Sepsis almost killed him ... I need help for Jakub

41484896_1577298538533827_r.jpegTerrible wounds on the hands and feet, mutilations that took away efficiency - all through sepsis. The disease came from nowhere, suddenly taking away our happiness. We thought that he would take my son from me ... Winnie was only 18 months old and he suffered so much. He survived, however, he is alive! The son has an amputated part of his feet. We ask for help, because only one doctor in the world can give him a chance for a normal life ...

Jakub condition deteriorated from second to second. He was hospitalized in a critical condition, only his heart was beating ... They said that it was not known whether he would survive. They gave no guarantee, but we prayed. Fortunately, God gave our son one more life!

Winnie had so much strength that he overcame everything. But it turned out that this is not the end of our fight ... Sepsis gave necrotic changes on the legs and hands. The fingers could not be saved ... The left foot suffered the most - there is the largest tissue loss. In the place where the heel was once, now the bone protrudes. Kuba cannot walk through her. The bone is growing all the time ...

In June last year, my son underwent bone shortening surgery. Several months have passed, the bone has grown, Winnie has problems with walking again. It hurts so much ... I see a son who suffers so much. He doesn't understand that he was very sick, that he is now disabled. He would only like to be like other children ...

I am also afraid that the constant shortening of the bones will lead Winnie to serious disability ... Unfortunately, the doctors who take care of his son are not able to help otherwise ... However, hope appeared for the son!

Winnie can live like a healthy child, walk normally! Dr. Paley, a world-famous American orthopedist, specializes in treating such rare, severe defects that my son has. Recently, this type of operation was carried out only in the USA. Today it also operates in Poland!

Recently we were on a consultation. After hearing the case of Jakub, the doctor assured me that my son will have both legs 100% functional! However, for this to happen, you need to have a foot surgery, and this operation comes at a high cost. It's money we don't have and we can't get ...

Winnie's surgery is scheduled for April next year. It will be a reconstruction of the right and left legs. Transfer of tibial tendons and fixation of the inner calcaneus in both legs. The cost of such an operation is over 63 thousand pounds ... This is a huge amount, but if the operation was to take place in the US, it would be even greater! It doesn't change the fact that we can't afford it ... It is very hard for us to look our son in the eye and say that none of this will have surgery, because we are not rich. We can't ... We have to try everything, so we decided to ask for help, believing in a miracle ...

Jakub is my ray that lights up even the worst day. There is nothing more beautiful for us than his smile. The more that we are aware that he might not be with us today ... Sepsis cruelly mutilated him, took the chance for a normal life, sentenced to disability. However, this can be fixed! Please, help Jakub undergo surgery, which is his only hope ...
