PLN 600,000 raised to help sick boy from Gdańsk

And finally, a campaign to help a young boy from Gdańsk who is ill with muscular atrophy has raised over PLN 600,000. The plight of Olaf was featured on Radio Gdańsk’s „SOS Report” last week, helping to raise awareness of his condition and situation. Muscular dystrophy is a genetic disease that affects the muscles of the body including the heart, seeing them waste away over time and leading to disability and eventually to premature death. Treatment is extremely expensive and a total of PLN 15 million needs to be raised in order to fund the needed gene therapy that will help him recover. You can find links to the fund-raising sites on the Radio Gdańsk website, in the English News section.
