"YOU GIVE ME VITALITY" SAYS DASHA'S MOTHER LOOKING AT HER DAUGHTER AND REMEMBERING ALL SHE HAD TO GO THROUGH TO SAVE HER CHILD

Little Dasha from Narofominsk is 5 years old. Recently, the girl and her parents have returned from Israel, where the kid underwent a difficult surgery on her feet. She has gone through several surgeries of this kind since her birth. Dasha’s diagnosis reads as "congenital multiple arthrogryposis". This disease is characterized by multiple distortions and dislocations of joints.

Dasha’s mother suffered from a bad biopsy during her pregnancy. The amniotic fluid moved and as a result the baby had to develop in almost dry environment. The girl could have died, but she desperately fought for life. She was born with serious pathologies: sprains of both hip joints of last degree, a dislocation of the knee joint, valgus deformity of the left foot. Russian doctors were unable to help her, they just didn't know what to do and couldn't find an explanation for such dislocations, because the child was genetically healthy. It was a unique case.

It was only in Israel where Dasha received a treatment. Dr. Staker made her a new knee, which at birth was twisted in the opposite direction. The operation was divided into several stages and finally 3.5-year-old girl began to walk, learned to walk.

In spring 2016 the ABSOLUT-HELP charitable foundation paid 400 000 rubles for the final surgery. It was necessary to remove the metal plates from Dasha’s legs and save her from lameness.


The plates were installed 5 years ago during one of the first operations to get the femur fused. They were successfully removed and now Dasha can even dance. She does not go to the preschool, but attends preparatory classes for future pupils.

Dasha is patient and strong, she draws a lot, loves classical music and has already decided that when she grows up, she will cure young children, like the good doctor who saved her from the wheelchair.
