Margo is 11 years old this year.
Her mother Lara writes: “Margo was born extremely premature on the 26th week, weighed only 770 grams (1.7 Ibs). During her first months, Margo experienced nearly all the typical horrors of severely premature children: a severe hemorrhage in her brain, two whole-body inflammatory states, retinal pathology and almost a complete hearing loss. On repeated occasions she was on the verge of death. At the neonatal intensive care unit, they gently asked: Maybe you should let her go rather than make her live such a miserable life. However, Margo still struggled and we have made a decision to struggle with her.
Today Margi has excellent grades and will go next year to 5th grade in a regular Israeli school. She runs and jumps, dances and sings, avidly reads encyclopedias and fairy tales, speaks two languages and started learning English, tries to play the guitar- with no fingers on one of her hands(!) and is mathematically gifted.”
Lara wrote book about her everyday struggle to give her daughter a normal and happy life.
Many people who read Lara’s notes in Live Journal in Russian asked her to translate this book to English.
For this purpose Margo’s family is raising money.
Support this campaign on IndieGoGo and probably this book will help to another families with the same problems.
