Dominik was born in a very serious condition. After birth he had two blood transfusions because of jaundice which was worsening. After a series of examinations at the University Children’s Hospital in Krakow – Prokocim it turned out that our son has Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency and non-spherocytic congenital hemolytic anemia.
These diseases are incurable because they are genetically determined. Therefore, Dominik has to have blood added once a month. Because of frequent transfusions, the level of ferritin in his body increases, which is a threat to a proper functioning of his organism.
Dominic attends class zero. Due to frequent stays in hospitals in the hematology ward and frequent infections of the upper respiratory system he rarely goes to school. It happens that we see sadness on his face, when he cannot play with his peers. As parents we want the best for your child and we believe that every card sent to Dominic will make him feel better.
Children’s happiness is the most important thing for each parent and Dream Post is a great example. We are confident that “DP” cheers him up a lot.
