The surgery is scheduled for June 5th.

Fundraising continues for Gleb's operation. The boy has "congenital radial club hand". This is when instead of two bones in the forearm of the right hand, there is only one, and the thumb is missing from the hand.

The correction of this pathology continues throughout Gleb's life. Eight surgeries, dozens of x-rays. His pen is almost constantly in plaster or hung with the Ilizarov apparatus - a metal structure for stretching and fixing the bone. Non-childish trials for a six-year-old boy.

In September of this year, Gleb will become a first-grader. He diligently prepares for school, but in addition to the ability to read and count, it is necessary that Gleb's right hand more or less work. This is what all surgical interventions are aimed at.

The next operation is scheduled for June 5th. Its estimated cost is $ 541. Half of the planned amount is already on our account, thanks, friends! But there is not much time left, we still need $ 270.

Please help the boy finally get rid of the cast and feel the freedom of movement!
