There are some stories in life that are so terrible – you just hope to find them untrue… But unfortunately, the story of a 2-year-old Maxim Abramov is a true story.
This tragedy happened in Russia earlier this year. Little Maxim was sleeping inside his crib when the fire broke out in his family’s apartment. Abandoned by his mother and with no one else nearby, the child was literally burning alive until the fire crew found him. Miraculously, he survived, suffering burns to nearly 40% of his body. In order to save his life, the doctors had to amputate both of his legs. Maxim went through six surgeries in total, and more are yet to come.
His mother, meanwhile, lost parental rights and was imprisoned for child neglect. Maxim has no one else to take care of him.
At present, he is in rehabilitation, awaiting the prosthesis procedure. The doctors will have to readjust his prosthetic devices every year until he stops growing.
We are asking you to consider helping Maxim. 100% of your contributions will go to cover his medical expenses – surgeries, prosthesis, medications, overall rehabilitation, and even child care. Your funds will be transferred via a reputable American organization.
