Medical report

It has been more than a year since we shared Kiril Leskov’s story with you. This little fellow is truly unique! One look is enough to fall in love with Kiril forever. Just look at his picture and you will feel the same. I have not met this little boy personally yet but even his photos alone steal my heart right away.

Last year we successfully closed Kiri’s fund-raising campaign. We really believed that his health condition would improve soon…but alas…This week we have received an email from Kiril’s parents. The latest health examination showed that the child’s condition has deteriorated. The physicians strongly recommend an urgent surgery that involves inserting the tube which will hopefully drain Kiril’s only functional kidney.

Without the surgery little Kiril will have to carry a urethra device for the rest of his life!!!”

According to the preliminary calculations this surgery will cost approximately 5,000 hryvnyas or 625 US dollars. The surgery is planned to take place at the Zaporizhzhia Children’s Hospital # 5 on the 17th of June 2013. We have no time to lose! Kiril’s mom and dad have no one they could ask for help but you, our kind donors!

There is another anus correction surgery planned for autumn as well since Kiril was born with imperforate anus. This little boy had to face a great number of surgeries. Nappies and medicine are an essential part of Kiril’s life.

Kiril’s mother Tatiana is still jobless since she has to look after her little son. Kiril’s father is the only person who works in their little family. They urgently need to raise 625 US dollars, so we are hoping for your kind support! These 625 US dollars mean life for this fair-haired boy.

If Kiril does not undergo this surgery which is supposed to empty his kidney, the consequences can be terrible. We are all asking you to give Kiril a chance for life, for his happy childhood!
