Fabullo is a three year old boy from Orio Canavese. He was born with a serious cardiac illness. To keep him alive he has needed two operations. After the second he had a cerebral ischemia. He became like a vegetable. !6 months have gone by. Now, even though he has spastic tetraplegic cerebral palsy, he can interact with people and move his head. However he canít move from one place to another, or move his body or sit up or turn over in bed.
Itís possible that with the right treatment, Fabullo could return to normal. But treatment has a cost. Money is what makes the difference for the happiness of a child and his family. Fabullo has been examined by Dr. Bifulco of Therapies4kids (Florida) who gave his family some hope. The cost of an initial period of 3 monthís treatment is 120,000 dollars. To do this he should be setting off with his mother on 17 October.
Letís help Fabullo with a donation.

Fabullo is not alone. There are many children in Italy who go abroad to find treatments that they canít get here. The story of the journey of hope is repeated each time, with a collection that relies on the good nature of the people.
Whereís the State? Whatís the use of our taxes, if they canít save our children? 120,000 dollars is the salary of any old third-rate local cabinet member. Italy of waste is also the Italy of those who are abandoned.
Letís help Fabullo run around in a meadow. Iíll keep you informed.
