For nine long months, one young mother from Serbia imagined all the amazing moments and milestones she’d get to witness following the birth of her first child.
Tragically, however, Danijela Kovacevik wasn’t there to see any of it. Shortly after giving birth to daughter Marija in 2009, she developed sepsis, a deadly blood poisoning, and she fell into a coma. As the years passed, Danijela’s family and her growing daughter prayed that she would wake up one day.
Yet as the years passed, Danijela’s doctors lost hope that her condition would change. However, after seven long years, the now 25-year-old has shocked everyone by waking up and has finally met her daughter for the first time. “After school, Marija is close to her mama every day. She comforts her, makes her laugh and does not give up the hope that she will touch her and embrace her,” a family friend said.
Danijela has made incredible progress but still has to relearn how to do the most basic things like speaking or feeding herself, which will require expensive speech and physical therapy. To pay for the therapy and costly medical care, Danijela’s family began a GoFundMe page in hopes of raising $50,000, which will cover the rest of her treatments.
“Danijela is much better that before. She has put on weight, she is more aware and more alive. She reacts, smiles and gets angry. You are (essentially) teaching a kid to do certain things. She had very hard training. She walked 800 meters, and that is a big achievement. She has advanced to the stage where she can hold a tablet and pen in her hand, and follow conversations,” dad Djordje Kovacevic said about the progress Danijela’s made after three months of treatment.
