=====================================

Danil was the first and wanted child in his family. The boy was born with the weight of 2,550 kg, the delivery was not easy, and doctors had to fight for his life. Afterwards, there was a long and complicated recovery period both for him and for his mother.

Before his first birthday, little Danil was very weak, he had anemia and often got sick with catarrhal diseases. But as time went by, he became stronger, gained weight and was progressing as any normal child.

When Danil was 2.5 years old, he started attending the day care, he really enjoyed going there, was a lively child, loved learning new things and made happy both his parents and educators.

When the boy was seven, he went to school, grinding away at his studies, taking part in all school events. Soccer games and boxing classes were his favorite activities.

But year 2009 ruined the smooth life of the family. Danil found himself in a hospital, with potential diagnosis “acute leukemia, systemic blood disease”. Fortunately, observations and examinations did not confirm the leukemia diagnosis. Instead, the boy was told he had “portal hypertension” and before 2014 the boy periodically visited the doctor at his local hospital.

In November 2014, the boy was taken to the Intensive Care Unit, where he was given another diagnosis; thus, portal hypertension was accompanied with variceal bleeding in esophagus and icterus. Ulcer disease, bleeding duodenal ulcer…

At the moment, the child is staying in Zaporozhzhye Regional Hospital. His condition is critical. He lost a lot of blood and had a blood transfusion.

Danil urgently needs an expensive surgery in the city of Moscow: according to the preliminary consultations with doctors, the surgery will cost the family about 180 thousand Russian rubles (approximately 3,738 US dollars).

For the ordinary family, with Danil’s mother being a housewife, looking after the boy’s younger sister and his father, who is a workman, this is an unmanageable amount. But this money can save the life of their son.

The family lives in the city of Volnyansk.
