Humanitarian Foundation BUDI HUMAN - Aleksandar Šapić
raises funds for Julija Dimitrijević (2015).
Julija was born as a healthy kid, played with her parents, went to kindergarten, rode her bike. However, problems arose in 2017. The child was often ill and one day the eye started to turn red. At first, the family hoped that nothing was serious, that it was just inflammation, conjunctivitis, and that it would pass. She was treated with eye drops, but the situation with eye was getting worse until Julija was found to be suffering from an autoimmune disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, which affects tissues, in her case the eye tissue, and destroys it.
Julija begins biological therapy - Humira, hoping to stop eye inflammation. However, she was soon diagnosed with complicated cataracts and iridocyclitis, after which she completely lost her eyesight.
Parents find out about a clinic in Russia where blind children are treated and operated and contacted shortly thereafter. The answer was positive so the urgent visit is needed and perhaps it is the last chance for the possibility of returning the sight by a special, Russian method.
Julija's parents hope that the help of good people will enable Julia to be treated in Russia and thus increase her chances of seeing again and returning to a normal life like all the other children. Funds are raised for treatment and travelling expenses.
