Our daughter Marta was born on October 5th 2011. She suffers from a very rare genetic disorder – APERT SYNDROME, which causes premature fusion of cranial sutures, retruded midface, fused fingers and toes and various other problems.
When she was only 5 months old she has undergone a surgery closing her cleft palate in the Mother and Child Institute in Warsaw. Just two months later she had the first part of a two-stage skull surgery in Bogenhousen clinic in Munich, Germany. The procedure was performed in order to provide the necessary space for Marta’s brain to grow and develop normally. On September 2012 the second stage of the surgery has been completed, changing the craniofacial part of Marta’s skull. During this procedure the metal distractors which were extending her skull forwards for the past 3 months, were removed, also new bones were added creating previously underdeveloped brow ridge and nose base.
All this would be impossible without the help of many wonderful people!
Now our daughter needs another set of surgeries separating the fused fingers and toes. Already the “atypical” built of her palms and feet make it harder for Martusia to crawl and walk. The surgical intervention is indispensable for her normal development. The best place to perform this kind of surgical procedure is Wilhelmstift Clinic in Hamburg, Germany. The cost of a three stage surgery is about 30 000 euro.The cost of these procedures exceeds our financial capabilities, therefore we need your help! Each donated zloty/ dollar/ euro is a step forward towards Martusia’s better life!

LET’S GIVE MARTA A „HIGH FIVE”!
We know that Marta can have a normal life, function as all of her peers, go to school, fall in love. But to make it happen we have to give our Little Owl not only our heart and time but most of all we have to provide her with best possible medical care.
