Project Report | Jan 15, 2019
Marian's first New Year!

By Balan Marina | Project Leader

Dear friends, thank you for your dedication and continuous support!  We’d like to share news about the boy to whom we helped. His  name is Marian S. He  is only 8 months. His  diagnosis: Congenital Heart Disease.

In Marian’s family from Donduseni children are treated very carefully, because all kids suffers from congenital heart disease. First child survived only two weeks not having enough time to wait for life-saving surgery. With Gabriel, second child, we have met when he was in urgent need of heart surgery intervention. We managed to collect a part of necessary for intervention funds. Now Gabriel is 6 years old, he is ok.

Recently, third child Marian was born in this family. Not even one medical screening  didn’t detect fetal heart problems, however during first 2 life hours baby began to suffocate. Fate of the family – heart disease – was the reason.

Doctors from Chisinau and Kiev cured the baby, his medical status varies from stabile up to extremely severe. Only 2 weeks of his life the baby spent at home. Until his life is in danger – hospital room is his home. It is painful. The whole family is suffering.

On august Marian with his mother was in Kiev for scheduled surgery. Baby`s Heart Foundation granted 8.000 Euro. But the situation unexpectedly deeply worsened. Pacemaker needed to be installed until the baby is at the Hospital, but invoice for medical care increased up to 20.000 Euro.

Father is the only person who work in the family. He is a tractor-driver with not-permanent seasonal job, the rest of time he is farming and does every job he can find.

But fortunately,  his very first New Year Marian  met home surrounded by family. It is a very goods news, because since he was born and during 7 months he stayed at the hospital.

The boy is under permanent monitoring of cardiologist. Doctor says that surgery will not be necessary up till 4 year old. Later, maybe, will arise the necessity to change pacemaker. But is very early to discuss it, because there is one small opportunity that pacemaker will be not necessary in the future.

For now baby is growing and trying to reach his peers growth. Due to the very complicated surgery and long period of rehabilitation Marian weights only 5 800 gr being 8-months baby. He is on special diet and not crawling yet. But we are absolutely convinced, that in atmosphere of love and care of his family the boy will recover more quickly.

Surgery for Marian was paid by several charitable organizations. We would like to thank all of you who offered in time assistance for our beneficiary.
