Humanitarian Foundation BUDI HUMAN - Aleksandar Šapić
raises funds for Ognjen Jovanović(2014)
Ognjen was prematurely born in the eighth month, he spent the first month in an incubator. The lack of oxygen and hemorrhage in the brain of the lowest degree, unfortunately left the consequence. He also got epileptic seizures, when he was eight months old.
Then, in addition to cerebral palsy, he was diagnosed with West Syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy.
Luckily, Ognjen has no epileptic seizures since he got an adequate therapy and he is mentally preserved too. When he was just three months old, he started physiotherapy at the Special Hospital for cerebral palsy and developmental neurology, where he spends a few months a year.
Ognjen cannot sit without someone's help, he cannot walk or crawl. He goes to the kindergarten and loves to spend time with his peers.
In order to make further progress, he needs surgery, rehabilitation and orthopedic equipment that require significant funds, which his family is not able financially to afford.
