Dasha,Diagnose: infantile cerebral paralysis, hemiplegia III stage, convulsive syndrome.

Dear people!
I am addressing to you with a request and with a great hope for help.
My daughter is very ill and when she was born the doctors told us that the child won’t live more than 6 months. But Dasha is alive and now she is 23 years old. I have been fighting for Dasha’s life since her birth. I have been struggling with the pain my beloved daughter suffers from.
I have studied the Su-Jock therapy and have done a lot myself.
Doctors were surprised at our success and could not believe that we were coping with the disease.
But unfortunately our doctors haven’t been able to make the correct diagnosis, and we had to go to Germany to save my daughter. But when we raised all the necessary money to pay for the medical treatment it was too late and Dasha had her hip joint amputated.

But what matters a lot is that terrible pain and cramps have gone away, now my daughter is recovering, she already can stay outdoors and sit in a wheelchair for a while. Before the surgery she was bedridden during many years.
Now we need to continue active rehabilitation and anticonvulsant treatment.
But the treatment is expensive and we can’t pay for it ourselves. Our friends and kind people from all over the world help us to raise the necessary sum. But the money is being raised extremely slowly, and time isn’t on our side, each day of delay is undesirable. The later we get the treatment, the more time we lose, and all our achievements may disappear quickly. But we can’t stop; all the life we’ve been moving forward.

What we need now is getting treatment in a hospital of Shemberg, Germany.
Minimum course of treatment costs 13,000 EUR, not including the cost of visas and travelling expenses.
Our income consists of two parts – my pension and my daughter’s disability allowance. Taken together they are a little more than 300 BYN(about $160). So we can’t even save a few cents for the treatment, not mentioning about paying for the full course of it.
I know that there are thousands of families with the same problems, and you help them as far as possible.
And I really hope that my family could be one of them.
I do not know how much time the Lord will give me; I underwent a cancer surgery and a course of radiotherapy. But I believe strongly that the Lord will give me a long life time so that I could be with my daughter and help her as much as I can.

With faith and great gratitude, Natallia Zhurbina

Dear friends! Due to the help of many people Dasha has received 3 operations in a clinic in Germany. You can view a report on our stay in the clinic in the “photos” section. At present Dasha can sit in the wheel chair. The convulsions ceased entirely. But we need to continue our treatment in the clinic in Germany because Dasha’s right hip joint is very painful and there is a chance that it may share the fate of the left joint that was already operated on. To continue our treatment we need to pay the clinic 48491,62 euro. We do not have such a money. Without your help we will not be able to cope with that and to proceed with the treatment. We can’t stop at this stage as in that case all our efforts will be in vain. Please, help us to complete the treatment. Both of us rely on the generosity of your support and believe in the victory over the pain. Even the smallest amount donated by you is very important to us. Our deepest thanks go to everyone who is able to help and support us in such a difficult time. God save you!

Every mother knows the joy that comes with the birth of a child, and how quickly the pain is forgotten. Our pain didn't go away; it has been with us for the past 16 years, physical pain for my daughter and emotional pain for me.

Dasha was born on September 26, 1993 and was diagnosed with Cerebral palsy, 3rd degree hemiplegia and convulsive syndrome. In the past year Dasha's condition has substantially worsened. The joints in her legs have stopped extending and Dasha can only lie. Due to the spasms in her legs she can't sit, not even in a wheelchair. Her pains are so sever that we practically don't sleep at night and every movement comes with great effort and with tears.

We were planning to have an operation in Tula, but as a result of the frequent attacks the operation there was postponed by 3 months. Unfortunately we can't make it for 3 months without attacks.

Consequently we found a clinic in Erlangen, Germany, where they can do both the treatment and the operation. The amount needed for the services of the clinic is 20,000 euros. Also we need to use a special flight, whitch will deliver Dasha there and back, accompanied by a doctor. The fee for this flight is 17,800 euros one way. Unfortunately Dasha can't travel in any other way. The total sum for the flights and the treatment is - 55,600 euros. We are hopefull that one of the flights will be paid for by the German foundations in the amount of 17,800 euros. If that indeed shall happen we will write about it immediately. This is an amount I can't acquire in a lifetime. I can't work due to the fact that I am constantly by my daughter's side for the past 16 years. We live together, just the two of us.

I am coming to you with an enormous financial request. Help us, please, with the collection of funds for this treatment. Without your help we can't handle this terrifying disease. I want to thank in advance all those who answer our call for help. God bless you.
