Maxim Gavrilenco, the 11 years old boy who has been eating through a special tube for 5 years due to an accident, conquered his disease and now is able to eat by himself.
For 5 years Maxim has never known the taste of food, daily struggling with the consequences of his injury. But after the successful operation he had in Turkey, the boy is now able to enjoy life and eat like normal people do. We would like to express our special gratitude to the Istanbul clinic Medicalpark headed by Pelin Oguzkurt.
We remind you that Maxim accidentally drunk a chemical substance at the age of 6. Due to this, the boy’s esophagus was severely burned. And so as not to traumatize his internal organs even more, Maxim has been fed through a special tube for 5 years.
Add that the fourth edition of the annual “Maratonul de Crăciun” was for a charitable cause this year. All the money collected for registration fee, and also the voluntary contributions, were donated to Maxim’s Gavrilenco family.
