Please familiarize yourself with the entire description provided below. Christopher is 50 years old. He suffers from spinal muscular atrophy. The man has been issued a severe disability certificate. For several years, he has been using a wheelchair, but despite his illness, he does not give up - he has been working as a carpenter's assistant. Christopher is supported and supervised by his wife. Our charge tries to lead a normal life, is active, and has a great passion, but the disease is still troubling for him and cannot let the man in question live his life to the fullest. The progression of SMA is unstoppable and Christopher needs support, which is why he was included in the group of beneficiaries of our Foundation.
SMA – spinal muscular atrophy, is the result of a serious genetic defect our protégé has been suffering from. It cannot be cured. As neurons die, they cause general weakness and atrophy of skeletal muscles with time, resulting in paresis and paralysis. The only way to deal with the disease is to opt for rehabilitation and pharmacotherapy. The most important goal of the fundraiser organized for Christopher is to buy him a car and equip it with appropriate accessories so that the vehicle is adjusted to the needs of a disabled person. Christopher has a car, but it has to be stated that it is very worn out. He mainly travels to work and to attend in rehabilitation-oriented undertakings.
Rehabilitation is of key importance to Christopher. It is the only way to maintain the condition of muscles and prevent them against contractures and other consequences of the disease. As our protégé has stated, the doctors did not expect him to be fit after 40, but despite rather poor prospects, Christopher managed to be completely self-sufficient until 2016 that is - for much longer than expected. He knows perfectly well what it is like to be fit, to be able to walk, to work, and to live actively. We strongly believe that thanks to our fundraiser, he will be able to continue his fight for a brighter future. It you want to support him in that struggle – feel free to donate to him! Thank you very much for any form of help!

30-12-2020 - Christopher received a grant for the purchase of an electric wheelchair. The funding did not cover the entire cost of the equipment, so we supported Christopher in this expense. And there is new, practical equipment :)
