Humanitarian Foundation BUDI HUMAN - Aleksandar Šapić
raises funds for Đorđe Kovačević (2003).
Đorđe is being treated for autism from the third year.
Three years ago it was discovered that he had Wilms's tumor. After the six cycles of chemotherapy, he had a surgery when both the tumor and the kidney were removed. Four more cycles of chemotherapy followed, and then another change in the spine was spotted. A histopathological findings confirmed another tumor which began to wrap around the main aorta. This tumor was urgently removed.
But, Đorđe's struggle is never-ending. In the meantime, he had four stomach surgeries due to intestinal inflammation and later he was diagnosed with a rare syndrome - Bainbridge-Ropers syndrome and epilepsy too.
Đorđe has a complete clinical picture of deep autism, which is further complicated by epilepsy, frequent psychomotor disturbances to temper tantrum, occasionally aggressive, autoaggressive and destructive behaviour. Intellectually he is at a level of severe mental retardation and requires a first degree of support, which means that this boy needs twenty-four hours of support and help.
Let’s provide Đorđe with the means to continue the work with speech therapists, defectologists, inevitable physical therapy and spa treatments.
Our little help means a lot to Đorđe! Let's be humane!
