I, Roman and Kasia are the parents of our 4 year old daughter Julia, born on June 13, 2010.

Our daughter had a horrible accident which happened on August 13, 2014. She fell out of our 4th floor apartment building window in Mississauga on Lake Shore Blvd. She pushed out the mesh screen that was installed in the window and fell out on the ground. The emergency units came right away and rushed her to the local hospital. Then right away she was transferred to Sick Kids Hospital downtown Toronto. She was listed as in critical condition for 3 days. She had several life threatening injuries. She couldn't breathe on her own, had internal bleeding from her liver and her spleen, collapsed lung on the right side, and multiple fractures to her upper spine, hips on both sides, and her shoulder. She was on life support, was kept sedated, and in an induced coma for a few days to prevent her from any kind of movement, with a breathing tube in her mouth down to her throat, and a tube through her nose down to her stomach. She was in an intensive care unit for several days. She has a burst vertebrae in her upper spine that is most significant, which is the T3 disk that burst the liquid and is located behind the neck. She also has a couple of other fractures on her upper spine. She has multiple thoracic and cervical spine fractures , right clavicle and scapula fractures as well liver and splenic laceration.

She is now in a cast from her ankles up to her chest and wearing a neck brace, and will stay in them for several weeks until all heals. She has troubles sleeping, eating and drinking, and she gets very angry that she can't move and she still doesn't realize what has happened to her and why is she like that.

Our beautiful, sweet daughter Julia was a very happy full of life little girl before her horrible accident happened... Now she doesn't even smile anymore. It is very sad, yet she is such a miracle child to have survived such an unfortunate accident!

Once Julia's cast and neck brace will be removed she will require a lot of physiotherapy treatments and extensive and lengthily rehabilitation. Unfortunately, it will cost a lot of money and is not covered by OHIP and we do not have any insurance coverage. Due to financial difficulties our savings have depleted and we do not have any more money saved since I am the only one working for my family.

We are kindly asking for your help and support for our daughter who needs it from all the kind, caring and considerate people like you. Our Julia needs all the support she can get for her therapy so she can again be a happy, energetic and playful little girl, full of life and positive energy, and be able to fully walk, move, play, and dance once again, like she used to have.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping our little angel. Roman and Kasia
