At the age of 1,5 Ksenia was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, spastic diplegia and lower paraparesis. Unfortunately, by the age of 8 the girl almost entirely lost her ability to walk. Many doctors in Russia, which Ksenya’s mother was addressing, were telling her that her daughter would stay the rest of her life on a wheelchair. Thanks to the charitable foundation “Neopalimaya Kupina” and its director Mrs. Irina Chuvikina, Ksenya and her mom were able to come to Greece for treatment.
In March 2017 Ksenia underwent surgery to have bilateral release of gracilis muscle, lengthening of intravascular muscles and bilateral lengthening of Achilles tendon operation.
After a few months Ksenya and her mother came for a second rehabilitation programme in order to preserve and improve her results. They are planning to return to Greece again.
