Recent news about Maksim and his mother

To date, the boy’s health status has improved. His mother’s everyday care and love have brought good results – the neurologist no more confirms ICP. The doctor marked improvements in the child’s psychomotor development. The boy has become more active and communicable. After the New Year’s celebration, the mother and the child are preparing for hospitalization for scheduled monitoring and treatment of Maksim’s main disease. The boy’s mother has also decided to manage her own problem: she is attending peer support groups at a rehabilitation center. Maksim accompanies her at every session. The woman has also improved relationships with her family members: she is no more in conflict with her father who could not understand her behavior and problems related to the disease. Maksim’s mother is still facing financial hardships, with all the money spent mainly on provision of care to the child (diagnostics, treatment, specialized monitoring). Kristina’s main source of support is her parents. They provide her with material assistance for raising her older children. The MAMA+ Project provides the family with psychosocial assistance, limited material support, as well as diapers, baby formula and clothes.
Presently, Maksim needs warm winter clothes and jumpers.
