When Colic Turns Deadly

Born with a hernia, two-year-old Ruslan was in constant pain. Knowing that even a mild case of colic could kill their little boy, his gypsy parents despaired–how they could ever afford the surgery he needed? Read Transcript


Reporter: HE IS ONLY

TWO YEARS OLD, BUT HAS

SUFFERED WITH A PAINFUL

HERNIA FOR A YEAR AND A

HALF.

WITHOUT SURGERY, HE COULD

DEVELOP GANGRENE OR ANY

NUMBER OF PROBLEMS THAT

COULD KILL HIM.

SOMETIMES I CAN'T EVEN

FEED MY CHILDREN.

THERE IS NO WAY WE COULD

EVER AFFORD A SURGERY FOR

OUR SON.

WE ARE NOT EDUCATED, BUT MY

HUSBAND WORKS VERY HARD.

HE DID CONSTRUCTION FOR A

WHOLE MONTH, BUT WAS ONLY

PAID $100.

I KNOW THAT ONLY GOD CAN

HELP US.

SO I PRAY.

Reporter: WHEN CBN

ORGANIZED A MEDICAL OUTREACH

TO HER VILLAGE.

VERA IMMEDIATELY BROUGHT

RUSLON TO SEE OUR DOCTORS.

WE KNEW HOW SERIOUS HIS

CONDITION WAS.

EVEN SOMETHING HAS MILD AS

COLLICK COULD CAUSE HIS

HERNIA TO BECOME MORE

SERIOUS.

Reporter: WE PAID FOR

RUSLON TO HAVE HIS SURGERY.

HE WAS IN PAIN CONSTANTLY

BEFORE, BUT NOW HE IS VERY

HAPPY.

THAT MAKES ME HAPPY, TOO.

MY HUSBAND CRIED WHEN HE SAW

THAT OUR SON WAS FREE FROM

PAIN.

Reporter: BEFORE WE

LEFT, WE GAVE VERA A WASHING

MACHINE TO MAKE HER LIFE

JUST A LITTLE BIT EASIER.

WE HELPED HER PLOW HER SMALL

GARDEN AND GAVE HER SEEDS

AND POTATOES TO FEED HER

SMALL FAMILY.

NO ONE HAS EVER HELPED US

AS MUCH AS YOU YOU HAVE.

I THANK GOD AND EVERYONE WHO

HAS HELPED US.
