Cozari Valeria, 10 years
FUNDS COLLECTION IS CLOSED!
Valeria´s story was told us by her mother. The girl is waiting for our help.
Valeria was born on January 14, 2004. She is a talented and sensitive child, her dream is to dance on the stage. But her dream was broken in April 2014, when she was diagnosed with «Supraventricular tachycardia.» Since then things have changed: any effort, any emotion could provoke a crisis, when the pulse rose to 240 beats per minute.
Chisinau Hospital of V. Ignatenco became her second home. In the resuscitation section doctors did everything they could to stabilize Valeria, but attacks could last for 6-8 hours. After many tests and treatments doctors admitted that they cannot cope with the situation and advised to go to foreign clinics. We went to Cyprus in the American Center of Cardiology, then in other clinics with the hope that we can be helped. But all the doctors said that there is only one way out – urgent surgical intervention, as the conservative treatment of this disease does not exist, and crises are becoming more common and can occur at any time cardiac arrest. We sent the documents to clinics in Germany, Turkey, and Russia. All were ready to take us, but the waiting period from 30 to 60 days was unacceptable in our state.
At the urging of some doctors we have been urgently taken to the hospital Schneider in Israel. Cost of operation – $ 20,000. For us it was a huge amount. With great difficulty, with the support of family, friends, school and just caring people we have been able to pay for the operation. With hope in our hearts we flew to Israel. At the 15th of September, at 14:30 operation began, which was to continue for 3 hours. After every 40 minutes the anesthetist informed us about the state of our daughter. It took 3 hours but the operation was finished nobody came us. Then another 4 hour nightmare and finally the door of the operating room has been opened and the surgeon came out.
It was like a scene from the movie – he removed the hat from his head and threw it on the floor. I could barely stay on my feet, my eyes darkened. The doctor came up to me, took my hand and said quietly, «sorry». The operation failed, the doctors did everything they could, but need to carry out another operation because the girl is very weak and now she cannot bear any longer. The shock was so strong that I almost did not hear him. But we got through it. Valeria is preparing now for the second operation, she receives maintenance therapy. She really needs all the help; by ourselves we will be not able again to collect the required amount. It needs to be collected 18 379 USD (~ 331 950 MDL).
