Katrīna Roze

It is hard to understand and decide how to act and whom to support – a family that has nothing to eat, but only because the parents are lazy and the only thing they do is complain about the difficult life and its injustice, or a family that seems to have everything except for the most important thing – the health of their child. To support a family that is struggling and looking for ways to help their child on their own, or a family that receives support from the state and non-governmental organizations, but does not appreciate it.

This is a story about a bright family with three daughters. A story about a family that right now is in need of financial support to pay for an urgent operation abroad so that little Katrīna would not stay confined to bed. The family is also looking for opportunities to receive state aid, but even if such aid is received, it will not fully cover the necessary amount.

Katrīna Roze is raised by a loving family, along with her two sisters. Katrīna is a copy of her mother – Jana, with beautiful brown eyes, dark hair and a fantastic smile that never leaves Katrīna's face despite the difficult situation.

The day is summery at last and we meet in the park, next to a playground, where Katrīna heroically pushes her rollator over the rough asphalt and giggles together with her sister about her mischief. Katrīna's smile and positivism could disarm anybody. She archly stares at the photographer and carefully becomes friends with us. Katrīna already knows how to read and write. Although the letters are not very neat, she is doing her best. Katrīna has an opinion about many things and situations. She is very clever and she will go to school next year. However, there is something that makes you hold back tears and admire Katrīna and her heroic parents.

Because of her serious diagnosis, Katrīna's legs and lower part of the body are paralysed since birth. Katrīna is currently 6 years old and during this time her parents have done an incredible job thanks to their persistence, so that Katrīna would not be a helpless child any more, but rather a child that is able to move on her own, to attend kindergarten together with her sisters and live a full life using orthoses and rollators. This has been achieved thanks to intensive therapy (physiotherapy, occupational therapy, pool, osteopathy, therapeutic horseback riding) and custom-made aids – orthoses. By opposing the order of things that is absurd sometimes, Katrīna's mum has not only received support for her own child, but also helped many other families.

Katrīna's legs have not acquired the necessary abilities to function completely independently yet, therefore it is not possible to put a full load on them. As a result, the femoral neck has degraded and broken. For Katrīna to continue developing and learning to walk (in the hope of avoiding a wheelchair) an urgent bone enhancement operation is needed, combined with an immediate reconstruction of orthoses, adapting them to the post-operative body geometry and properly loaded posture. Unfortunately, such a complex solution is currently not available in Latvia, and the closest place for carrying out such an operation is Munich, Germany. If the operation is not carried out as quickly as possible, the other femoral neck may degrade and Katrīna will no longer be able to walk.

Total costs of the operation constitute around EUR 26,800. The family could cover the travel and accommodation expenses, as well as post-operative rehabilitation from its own budget. The family is fully able to provide for itself and Katrīnas mum, Jana, tells us that they regularly provide for all rehabilitation, massage and other medical services themselves.


However, the aforesaid amount is too large for the family to collect during such a short time. It is not easy to ask for help, especially if you are a fighter, not a whiner, but Katrīna's health is more important than anything else, so the family and Palīdzēsim.lv (www.palidzesim.lv) ask you personally to help Katrīna so that the girl could go to Munich for the operation no later than in October.


Phone for donations: 90006888 (one call costs EUR 1.42)


THE AMOUNT STILL NECESSARY: + EUR 1968.28 (of EUR 20,940.39; 07.09.15.*)

The money for Katrīna’s operation has been raised!
We would like to sincerely thank all 544 donors who responded and donated funds for Katrīna’s urgent operation. Soon – on September 24 –, Katrīna will go to the operation, so that she can persistently continue the rehabilitation afterwards. We would also like to thank Air Baltic for flight tickets, which is a great support and contribution that allows using the donated money to cover the operations costs!
In case not all the money is spent on the operation, it will be used for Katrīna’s post-operative rehabilitation.
We will keep you updated, and we would like to ask to continue supporting Katrīna, because the road to her first step is still very long.

Good news! A new bill has been received from the Munich clinic. Operation costs are for almost EUR 6000 lower than initially stated! EUR 20,940.39 are necessary instead of EUR 26,800.

25.09.15. We have paid for the stay and operation for Katrīna at Germany- Schon Klinik, total amount EUR 20940, 39.


October 2015, letter from Katrīna’s mom:  

Katrīna Roze and our entire family want to express sincerest thanks to “Palīdzēsim.lv”, photographer Rolfs Vendiņš, Air Baltic, LMI Translations and anyone whose heart bled for Katrīna. Thank you for your donations, you have helped us take Katrīna to her hip surgery in Munich.

         We only got to spend 6 days in Germany – the operation was brief and very successful. The doctor immobilised the thighbone using 3 special bolts. Katrīna recovered from her operation very quickly and feels well. There was no need to use a cast for her hip, so Katrīna began her walking exercises on the following day. They let her take walks and enjoy the autumn weather. In Munich, we were able to consult with one of the best orthosis specialists in Germany. His advice and recommendations were adjusted in Estonia, optimising the orthosis solution for Katrina’s specific situation.

