Humanitarian Foundation BUDI HUMAN - Aleksandar Šapić
raises funds for Teodora Obradović (2002).
Teodora is the third child from the second, twin pregnancy. Children were born a month earlier, by Caesarean section.
By the age of five, Teodora developed normally both physically and mentally, without any signs of any anomaly. At the age of five, the child began to have seizures manifesting by stiffen right side of the body followed by screaming. These seizures were diagnosed as epileptic seizures and she had them thirty times a day. A month after, she was diagnosed with Chiari malformation and Hydromyelia, which immediately demanded surgical treatment. In the fifth year she had five head surgeries. As a result, she got hidrocephalus so she had VP shunt installed. After that, there was deterioration and the child went into a coma. The external drainage was made to save her life.
For the next eight years, Teodora lived normally. She grew, developed and went to school. In April, she had had a very strong epileptic seizure after which she was paralysed. A magnetic resonance and closer examinations proved that her life is more in danger than before. In April and May 2017 two operations were performed that did not make any improvements. In August 2017, she went to Turkey for treatment. There was another operation done there, and her health condition was improving. After rehabilitation she began to function without a support. At the end of 2017, her health deteriorated again and in January 2018 she was operated again. By July 2018, another nine operations were carried out. She was three times in a coma and on life support for a month and a half. She had tracheotomy too.
Teodora is currently in the hospital, at the intensive care unit. Her health is stable now and she should be home soon. Treatment at home requires high expenditures, and parents need financial help to provide everything needed forTeodore's treatment.
Teodora has an older sister, a twin brother and a younger brother too. She finished elementary school regularly, she enrolled in Grammar school. Everything went normal until the disease ruined everything. She is happy and carefree, she likes family, music and socializing with her friends. Even after 18 operations, her smile still stays on and her greatest wish is to come home and be with her family.
