Humanitarian Foundation BUDI HUMAN - Aleksandar Šapić
raises funds for the treatment of small Anđela Stanišić (2004).
Anđela has been struggling with a difficult disease called spinal muscular atrophy type 2 since the first year of her life. This is a progressive disease that has developed. So far, she has had two surgeries (knees and groin), and little Anđela is expecting a few more. The most difficult will be the spinal surgery. She is not able to walk, perform basic life functions and, for her the most difficult, she cannot play with her peers. She spends most of her time in bed and wheelchairs. And besides everything, she is cheerful and happy child, fully aware of her problems.
Parents found their hope in Ukraine, where the stem cell transplantation is being performed. They have already done it twice and the progress is remarkable. Unfortunately, the therapy has to be renewed for a year, and each costs EUR 10,000. Her parents are unable to collect such money by themselves and therefore they are asking all kind hearted people to help Anđela live her life without hospitals, doctors and needles. She needs funds for the next scheduled treatment.
