Katya, a little girl from Akhterka, Sumy State, Ukraine. Little Katya was the crystallization of the love of her parents. Her father was an auto repair worker at the auto repair shop. Her mother was a sewing worker. The little girl was very smart, lovely and also naughty. Like all parents, they were looking forward to Katya’s healthy and happy growth. Her father told us that Katya began to walk when she was only one year old. She once fell off the stairs, but nothing happened.
In October 2016, the little girl and her parents ran into a drunk driver on the way home. Due to the fast speed, the misfortune happened in this family. Because of this accident, Katya’s mother sewed 20 stitches on her forehead, while little Katya was only 1 year and 4 months, she almost lost the chance of survival. What was worse, the driver of the accident still did not get a punishable punishment. Many doctors were reluctant to do any treatment for Katya. As they thought her life was hopeless. Thanks for god, Dr Baville was willing to try to save Katya, and the stubborn little Katya was miraculously resurrected with Dr Baville’s help. However, the car accident caused T1-T2 spinal cord injury. She can not live as before. Instead of walking, she can only lie on the bed or baby carriages. In order to get fully treatment, Katya’s parents actively sought major media and fundations for help as they were lack of money.
One day in August 2017, Katya’s mother learned about stem cell treatment could help Katya through the fundraiser and met one mother of the cerebral palsy who was ever accepted three times stem cell treatment in our hospital. After that, they actively tried all means to raise money for stem cell treatment. On November 13, 2017, Katya and her parents and Dr Baville came to Beijing to receive stem cell treatment. During the treatment period, Dr Cheng communicated with Dr Baville for details of Katya’s conditions and treatment. Little Katya became more lively and lovely after treatment. Her appetite increased greatly. We expect that stem cell can bring Katya more miracle of life!
