Vlad needs our help to be able to smile

My name is Alberta and I live in Russia since 1993. I am the maternal figure in a Family Home of the Pope John XXIII Community and I am the director of the Daily Center for people with disabilities, in Elista.

I would like to tell you the story of Baria: she is a mother of 3; the last one was born this year, the 8th of September. What a joyful moment! It was immediatly clear, however, that the baby, togheter with the mother and the father, should have started a difficult pilgrimage to hospitals and medical specialists.

VLAD, THIS IS THE NAME OF THE BABY, WAS BORN WITH A CLEFT PALATE, A MALFORMATION THAT INTERFERS WITH THE CAPACITY TO FEED HIMSELF, THE USE OF LANGUAGE, THE DEVELOPMENT OF TOOTHING AND HEARING. HE IS ALREADY FACING THE FIRST CHALLENGE: HE CAN’T BE NURSED AND HE HAS TO TAKE MILK WITH A SPECIAL BOTTLE OR A NASO-GASTRIC TUBE ONLY.

The good news is that this malformation could be treated, but 4 surgeries are needed and they have to be performed according to a specific time-span. To make matters worse, in Russia the cost of this kind of operations should be covered by the patients. Vlad can’t afford all this. And time is not with him: the first surgery has to take place before vlad will turn 3 months, otherwise, according to the doctors, his respiratory system will remain damaged.

NOT MUCH TIME HAS REMAINED: THE FIRST SURGERY HAS TO BE PERFORMED WITHIN THE 8TH OF DECEMBER. EVEN A DAY AFTER THAT DATE COULD BE TOO LATE.

I want to help Vlad and his parents. We can help them, we must do whatever we can to make a miracle happen. Vlad needs our help to be able to smile.
