Here is a quote from the letter written by Daniil’s mother:
We call Daniil — Pozitivchik. He hardly moves, underwent 5 surgeries, we constantly transport
him here & there for treatment, give him drugs and injections, make painful massage and make
him do physical training. We are exhausted, but he smiles. He is a buoyant, sunny boy!
In March of this year a new child was born in our family. Now it became absolutely impossible
to leave the city in search of a treatment. I can’t leave the newborn, the father can’t take a
vacation since his job is the only source of income in our household, at least it allows to buy
medicines for Daniil. And there is no specialized treatment in our city. Therefore we are forced
to forget about trips for several years. But we can’t leave Daniil without physical exercise either,
it’s the only way for him to become unassisted.
We are begging you for help in buying the «Adeli» suit for our son. It allows children suffering
from infantile cerebral paralysis to learn walking without leaving home. Such suit costs 20,200
rubles. We do our best to pay for everything Daniil needs ourselves, but we have no funds for the
suit. Please, help us!
