Ten year old Mateusz was born with a complex heart defect. In his short life he already went through many long and complicated surgeries, lengthy stays in hospital and painful tests. From the very first day of his life Mateusz goes through more pain and stress than many adults could ever stand. Despite all of that he fights for every single day.
He’s exceptionally smart and cheerful, always curious about the world and people. His biggest dream is to have his heart “fixed”. He gives us, parents, great love and strength to keep fighting for his life. Since 2009 Mateusz is treated in Germany – only there no one refused to help and gave us chance. Despite all of the surgeries Mateusz’s condition is still deteriorating. His arteries, aorta and coronary arteries are not developing properly. Dysfunction of sinus node (natural pacemaker), additional heart muscle cramps and premature ventricular depolarization result in abnormal heart rhythm and cardiac decompensation. Our son is getting more and more tired and the heart defect threatens his life. A long and costly treatment awaits, but unfortunately it is out of our reach. Another surgery in Germany is due in October, therefore we ask for help and support.
Your help is priceless for which Mateusz thanks.
Mateusz with parents.
