I have started this campaign to help save a 2.5 years old boy’s life. David (Dawid) Drapacz lives in Opole, Poland with his sister and parents. Despite young age and innocence, this brave little boy has already undergone several major heart surgeries, including one 2 weeks after he was born,  second at 15 months old, and several catherizations. David was born with rare conditions of Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), occluded pulmonary arterioles, and suffers from significant pulmonary hypertension. His pulmonary arteries and small deep vessels are hypoplastic and do not supply sufficient amount of oxygen to his lungs.  These conditions, which impact the oxygen saturation in his body (his is 79 vs 99 of his healthy sister; see picture at the bottom) are life threatening, and eventually, without treatment, his heart will not be able to keep up with the pace of his developing body and will shut down… David will not reach adulthood without surgical intervention.

With your help, David can undergo a life saving surgery to be performed by a world renown Dr. Hanley of Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford in California. Dr. Hanley is the only medical professional in the world who is capable of performing a series of complex procedures necessary to save David’s life and has agreed to do so. In fact he has already saved the lives of two Polish children with similar conditions and permanently healed them. The surgeries would include cardiac catherization, conduit replacement, and PA reconstruction. The challenge is the astronomical cost of the surgery, which has to be paid for out of the parents’ pocket and in advance of the surgery. After rigorous negotiations with the hospital, the facility has agreed to reduce the original cost of $2.6 Million down to $1.3 Million, however this “discount” is only valid until 8/31/18.

There have been numerous fundraisers setup back in Poland, but in a country where the average individual net monthly income is around $1,000 USD, the goal of $1.3M is far from being reached. Please consider donating something, anything...., to help save David’s life so that he can come to the US for the much needed surgery. The goal is to raise at least 1% of the overall total, which equates to $13,000. Please also share this fundraiser with your family and friends. All funds raised here will go directly towards David’s medical treatment fund.

Thank  you!

*Bardzo ważna aktualizacja*
Udało się nam wynegocjowac ze szpitalem ze ustalą termin operacji, w celu jej przyśpieszenia, jak wykażemy że uzbierano już milion dolarȯw. To wyjątek iż procedury szpitala w normalnych sytuacjach wymagaja potwierdzenia uzbierania całej kwoty zanim termin zostanie wyznaczony. To daje ogromną szansę przyspieszenia operacji, ktȯrą wiemy ze trzeba przeprowadzić jak najszybciej, puki stan Dawidka pozwala jeszcze na podrȯż do USA i ingerencję chirurgiczną. Każdy dzień, każdy dolar jest na wagę złota.
Prosimy o udostępnienie tego postu i strony www.gofundme.com/dawidd
Dziękujemy za wsparcie!


*Important Update*
After much negotiations, the hospital has agreed to start the surgery scheduling process as soon as we can show $1 million being collected. They are making an exception based on Dawid’s heart condition and the fact Dr Hanley is already scheduling out up to 9 months in advance, as normally they will not schedule until the full funds ($1,3m) are collected. This gives Dawid chance to speed up the surgery, which we know can only be completed while his heart is still stable enough and he can withstand the 10+ hour flight from Poland to California. Please share our post and our website www.gofundme.com/dawidd
Thank you for your continued support!

Dear friends, supporters, followers...

There are 60 days left to raise the remaining funds for Dawid's surgery. With that said, the overall collection to date is at 25% of the total goal of $1.3M. Because we really need to step it up, we launched new ways for you to help, including auctions. So, first and foremost, share our GoFundMe on your Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Spread the word telling your friends, email, text. If you can and havent already, donate money to GoFundMe or donation cans. You can donate gift cards, gift certificates, and services for an online auction I launched, or buy things off the auction. Lastly, attend some of the concert and sales we are hosting across CT, NY and IL.

Thank you!
