the consequences could be dire – his only kidney could fail. We are in a dangerous situation and I cannot bear to watch my child suffer. I have reached out to a clinic abroad that treats children with such problems and the hospital agreed to conduct an examination and carry out the surgery. I will never be able to pay the bill. Please help, I beg you! There is still a chance to improve my son's health and make his life a happier one!

Paediatric urological consultant at the Great Ormond Street Hospital, Professor Imran Mushtaq (London, United Kingdom): 'This is a very complicated case that requires a very thorough examination of the patient. The current stage of the illness is a fairly unstable one. The patient may be required to undergo surgery to increase his bladder or alternatively replace the ureters. Our hospital is ready for a patient with such a serious condition and will be able to accommodate their needs'.
