Aaron Keyan, born on 24.03.2012

Diagnosis: Retinopathy of prematurity of 5th degree, blindness.

I often see on my Facebook or Vkontakte feed list a number of tearful posts, full of terrible images and diagnoses about a sick child who needs some thousands of dollars.

I used to respond immediately by donating some money and then I got used to such requests and eventually stopped paying such a close attention to each and every help appeal online. You probably know from your experience some things just stop to touch your heart. Passing by the maternity hospital where I often see future moms smoke, drink beer on the bench, I think - okay, here they are - the future authors of the posts, "Help collect money for surgery!" in all its glory. Cynical, but what can we do?

Most of my friends have the same reaction. You cant help everybody, and then there is no guarantee that such fund-raising campaigners are not simple criminals.

However, one should always keep in mind that a small child is surely not guilty and not responsible for the sins of his parents. Whats more every one of us may face the same ordeal one day.

In 2012 my mother's friends have got a baby. The long-awaited one... He was born in the fifth month of pregnancy - and miraculously survived. What do parents feel if they are told by doctors "it may be better not to save your boy"? Parents usually do what they have to - they fight for life of their beloved child. They are aware that the child is likely to grow disabled. They know that they will make every effort to make their childs life happy. Unlike some parents they are ready to work long and hard to make their child feel better.

Unfortunately, after the ultrasonic scanning of eyes the news were not good. The retina of the left eye could not stand it and burst. And the brilliance that Natasha noticed in Aarons eye before leaving for the rehabilitation in Lviv was the visible sign of this situation. Now it is necessary to remove the brilliance. Dr. Baranov A.V. from St. Petersburg will try to "solder" the gap, but he gives no guarantee... It's just another opportunity to save the babys vision.

According to the checkups, it became clear that Aaron has a chance to see, the results show contour vision! The baby takes purposefully glowing objects. And this is a huge step forward, but to have his vision gradually restored, the boy should regularly take courses of stimulation. In March 2014 Aaron should take his second treatment. Unfortunately, there is no special equipment which can treat such special kids in Ukraine. A treatment abroad is too expensive for an ordinary Ukrainian family.

The Keyans family lives in Zaporizhzhia.
