Humanitarian Foundation BUDI HUMAN - Aleksandar Šapić
raises funds for Ilija Maksimovića (2017).
Ilija is the second child from a regular and controlled twin pregnancy, the first twin passed away. He was born by caesarean section, prematurely, in the 33rd week, he weighed only 1480 grams and his birth grade was three.
Upon admission to the Center for Neonatology in Kragujevac, Ilija was intubated in the first hour of his life in the delivery room, but immediately upon arrival he was reintubated. Due to the lack of oxygen, he had brain hemorrhage of 3/4 degree and the first neonatal seizures, when he immediately got Eftil therapy. His diagnosis is cerebral palsy and epilepsy.
With severe brain damage, the center of vision is also damaged, so Ilija sees very little. He spent two months in an incubator at the neonatology center, on oxygen. He is currently being treated in the Cerebral Palsy Hospital and in Banja Koviljača spa center.
Ilija can neither walk, talk, sit, crawl nor turn.
He needs funds for physical therapies, treatments, rehabilitation in spas in the country and abroad, as well as for travelling and accommodation costs.
