Tolik has hypertension-hydrocephalic syndrome. He has been disabled since childhood. As a result of the operation, a shunt with a pump is installed at the base of the skull, and a tube passes through the entire body, through which excess fluid exits the head. Tolik and my mother leads an active lifestyle: several times a week they attend sports classes in a rehabilitation center, attend classes with a teacher and go to church on Sundays. Their life is full of love and joy. They are role models for many families and have a large number of friends. Together we are strength, says Tolika's mother.
