Date of birth: 10th March, 2015

Location: Zolotyi Potik (Ternopil region) Ukraine

Diagnosis: Acute viral encephalitis.

Urgent Need: 725,000 UAH ( $25,892) to purchase a vagus nerve stimulator for Sofia.

Diagnosis: Acute viral encephalitis of cytomegalovirus and hermetic etiology.

Symptoms: Cerebral edema, stupor, frequent seizures, involuntary cessation of breath and paralysis of the body at the time of the attack.


In December 2018, Siverska Svetlana Mikhailovna, the mother of three-year-old Sophia, contacted "HOLY MOTHER TERESA" charitable foundation with a request to help acquire a stimulating nerve device for her daughter. The cost of the vagus nerve stimulator is 725,000.00UAH (Seven hundred and twenty-five thousand hryvnia) or $ 25,892.00 (twenty-five thousand eight hundred and ninety-two US dollars).

Little Sofia Siverska was born on the 3rd of October,2015. She lives with her parents in Zolotyi Potik village of Buchatskiy district, Ternopil region. In August 2018, her parents consulted the Children's Neurosurgeons together with Canadian Doctors in the Lviv City Children's Clinical Hospital.

Concilially, it was decided that in order to improve the quality of life of the child and achieve full or partial control over the convulsions, the child needs an urgent operation to install a vagus stimulator. Doctors can perform the operation for free, but the cost of the stimulator itself is very high.

Sophia fell ill for the first time on June 8th, 2015 (at three months of age).When the fever rose, antibiotics administered, but it progressed into cramps 4 days later. Further resuscitation was carried out along with Brain MRI but the result came out very scary( it showed it was the struggle for life) and was immediately placed on reanimation for two weeks. Thank God the child lives, but its result remains; the child does not sit, does not walk, does not speak, does not take anything in her hands.

After long days in the department of neurology, trips around Ukraine to specialists who understand this field, the parents of little Sophia finally found in Kiev, an Immunologist-neurologist Physician, one Dr Maltsev D.V. There, little Sophia was treated but it was very expensive. Monthly treatment was about 70-80 thousand hryvnia, this included anticonvulsant, antiviral, immune system boosting, feeding and nervous system medications.

There the parents treated the child up to a year. Later, Svetlana, Sophia’s mother, saw that there was no result as such and consulted with other specialists. The child was taken to a private neurologist for treatment in Lviv.

Therefore, for these three years, the child took a lot of drugs everyday (drugs for the main disease and also other medicines to rehabilitate against the side effects). Now, in order to save the life of Sofia, it is necessary to buy and install a vagus nerve stimulator which should help relieve the seizures and help the child with normal development.

But the price of this stimulator for the parents of little Sophia living in the region of Ternopil, in a small urban-type village is very large and transcendental. It is the sum of 725,000.00 uah (seven hundred and twenty-five thousand hryvnia) or $ 25,892.00 (twenty-five thousand, eight hundred and ninety-two dollars ). The greatest request and desire of Sophia's parents is that their daughter be healthy. Sophia's parents thank everyone who can help raise funds for the acquisition of the vagus nerve stimulator.

The charitable foundation "HOLY MOTHER TERESA" joins the request of Sofia's parents and pled with everyone not to be indifferent but help in acquiring this stimulating nerve device for their child. We appreciate everyone who gives towards this in advance.
