We are raising funds to get non-surgical treatment far from home to help Anja in her battle against Scoliosis. With a 50 degree curve, she will need drastic, painful surgery without your support for Just4Children.
Anja is fighting to prevent her ribcage from crushing her heart and lungs. This is a life and death battle for one little 12 year old girl from Co Cork. She is the only soldier in this war and cannot do it on her own. She needs you!
She needs treatment in the only centre in the world that offers her the chance of avoiding this horrific future without having surgery. She needs to go to California for intensive treatment every 4 months. This means flights, accommodation, top specialists and equipment to continue her work at home. She needs to go now before she grows even one more centimetre.
Anja’s life has been hard. She has overcome challenges again and again. She survived for 9 months in an inner city orphanage with only basic care. It was after she was adopted at 9 months of age that Anja learned to lift her head.
The trials didn’t stop there. 4 years ago Anja nearly lost her mother to ovarian cancer. The family is safe and happy but in financial straits. They need your help.
