January 2019: Joshua

Dear sponsors and friends,

today we contact you on behalf of Joshua.

Our Joshua complains already since a while about pain in his left hip. It appears now that he suffers from an epiphysiolysis of the head of femur, also named juvenile osteochondrosis of head of femur.

This can lead to an insufficient blood supply and necrotizing of the bone. This malposition needs to be corrected and fixed most urgently

Since the result is quite pronounced and most notably already older, the medical care is presumably relatively difficult. It cannot be presumed that the malposition can easily be corrected and fixed with anaesthesia. In fact, it must be assumed that a complex adjustment with removal of bone wedges and sophisticated bolting etc. is required. Therefore, we are looking for a physician respectively clinic in Germany where Joshua can be operated.

In case you have a possibility to help Joshua, kindly get in touch:

infoatkenia-hilfe [dot] com or by telephone:
Mobile: +49 (0) 172 - 876 2666 (Marcel Dürr)
Office: +49 (0) 7300 - 91 90 09

Thank you very much – ASANE SANA –

Your team of Projekt Schwarz-Weiß e.V.
