Dear donors, you have already helped Yaroslav to fight the disease: kyphoscoliosis of the 4th degree. Thanks to the extraordinary efforts of many people, we managed to raise funds for the operation for installing of a metal structure on the spine. It was vital necessity: the arc of the spine compressed boy’s heart and strangulated his lungs; it was very difficult for him to breathe; he felt constant pain in the back. Without installing a metal structure, his life hung by a single hair. The operation corrected the condition of Yaroslav’s spine, now the internal organs are not clamped by the arc of the spine and can function normally; cramps stopped. And, we really would like to be happy about the guy’s condition, but... There was an unexpected incident: new pain and new suffering that neither he nor his family expected.
