Campaign Story

Nektarios is a baby of only 2 days old. Even though he is still inside his mother’s womb, whose name is Varithiami Maria, he has been diagnosed with complex congenital heart disease, which requires immediate heart surgery, since any delay could be fatal.   

A highly experienced pediatric heart surgeon has already agreed to perform the surgery pro bono, along with his team in a private clinic in Athens. However, the family stills needs to come up with 2,340 euros in order to pay for his hospitalization. Even though the clinic is not rushing them, they won’t be able to settle their medical bills without our support! 

Baby boy Nektarios is anxiously waiting to find his way into his mother’s arms. Let us all rescue this little fighter in every way that we possibly can!

    Within just 24 hours, we have managed to raise the amount required for the newborn baby Panagiotis –Nektarios!

    <p>The 3-day-old infant has been diagnosed with a severe congenital heart disease and he will be soon subjected to a heart surgery. The specialized pediatric heart surgeon will perform the surgery pro bono, while the private clinic will also cover a large part of the cost of his hospitalization. Since the baby had to be born in that specific clinic, in order to be immediately put in the NICU, the family had to bear additional expenses that were unable to pay. However, after joining forces we have managed- in just 24 hours- to help out this family by making sure that Nektarios will receive the medical care he needs.<br />
    On behalf of his family, we would like to kindly thank all of you for your immediate response. We sincerely hope that everything goes well so that the little guy will soon return into his mother’s arms!</p>

    Latest update on Nektarios: the new born baby who has been fighting for his life ever since he came into this world.

    <p>Baby boy Nektarios was born 10 days ago in a private clinic in Athens. He was immediately intubated and transferred to the NICU, where he remains till this day. The little fighter has been diagnosed with complex congenital heart disease even before he was born, while a highly experienced pediatric heart surgeon has already offered to perform his surgery pro bono. However, after the baby was born, he started to develop complications; therefore the doctors suggested that he remained in the NICU until he were stable enough in order to undergo the surgery that will save his life. Apart from the heart surgery, there is a chance that he will need to be subjected to additional surgeries on other vital organs. Thanks to your immediate response, we have managed to gather, within just 1 day, not only the sum that was initially required, but a total of 7,303,51 euros, which will be spent on his hospitalization and treatments, since he, as it turns out, has a long way ahead of him. The cost of his hospitalization for the next 2 months amounts to 5,500 euros and it has already been taken care of thanks to your defining contribution.<br />
    We will stand by this baby’s side for as long as it takes, hoping to hear a positive outcome from his doctors. Let us all pray that baby boy Nektarios soon recovers, so that his parents and his sister will finally be able to hold him in their loving arms.</p>

The baby boy has been discharged, while his condition will be closely monitored by his doctors.
