  • Fundraising goal: endovascular operation
Fundraising is over
Meet the child
Dear friends! Thanks to your help funds for Georgiy Mundra to undergo a endovascular surgery at the neurosurgery clinic in Duisburg were raised. The operation was successful. Doctors say that at the moment complete embolization is not possible and, as an alternative treatment they recommend Georgiy a course of stereotactic radiotherapy, which will be performed in two stages at the clinic of Duisburg (Germany). This treatment is vital for Georgiy. The amount claimed for the collection includes the cost of treatment, payment for the services of an interpreter, flights and transfer. Please help Georgiy to realize his plans for the future.

The video about Georgy was shown on ONT TV channel (Belarus) on April 19, 2012. The author is Tatiana Zhakhovskaya.

Parents' Letter (February 14, 2012)

Dear Chance Foundation!

I'll try to tell you about my son's life briefly. Georgy was born on May 2, 1997. He is a much longed-for child and has been making us happy since his very first days. Georgy's curiosity and intelligence has always made us proud. He always tried to achieve more. Georgy attended classes in Eastern martial arts and swam. In 2005 he enrolled in the Art school. 

His health problems started when he turned 12, in 2009. Convulsions, pseudoepileptic seizures and slurred speech set in. Our neurologist recommended to hospitalize Georgy.

On February 10, 2010 the first embolisation of cerebral arteriovenous malformation (AVM) was succesfully performed.

On September 1, 2010 the second embolisation was performed. Unfortunately, it resulted in permanent blindness in the left eye: during the operation part of the composite material got into the bloodflow and blocked the artery supplying the ophthalmic nerve. Now my child is disabled.

In December 2012 Georgy was examined and another embolisation was recommended, this time with ONYX substance. The previous operations were conducted with the use of HYSTACRYL — a substance which dissolves in a while, making the number of required follow-up operations uncertain. And with each embolisation the chances of complications increase. ONYX is not registered in the Republic of Belarus, though in Israel and Germany it has been successfully used for quite a long time now. 

Despite all the hardships and painfulness of the treatment, Georgy is a good student. Actually, he is allowed not to attend school and be taught at home, but whenever he feels good, Georgy comes to classes. He leads an active life and likes to spend time with his friends.

Embolisations with ONYX are succesfully performed in Israel and Germany. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to pay for the operation.
Please, help my son!
