Kuba got one point in Apgar scale - he weighed only 540 grammes, which is the same as half a packet of sugar! He could not breathe on his own, and he had to be aspirated until he began breathing independently at 6 months old. The equipment used to save little Kuba's life was all marked with the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity heart stickers.
Kuba required complex therapy and rehabilitation - he exercised his speech and his parents worked hard with therapists and teachers to improve his skills. Now he is the life of every game - playing with his friends and enjoying his free time!
