On the 21st of May 2012 we have received the cost estimates for Bartek’s surgeries and physical therapy. To save our son’s legs we needed around 206 000 U.S. dollars.

On 9th of November National Health Fund (NFZ) has agreed to cover the full cost of the surgeries.

All the donations so far received were facilitated to cover costs of flights and living expenses while in West Palm Beach, FL.

Unfortunately Bartek’s recovery will not be over after the surgeries. For his legs to be fully functional, he’ll need extensive physical therapy for next few years at least and special hand-made braces. Additional check-ups and due to leg length discrepancy possible lengthening are in our plans.

Thank You for every donation!


Bartek belongs to the polish foundation – Fundacja Dzieciom „Zdążyć z Pomocą” (nr. 17734)
