To dance together holding his wife in his arms. This is a dream cherished by a serviceman with a “Taxi driver” call sign. Still this idea cannot be realized yet because of the guy’s problematic arm injury.
In 2014 Volodymyr went to the front. He served in the Dnipro-1 Battalion and later in the 25th Separate Airborne Brigade. On the 6th of March, 2017 he got wounded in a military operation between Horlivka and Zaitseve.
A 120-mm mine deployed by terrorists had exploded near Volodymyr. As a result, he got numerous wounds, among which the arm is the worst. But his orthopedic traumatologist is sure that the torn-off part of the bone can be grown and implanted.
The participants of the Bioengineering Rehabilitation for Wounded project have taken up to Volodymyr Shevryn’s treatment. The project’s mission is to help the soldiers wounded in the ATO zone through growing bones for their injured limbs from their own stem cells. This technology allows to avoid amputation. Ukrainian defenders’ treatment is funded on the account of money raised from donations within the People’s Project Volunteer Centre’s programs.
“Vova needs 600, 000 UAH total. We’ve already raised 200K. His friends, other volunteer organizations and his comrades, – everybody contributed their shares. He’s just about to start treatment, but we can tell about his state quite definitely. I’m sure he’s fine! Because as other soldiers joke, even the walls seem to have a healing effect here!” – says Maxim Ryabokon, coordinator at the People’s Project Volunteer Centre.
The paratrooper is backed by his family of son, daughter and wife. They have been together with Olesya over the three difficult years of war. The couple believes they will be able to waltz more than once, like on their wedding day. With Volodymyr embracing his Olesya with both arms…
Earlier the People’s Project reported that the 30th Separate Mechanized Brigade’s soldier got a new bone grown and implanted instead of a crashed one. The fighter got lucky to avoid amputation thanks to people’s donations and Ukrainian biotechnologists’ unique skills.
Unfortunately, the authorities still do not support these bioengineering technologies of rehabilitation of wounded. Instead, the guys are offered amputation. That is why we ask Ukrainians to support our fighters’ recovery. Even sharing this information, you contribute in finding people willing and able to help. And good always returns!
