Butterfly Child Effect

Efekt motylka aka Little Butterfly

Režie: Jarosław Szmidt


7 year old Zuzia, her parents and her sister, they seem to be a normal, happy family.
But from the moment she was born, Zuzia has been suffering from one of the most diabolical, rare genetical diseases known to man - EB.

Zuzia Macheta, is often called a "butterfly child", because her skin is as sensitive as butterflies wings. It falls apart when you touch it. Her body is constantly covered in extensive wounds. The pain can be compared to burning the skin with a hot oil.

Therapy can improve Zuzia's health by 90%, but the cost of this therapy is 1.5 mln $.

The finalization of the 1,5 million dollars fundraiser in a record time of 55-days is a great success and popular media story. The treatment in USA is now possible.

The big day of the transplant has come, Zuzia's symbolic new birthday, giving her a great chance to live a normal life.

Zuzia fought one more time and she is alive. She survived despite the laws of nature, logic, and medicine. Zuzia's organism has 100% of the donor cells. There is new hope! On Zuzia's healed legs we can see her first ever, normal bruises - instead of open wounds that would appear there before. The therapy is starting to work.
