The Humanitarian Foundation BUDI HUMAN – Aleksandar Šapić
raises funds for the treatment of little Ilija Marinković (2006).
He is exceptionally intelligent child who loves sports, mathematics and animals. Unfortunately, Ilija has Dischen's muscular dystrophy. This disease means that Ilija's muscles are gradually weakening and losing its mass. Because of that disease, children become disabled by the age of 12 and their life expectancy is between 20 and 30 years. The reason of such short life is that the heart muscle weakens and eventually stops. This is incurable disease, but to help Ilija improve his everyday life it is necessary to provide him with rehabilitation therapy in Banja Koviljaca, Vrnjacka Banja, as well as with purchasing of medicine Idebenon and vitamins for strengthening his body. It's Ilija's only chance for better future.
