Big Dreams Children’s Foundation is currently hosting Phil and Dennis from the Dmitrov orphanage. Both boys are getting medical treatments at the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.
Phil is a 14 year old boy with arthogryposis, a condition with congenital joint contractures. Due to his condition Phil is partially immobile and cannot operate his manual wheelchair. He hardly ever leaves the orphanage. Here at Big Dreams, we believe in a more fulfilling life for Phil. We are certain that his condition permits significant improvements in his quality of life and highly experienced specialists at TSRH can accomplish that.
Dennis is a 20 year old young man who has suffered serious burn injuries at the age of 10. He was very lucky to survive, however his life has changed forever. His both arms had to be amputated. His left leg got severely injured and deformed. Here at the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children Dennis underwent a surgery for his left leg in order to save his joints from irreversible damage.
At this point we are still raising funds to cover the cost of the custom power wheelchair for Phil that will make a big difference in his quality of life. It will allow Phil to leave the orphanage to go on occasional field trips with other children.
