Help give our ‘angel’ chance of normal life

THE parents of a “little angel” have issued a heart-rending plea for help...to give their child a chance of being able to walk, run and play like any other youngster of her age.

Solvita Kadzyte’s parents have already remortgaged their Beckton house to pay for revolutionary treatment to allow her to walk on her own. But after using up all their funds they still need to raise the �20,000 to continue with the treatment.

Solvita, four, was diagnosed with a debilitating brain condition after her parents noticed her development was slower than expected when she was six-months-old.

Specialists at the Great Ormond Street Hospital confirmed their worst fears — Solvita suffers from Cerebellum Hypoplasia, a rare mobility condition.

Her mother Ineta told the Recorder : “It was the worst day of my life. I just don’t remember how I drove home.”

Father Marius said: “Our first reaction when the doctor told us that she would be different from other children, you know, you can’t explain what I was feeling.”

Looking after Solvita has become Ineta’s full time job as she needs help to walk, dress, and feed herself. The couple who live in Partridge Square, in Beckton with their elder daughter Eva, helped Solvita with a range of treatments including physiotherapy, speech therapy and swimming.

When they found out about revolutionary stem cell research in China which is currently unavailable in the UK, they remortgaged the family home to pay for the first bout of treatment in July this year.

Ineta said: “When she came back from the treatment, she was much, much stronger. Now she tries to walk for herself, sometimes she makes four steps herself. I hope, no, I know that in the future, she will be walking herself and we won’t see any difference from another child.”

Now they need �20,000 to pay for the next part of the treatment in March this year.

So far, the couple have raised �4,605 from friends, family, and donations from Marius’ building firm.

But now, Solvita’s future depends on the kindness of strangers and the family have been leafleting and campaigning on the internet for help.

Marius said: “Even if it’s 50p or 20p it’s going to make a difference. England is not a country of 2 or 3 million people, it has 60 million so maybe one person will say to another one and another one to the next one and it will go on and on.”
