The birth of yet another child suffering from an illness caused the mother do decide to ask our foundation for help. Annette also takes care of her 11-year-old son, Gabriel – the child was born with mental and motoric abilities impairment, has had breathing difficulties, eyesight problems, as well as difficulties to speak properly.

Since 14, she has been struggling with drug-resistant epilepsy with tonic-clonic seizures. During said seizures that are unexpected in character, she loses conciousness and hurts her body to a remarkable extent. Due to the discussed problems, she had to be hospitalized. During a seizure taking place in 2007, she burned her hand so badly that professionals had to transplant some skin tissue from her leg. Aside from epilepsy, Annette also struggles with a gastric ulcer and both spine deformation and discal hernia. Even though she has been through a lot, she refuses to give up. Annette has been supported by her partner, Peter.

Raising two disabled children while not being fully capable oneself a great deal of determination. Annette emphasizes that her children are most important to her.
Arthur was born on January 5, 2020. It turned out that he required treatment due to craniosynostosis (which is the professional name of the fusion of the cranial suture) - it is an innate defect which, if left untreated, prevents the proper development of the baby's head, resulting in deformities and the increased risk of various complications. The operation is necessary and will be performed under the supervision of the National Health Fund. Before the operation, Arthur has to undergo a series of medical examinations and consultations, which Aneta decided to pay for. As a mother, she knows that time is of the essence, so she made a decision to carry out tests in one of the two institutions where the professor supervising Arthur would will perform the surgery. Nevertheless, tests are connected with the necessity of paying a fee in the case of the discussed unit.

Commutation, stay, and examination costs are also important, as the medical help has to be provided outside the place of residence of Arthur and his family. Up until recently, they had to commute predominantly to Katowice and to neighboring cities. However, the surgery itself is likely to take place in Olsztyn rather than in Katowice as planned earlier.

Arthur is very important, the operation is getting closer, the date has already been postponed several times, but most likely it will take place at the turn of October and November. This is another change of date, this time due to the fact that Arturek had a fever for three days shortly before the planned surgery in September 39 , 5 degree, and before surgery must be 6 weeks completely healthy. Costs connected with Arthur’s examinations are one thing, but one has also take into account everyday needs, including the needs of the 11-year-old Gabriel. He is Arthur's older brother and would love to serve this role, but due to his disability, Annette feels that she has to take care of two small children. Our help for Annette's family began with focusing mainly on Arturek, but we know that said familial unit also requires support in terms of covering its daily expenses. The monthly income of this family is less than PLN 2200. We know we can count on you. Together, we can help Arthur and Gabriel live much better and more fulfilling lives.

Even though the surgery itself is founded by the NHS, costs connected with trips to the unit for Arthur to undergo examinations, as well as with the examinations themselves are overwhelming.

Needs we collect funds for:  

  • Covering the costs of examinations and consultations required both before and after the surgery.
  • Covering the costs of Arthur’s rehabilitation before and after the surgery - longterm.
  • Covering costs of stay, provisions, and commutation of both the child and his parents to the unit where examinations and the surgery are to be performed. The family lives in a different city.
  • Buying widely-accessible medications and those prescription-only ones – we realize said needs on the ongoing basis.
  • Foodstuffs for the entire family, including milk for Arthur.

  • Rehabilitation trike for Gabriel – such a bike is perfect for children with balance problems and movement impairments. It also stimulates both muscles and bones, as well as boosts blood circulation during the ride and makes the body stronger overall.
  • Orthopedic shoes for Gabriel. – Orthopedic footwear makes it easier to move, stabilizes proper body posture, and prevents the further deformation of the legs of the kid.
