Obadiah was a happy and very positive boy when in 2008 his health problems appeared and extremely deteriorated since then. At first, the doctors were ignoring his failing memory, hyperactivity, and lack of concentration. Despite visits to many specialists, no one was able to diagnose the source of problems, and it’s still the case. Within each month and year, the condition of Obadiah deteriorated drastically and Obadiah regressed in development. About a year ago, Obadiah stopped walking and soon after speaking. The doctors – still without the diagnosis – did not give him a chance for a long life.
We, the parents, against all odds, did not give up and kept visiting different specialists, going to medical seminars and trying to find anyone who could help our son. In May 2018 we found one doctor in Poland, who suggested using specialized therapy using ReWalk rehabilitation. Surprisingly, the therapy helped Obadiah and he started to walk again with the aid of a walking frame. The therapy also brought back his appetite and our hopes grew again.
The cost of a set of rehabilitation sessions about one month long costs about £3000 and we can’t afford to cover this ourselves. The doctor suggested he should have that kind of session every 3 months, but we are raising money to cover only the cost of the next trip, which we hope will help Obadiah even more. Will you help as well? Every penny counts.
