As remarked previously, “help is on the way,” yes! Nathalie and her husband have found a doctor willing to take Dani for medical consultation. Dr. Marsha has kindly agreed to see him. That will be on Friday, March 28, in the Korean Hospital. Hanna will go along with Dani and Nathalie, and we are all hopeful.
I have been lately thinking about Dani, and our long walks from the Special Needs rooms at the orphanage to the Babies pavilion. I remember the many times Dani greeted and cheered other kids and staff during our walks, screaming of happiness, sometimes, and laughing and singing others. I can only imagine how blissful he will feel once he learns that he is going out on Friday, for a drive with Hanna and Nathalie. I would love to see his face.
Kristiina, there are still people supporting in different ways to Dani’s cure. Many of them relatives, friends, and colleagues, but some are just people touched by the intention of this assistance. They express the joy they feel while learning about Dani, and they engage emotionally in the aid. Some have told me their stories about their sick kids, and have asked me whether their disease is Dandy-Walker syndrome. To which, I can only explain what I learned. Some others have asked what else can they do to support, in addition to the financial contribution. I cannot really say much if they are not physically in Addis, but I suggested them to spread awareness about Dandy-Walker syndrome, and perhaps share this story, the story of the many of us engaged in curing Dani.
Pupunen, I will leave you for now, because I know there are many important people there who want to meet you, and I will keep you posted about Dani’s prognosis on Friday.
Help is here!
