The money for a treatment (20 326,35 GBP) was raised by Channel One television viewers and the readers of Rusfond. Further 7 600 GBP is required to cover the living costs in London, household expenses and expendable medical supplies such as catheters.
My daughter was born with severe developmental malformations, she did not have excretory function of the intestine and kidneys. She had operations carried out from the first days of her life, however unfortunately, they did not bring any improvements. Function of the kidneys deteriorated so much that one had to be removed. All our hopes were related to a trip to London to receive treatment. Thank you very much for this opportunity! The professor carried out the operation on the bladder, put in place all the organs of the genitourinary system. Now Dasha can independently hold urine and no longer needs a nappy. However, it is impossible to correct all the deficiencies at once. Surgeons set up a colostomy (an opening on the abdominal wall through which the intestines are emptied - Rusfond). It now complicates the life of the child: she cannot go to the pool, she is not accepted to the dance club and gymnastic section. Dasha studies well and is a sociable and active child. The surgeon in London expects to reconstruct the anus and the defecation process will be normalised. We so much hope for your help as I raise my daughter alone and do not have any money for the treatment.

Children’s urologist consultant Imran Mushtak at Portland Hospital (London, United Kingdom): “Dasha came through the operation well, I am pleased with the result. She carries out catheterisation on her own and remains dry for a long time. It is important for her to arrive in summer 2017 for a full examination. We together with the proctologist will consider the possibility of closing the stoma."
