The money for the treatment (35 832.25 GBP) have been raised by the viewers of Channel One and readers of Rusfond. We must now raise 4225 GBP to cover the costs of accommodation in London, the other household expenses and everyday medical items such as catheters.
Danil was born with a severe malformation. He had an open abdominal wall, so his bladder was on the outside, he had no urethra or a sphincter muscle and his urine was constantly dripping out. My son underwent a number of serious operations but they didn't seem to help because the hole in his stomach did not heal. We were at our wits end... and then you came to the rescue! You helped to raise the money and pay for a unique surgery at a hospital abroad. In December last year, our tiny son underwent a reconstructive surgery of the genitourinary system in London. The surgeon created a neck of the bladder, a urethra, closed up the hole in the stomach and even made a belly button! Now, the time has come for a medical examination , moreover, there is another small operation ahead. We would like to ask you to help us pay for the treatment as we can't afford to do so. I am still on maternity leave and we live off my husband's income. Danil's life has changed greatly, he is growing up and maturing and we believe that he has a healthy future ahead of him. Please help us to finish the treatment!

Paediatric urological consultant at the Portland Hospital, Professor Imran Mushtaq (London, United Kingdom): 'The Kelly procedure (reconstructive surgery) was a success. Danil has a small fistula on the back of the penis. I strongly recommend for the patient to come to London for examination. Here, we will carry out an ultrasonic examination, will test using radio pharmaceuticals, will assess the renal blood flow and will attempt to close up the mouth of the fistula'.
