The story of little Sebastian has traveled all over Slovakia. The boy has been struggling with health problems since birth. He fails to breathe and his condition is complicated by softening of the trachea. Hope only shone on them a few months ago. It was a costly operation in the United States of America, which the insurance company does not reimburse.

However, the mother of the sick boy managed to raise enough money from people in a short time thanks to contributions from people. However, the problems did not end there. Many things still needed to be equipped, including transportation. Commercial companies had to reject them, but they did not have the money for a private flight. The situation was finally resolved by the state – provided by a government special. The family flew to the USA at the end of April last year, where Sebastián underwent several months of treatment. After more than a year, however, it was time to return. The family’s residence permit expires on 30 June 2022. However, the question was how to get to Slovakia. According to the Facebook page Sebastian – our biggest fighter, the mother approached a huge number of commercial airlines, “gradually she received negative answers, somewhere it was limited by the amount of oxygen on board, somewhere old, somewhere they did not carry people with tracheostomy at all … Photo gallery (6) Source: Facebook / Sebastian – our biggest fighter Miroslava turned to companies that provide medical transports. Apart from the fact that their prices are too high, Miroslava also had a debt in the hospital on her neck, so the request addressed to our government came in. At this point, however, the situation got tangled. I would like to remind you that this took place around the beginning of May, time passed and the answer did not no one communicated with Mirka, even though she tried, “she described on the page Together we can prove the situation of her administrator Jana Brehovska.

No one really counted on the government helping. Payment for transport was to be made 20.6. to guarantee that Sebi will be able to leave by 30.6. Here, however, Sebi’s health condition took over again, and Sebi became ill. Suddenly it was not clear whether he would be able to fly at all in such a short time and so the payment was postponed, “she said.

With the payment for private transport, she waited in view of all the circumstances. If she did not have to pay for the private transport home, she could use the money to pay for the hospital. Therefore, when she received the answer that the government would help with the transport, she did not hide her joy. However, it was to last only a short time. “In the end, the government cannot provide transport because we collected from Sebi because, according to them, there was a collection for transport,” she said. The result was that the transport was not paid on time and the family did not have time to leave by 30 June. Miroslava had to start processing the application for an extension of her stay in the USA and also address the issue of housing, as they also have current accommodation only until the end of the month. “Among all these worries, it deals with transportation offers. It has already contacted 27 companies, since 2/3 it has not yet answers and updated offers. Subsequently, he will also have to contact them by phone to negotiate a possible discount. If you ask if it makes sense to list all 27 companies, then it does. The difference in prices is also 70 thousand euros. And everything that is saved will be used to pay for the hospital in May, “added Brehovska.

On June 20, she declared that she had raised the funds needed to order and pay for medical transport to Slovakia, “the press department of the ministry responded for Topky.sk. According to them, since the mother was not sure whether she could use the funds to pay for the transport, the ministry provided her with an opinion that the funds could also be used for this purpose. “This week, Sebastián’s mother confirmed her intention to arrange the transport on her own. After the family returns to Slovakia, the ministry is still ready to be helpful in resolving the health condition of little Sebastian, “they added.
