Friends, please meet little Boris (aka Borya).
Even before he was born doctors suspected he will have major health issues and most likely will die soon after his birth.
He started having seizures shortly after entering into this world. He spent first 18 months of his life in hospitals without proper diagnoses, and with his seizures worsening. Last year after his heart stopped beating, he had an emergency surgery on his brain. He pulled through and severe seizures had stopped.
That lifesaving surgery had major side effects on Borya’s health. The movement on the right side of his body is impacted and so are most of his core muscles. He has to re-learn and catch up big time and he is working so hard at it.
He needs a specialty stander that could be adjusted to different angles to accommodate his physical therapy goals being upright for 40 minutes 3-4 times per day. Plus being upright as opposite to horizontal all the time will open up new experiences for this little guy.
We will try very hard to procure a gently used refurbished stander to cut down on cost. With purchase and shipping we are hoping to get it done at under $4,500.
