More and more children in Russia have recently been born prematurely. Such children risk to become blind due to terrible disease.
This disease is retinopathy of prematurity or a disorder of retinal development begins during the first months of a baby’s life. If the treatment is not launched in time, the retina will detach and a newborn will lose eyesight forever.
The most effective and safe way to save a child’s eyesight is injection of a VEGF inhibitor. Every hour counts here, while this surgery is not covered by the Compulsory Medical Insurance.
The period between diagnosis and surgery should not exceed 72 hours. If the deadline is missed, a baby will lose eyesight. That is why it’s so important to conduct surgery as soon as possible.
The cost of the surgery of the VEGF inhibitor administering varies from 160,000 to 200,000 rubles.
If the deadline is missed, a baby will lose eyesight. That is why it’s so important to conduct surgery as soon as possible.
The hospital gives us only a few days to raise money, so it is extremely important for us to have already some amount of money in the current account. Then we will be sure that we will pay for the operation to the child. Now, unfortunately, the situation is such that we have to urgently knock on all the doors, ring the bells in an attempt to collect the required amount. These are very stressful and risky fees. Therefore, we would very much like you to pay us contributions in advance. This will be a serious and responsible approach that will allow us to more reliably and confidently close the problem with, alas, the payment operations for the introduction of a VEGF inhibitor in case of retinopathy of prematurity.!
Thanks for your help!
