Now Viktorija is 12 years old. She is not able to sit or walk on her own, she cannot say – mom, dad, grandma, grandpa – or individual sounds. She moves around the room and outside with the support of her walker. Diagnosis – infantile cerebral palsy, spastic tetraparesis.
Viktorija understands everything. She reacts to different situations of life adequately. She understands Russian, as well as Latvian. She is a very social girl, she likes interaction with others, she knows how to ask for help when she needs it. Viktorija really loves to swim! For medical reasons, her parents take her horse riding. Her joy is unlimited! She likes music, she tries to sing along with it, she likes to be together with other children and she dreams of running together with them.
Viktorija has an eight-year old sister Anastasija and a six-month old brother Mihails, with whom she would really like to play and have fun with.
With the support of contributors, Viktorija had a chance to undergo surgery (on 23 April 2009) in Tula to prevent contracture and to decrease spasticity.
After the surgery, Viktorija will need rehabilitation in Poland. It will be a 28-day physical rehabilitation course, which also incorporates parental training after a specially developed programme for the specific child. The course costs EUR 7 900. Viktorija would have to attend such rehabilitation course at least twice a year. The methodology of the course gives hope for the development and improvement of Viktorija’s functional abilities. The treatments are long and expensive, they require large investments.
LVL 11 800 are needed to support Viktorija. The family is asking everyone who is concerned for Viktorija’s future to support her financially and help prove that there are no hopeless situations!
Let’s help Viktorija!
