Due to his health condition, Michael could not contact us by himself. His mother, Catherine, did it for him. Michael does not walk or speak - he does not communicate by using words, does not see and is completely dependent on others. What is even more he is catheterized and suffers from pains caused by bladder stones. He has a certificate confirming his severe disability. Suffering is an inseparable element of Michael's life, but we sincerely hope that - with the help of our extraordinary Donors - the fate of the Foundation's protégé will change for the better.
Michael is 23 and will never be able to lead an independent life. He has been suffering from quadriplegic cerebral palsy since birth. What is even more, he has to deal with epilepsy and is blind (due to optic nerve atrophy). Each disease requires a professional treatment. When it comes to Michael he requires a constant, regular rehabilitation, and pharmacological therapy. Catherine needs our support to be able to provide her son with everything that is necessary for him to survive.
Being a mom is always a challenge. It is difficult to imagine the enormous amount of work and commitment it takes to care for a disabled child. Catherine knows very well how much effort and resources are needed in such a scenario. The deformation of Michael's spine and chest makes the use of orthopedic accessories necessary. Further costs are generated by medications that Catherine's son has to take continuously. What is more, there are also pharmacological and hygienic measures to be accounted for, including, for example: urostomy rinsing fluids, syringes, lotions, and many other items. Michael can drink milk and eat flavored porridges – identical ones that are given to small children. Foodstuffs are yet another expense that has to be undertaken. Providing at least a minimum quality of life for a person struggling with such a poor health condition is really important and Catherine - just like every mother - wants the best for her child. 24-hour care over a disabled person is a huge physical and mental burden for her, but we know that good hearts can give Catherine and Michael a chance for a better and easier tomorrow. Thanks to you, our Charges are never left alone in difficult times!
Needs we collect funds for:
- Hygienic items: urostomy rinsing fluid, sanitary pads, diapers, wet tissues, and other personal hygiene-related goods.
- Purchasing both widely accessible medications and those available on prescription.
- Foodstuffs. Michael has to eat meals similar to those small children eat: flavored porridges, Bebiko Junior 5 milk
- Chemical products for everyday use and cosmetics.
- Clothing: t-shirts, pajamas – Michael’s size is 158/164
- Support in paying bills: rent, electricity, gas supply.
- Sewing machine and materials for Catherine's – sewing is her hobby and a way to relax.
- Replacement of old household appliances: gas stove with an oven, as well as the installation of new ones: under-cabinet hood. - Realized.
- Towels, bedding, bed sheets.
