My daughter Sashenka was born premature, after 6 months of pregnancy. From the moment of her birth, me and my husband (he works in the army) have been fighting for the life and health of this child which we have been waiting for for so long. She was first in intensive care at the hospital, then she was treated in St. Nicholas-hospital in St. Petersburg.
When Aleksandra was two months old, we were sent to the army settlement Odintzovo-10 in Moscow region. There she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. In 2006 we learned about Research and Therapy centre of Professor Skvortzov and their success with treatment of similar conditions. In December last year we were admitted to the first course of treatment, and achieved positive results. The function of her left brain hemisphere improved, and motoric function of the hands developed.
As of today, we have received 3 courses of treatment at Professor Skvortzov's therapy centre.
The doctors tell us that Sasha is an excellent child, and give us very good prognoses for the future. In their opinion, our girl will be able to walk on her own. Normally she walks holding our hand or holding on to something, but once she must have forgotten that she has to hold on to something and started walking across the room without support! We were so happy!
Sashenka is a very clever and versatile child, she has very good memory, and loves to memorize poems and then recite these for us, she sets together puzzles containing 9 pieces. She loves to sing caraoke, and her favorite song is «White boats».
When she was 3,5 years old, she started to get interested in letters, and we feel it is not long until she kan start to learn how to read. Sashenka can already count to 10, sometimes to twenty. We are also giving her the necessary treatment at home we have bought a stimulator, give her massages and injections.
To be able to improve Sasha's condition, she has to continue to receive rehabilitation treatment. Unfortunately, we are unable to pay for it on our own, and hope for your support.
