A US hospital will examine Jennet Bazarova in November
On August 8th, on our website, we published the story of ten-year-old Jennette Bazarova from Moscow. She suffers from brittle bone disease - her bones break very easily. After another crack in her elbow her right hand stopped bending.
Doctors from the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia say Jennette needs accurate molecular imaging in order to figure out the best way to help her. But the Bazarov family doesn’t have the resources to pay for the molecular imaging. ($16,560). We are happy to say that the Russian Aid Foundation has raised the funds for Jennette. Rusfond USA will cover the costs of living expenses and support for Jennette and her mother in America. Their doctor appointments are scheduled for mid-November. Jennette’s family is very grateful to everyone who has helped. Please accept our appreciation as well.
A Very Rare Disease
Accurate molecular imaging and treatment in Philadelphia can save Jennette Bazarova’s life
Jennette Bazarova, 10 years old, suffers from brittle bone disease and pathological bony overgrowth. She needs to undergo medical examination and treatment in the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, USA. Total cost $16,560.
Our daughter was diagnosed with this disease right after she was born. Jennette suffers from a rare form of the disease – even small joint fissures turn into callus looking like tumor. It restrains hands and feet movements and causes pain. Our family used to live in Turkmenistan, Turkmenian doctors recognized their powerlessness at once and sent us to Moscow where our struggle for the daughter’s health and life got started. A year ago we moved to Moscow to be closer to the doctors. Another fissure in the elbow joint resulted in inability of the right hand to bend. Surgical interventions had been contraindicated but we had to choose between shoulder joint atrophy and risk. We took a risk, but good results changed to a relapse. Now Jennette cannot bend her right hand because of a large tumor. Her hip joints are malformed, the right leg is shorter than the left one. Jennette is being moved in a wheelchair but she is not giving up. We have a tight schedule: school, swimming pool, English studies, sport dances in a wheelchair, but even Moscow doctors cannot cure the fast growing tumors. One of American children’s hospitals is ready to help us but we don’t have money to pay for the treatment,’ says Svetlana Bazarova, the girl’s mother, Moscow, Russia.
USD 16,560 is required to save Jennette Bazarova, a 10-year-old girl.
Natalia Belova, Professor, Head of Pediatric Department, European Medical Center (EMC), Moscow: ‘Jennette has a V-type of imperfect osteogenesis, a very rare form of the disease. Unfortunately, ways of treatment of bony overgrowth occurring in such patients are not known in Russia. Accurate molecular imaging identifying the related genic defect can facilitate selection of targeted therapy and special rehabilitation. Doctors of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, USA, are ready to perform the required diagnostics.”
The Hospital invoiced the Bazarovs for USD 16,560 but the family doesn’t have such amount of money.
