Another complicated year! The pandemic does not yet allow me to dor all the normal maintenance physiotherapy treatments. That's why I need to guarantee intensive treatments for summer 2022! Make my SUN shine brighter!
It is very important that, if you decide to help me, check the option “Unconditional donation”. This ensures that even if the full amount is not reached, at least your donation is guaranteed! :)
I was born prematurely, at 29 weeks of gestation, and suffered from Cerebral Palsy, which prevents me from walking. This condition affects me "only" at the motor level (I have some difficulty with my upper limbs and I move in a wheelchair). The cognitive part was, fortunately, preserved.
I have been doing intensive treatments since I was 3 years old, first in Cuba, now in a portuguese clinic that follows similar methods ( CHS-CEI ). The aim of the treatments is to improve my quality of life and I have great hope that one day I will be able to walk!
Unfortunately, the Portuguese health system does not pay or share for treatments .
Treatments are carried out in cycles during the summer holidays. Each 28-day cycle costs €5,500 . I need €11,000/year in total (2 months of treatment). I ask for your help to raise the value of just 1 cycle .
The fact that we ask for €6,000 instead of €5,500 is only related to the commission amounts charged by PPL (the €6,000 will be €5,446.50).
I leave you a video of my summer treatments / 2021, I hope you like it!