         Katrīna goes to kindergarten and is expecting to start school next autumn. During the post-op period, she has diligently continued her physiotherapy exercises, helping her strengthen and work out the necessary muscles. Since her thighbone was immobilised, Katrīna can start doing her walking workouts. In addition, physical therapists are working with all options available thanks to the orthosis, and are teaching her leg movements with non-immobilised hip joints. One day, she could not only walk with her orthosis, but also take a seat or get up, bend down, and even go upstairs all on her own! Of course, it will take her a lot more work and exercise.

            Our family and Karīna Roze are extremely happy that she can start learning to walk once again!

Janis Cers




We are meeting Jancis at the Annels playground. The boy is fond of bright colours, he lively observes everything happening around him while he is sitting in his father’s lap. Jānis is 4 years and 7 months old and like any respectable boy is weighting already 13 kg. His mother says that it will soon be difficult to hold him in arms and he will have to stand himself.

Jancis loves to be with his father, the boy feels most safe in his father’s lap. His mother tells that while his father is at work, Jančuks is missing him a lot. The father lifts Jancis up, dandles him, and the boy loves this and a charming smile appears on his face.

His mother tells that Jancis was born as a healthy child, he started to learn how to eat, hold a spoon, sit, roll sideways, utter his first sounds, and then several diseases progressed suddenly at the same time – organic brain damage with cerebral atrophy, epilepsy and other diseases, which caused movement and eating problems.

Doctors forecast 1.5 years, but Jancis is already 4 years old! His parents admit that the first years were the hardest ones, because the boy did not respond to anything. Also his face was sad. But things are different now, the boy is smiling and his eyes are sparkling. His parents believe – our Jancis will walk!

The parents have achieved a lot thanks to their persistence and zeal. Several times a year the family goes to Russia, where doctors help Jančuks using different methods. In the neighbouring country, the family also visits local healers for popular methods, which give results together with medicine. While we are talking, a photographer is photographing and Jančuks is sitting quietly with his father, is listening and sits for the photographer from time to time.

His parents tell that they have money for medicines and all essential things. The main thing they need now are new orthoses, which have to be ordered in spring, because the boy is growing very quickly. The new orthoses will bent in knees and Jancis will be able to start making steps. The boy’s current orthoses teach him to stand and keep his balance, and also help his legs not to deform.

While we are talking, the mother of Jancis says: “Let’s put on Your astronaut’s suit!”. She puts orthoses on this legs and a special brace around his body, and Jancis stands on his small feet. His face shows that he is lively, proud and has a fighting spirit. His parents are pleasantly surprised that Jancis is not afraid of the camera flash, because fast flashes of light usually startle him.

We can be guardian angels of Jancis and help to collect money for his new orthoses to help the boy make his first steps! Physiotherapy and remedial gymnastic procedures are also very necessary to strengthen his muscles.

The amount required is 1600 euro.


Phone for donations: 90006888 (one call costs EUR 1.42)

THE AMOUNT STILL NECESSARY: EUR 1570 (from EUR 1600; 20.01.15*)

* We will be regularly updating the list of donators and the amount of the provided help
* We will regularly inform about the exact use of the donations

Gustavs



20.11.2014.
Photo: Ivo Blūms

Gustavs and his girlfriend Anete welcomed us positive and smiling, as if they were staying in a resort hotel instead of a rehabilitation centre :). Gustavs says that one has to live further, looking into the future, rather than the past…

Gustavs seriously engaged in bicycle motocross or BMX already when he was 9. He had great plans in relation to BMX – going to Olympic Games; however, two years ago, during one of the trainings he experienced a heavy fall, broke neck vertebra, and seriously damaged the spinal cord, which resulted in partial paralysis of the body, affecting both arms and legs.

Gustavs tells: “A bit different life started. Rehabilitation courses in “Vaivari” and Estonia. At first, I had to recover from the injury, then – to increase the load and train to the extent possible. My arms are moving, yet a lot is still to be done, triceps muscles have to be improved to facilitate the movement in a wheelchair and a special lying-down wheelchair.”

Gustavs is intended to have a surgery with Swedish specialists to improve the functions of arms; however, there is still a long way to it; many rehabilitation courses and hard work before and after the surgery.
However, none of this scares Gustavs. This summer already, he proved that it was possible to return to the professional sport by means of hard work, only in a bit different way – by using a lying-down wheelchair. 
Gustavs is planning to receive a driver’s licence and learn to drive a car. Of course, such a vehicle costs a lot, as does all the special equipment required for people with movement disorders. For instance, a fork necessary for Gustavs to eat costs EUR 20(!).

Gustavs continues his studies at Ulbroka Secondary School. The school created a ramp especially for 
Gustavs, while the rural municipality adapted his place of residence to his needs. Gustavs expresses his gratitude for the car presented by responsive people, allowing him to drive into a car while sitting in a wheelchair. A lying-down wheelchair was purchased for the funds donated by compassionate people as well. 

Gustavs is thinking about education. At first, he wants to finish school well, and then he might think of obtaining further education.

Gustavs receives great support from his family, girlfriend Anete, friends, and BMX team!

Gustavs says: “Thanks to the support provided by friends and society, a lot has already been done, yet there is still a long road ahead. I want to return to life for real”.
