“I hope that one fine day I will wake up and won't understand what's happening to me: no pain, death has retreated, and I've never been a hunchbacked cripple”

He's a man, and men don't cry – even when the pain darkens their vision, their lungs seize up, and taking a breath becomes impossible.  Any cold, even the slightest one, could cost Nika his life.  The life of 20-year-old Nika Shubitidze is nothing but constant suffering. 

Nika: Since childhood, I've always felt different. The world that seemed carefree and endless for others became a battleground for me. I realized I wasn't like the other boys at school - I couldn't run. Maybe back then, I didn't fully understand what was happening to me, and it didn't hurt as much. But I remember there were doctors, X-rays, tests... How I hated them!  They hurt me, looked at me with serious faces, and afterwards, my grandmother would always cry.

- Can you remember when you started having pain?

Nika: The pain has been with me for as long as I can remember. But over time, it became unbearable. I tried to ignore it, tried to act like everything was okay, but sometimes the pain would make everything go dark, as if I were sinking into some kind of hell.  Even breathing became unbearable. It felt like every breath could be my last, as if my lungs were going to explode. I was afraid of even the slightest cold because it could turn into something much more serious for me.  But the hardest part was coming to terms with the fact that there was salvation, but I couldn't attain it.

With each passing year, Nika's condition becomes increasingly challenging

- Can you please tell us more about it?

Nika: Today, the question is about saving my life. Georgian doctors recommend me to have a surgery in Turkey, and I need to gather $25,000 to make it a reality. For me, this isn't just an operation - it's a chance to have a normal future, an opportunity to explore the world without pain and suffering.  The Ministry of Health has helped by providing $5,000, and I'm grateful for that support. But I still need another $20,000. I believe there are people who can understand me and offer their support. I need this surgery, not because I simply want to improve my appearance, but because I'm genuinely in a lot of pain, and life has become incredibly difficult.

- Have you ever felt ashamed of your appearance?

Nika: Perhaps there were moments, but I've learned to live with it. There might have been taunts, but I didn't pay attention. I forbid myself from crying. Tears don't make the pain go away, so what's the point in shedding them? I constantly tried to act like everything was fine.  I guess I didn't want others to see my weaknesses. But you know, I've been lucky – I've met good people along the way. I've been lucky with friends both in school and at university.

"My spine has curved by 80 degrees. It hinders my movement and causes unbearable pain"

- Did you enjoy going to school? Did you study well?

Nika: School was a kind of sanctuary for me. I studied well, everything was easy for me. However, at times, I had to study lying down.  I sometimes had to miss school because I couldn't even sit. They kept taking me to doctors, but it didn't help at all.  When I graduated from school and had to choose a profession, I knew for sure that I didn't want to become a doctor. I entered the history department.

- Why did you choose the history department?

Nika: History is a passion that has nothing to do with my pain.  It lets me escape from reality and immerse myself in the past.  It's my attempt to find a place where I can be fulfilled. Honestly, I want to teach, but we'll see how it goes. I have big plans, but my body holds me back. If I listen to it, I might go crazy.  Sitting is difficult, standing is a challenge, and even lying down can be tough. I get tired quickly, and sometimes I can't even breathe. If I don't have the surgery now, I may not live to see graduation.  And I love living so much!

- How do you think your life would have turned out if it weren't for your curved spine?

Nika: It's hard to say. My pain has become a part of me, and perhaps it has shaped me into who I am. I didn't think about it... maybe I did, but I won't talk about it. It's very personal. I believe that after the surgery, everything will improve, and life will become different.

- I won't touch on topics that hurt you, Nika. You live with your grandmother.  Where are your parents?

Nika: My mother left us, and I don't know why. My father is disabled; he's blind in one eye and can't work. In his youth, a thorn hit his eye, and he lost his sight when he was 17. 

"Mama left us, and now Grandma is everything to me"

- You mentioned that your mother left without explaining anything. Perhaps this is a very sore subject for you?

Nika: Yes, it hurts, and I would prefer not to discuss it. There's physical pain and you can endure it. But there's another kind of pain and nothing can soothe it, not even surgery. Let's not talk about that.

- Nika, one more question, and I won't bother you anymore.  I can see you're already having a hard time. You need surgery now.  But couldn't it have been done earlier?

Nika: We went to all the doctors - I could list all the names. When they saw me, they said:  "He needs to have surgery urgently, but we can't do it.  Take him somewhere else."  I don't know anyone in Georgia who had that kind of money saved up. And my family couldn't sell anything. We always lived modestly. It was impossible to gather such an amount before. But now, with the Ministry of Health covering a part of it, we have hope. We found you. I believed that someone could step into my situation, that someone would not remain indifferent. So, I reached out to you, and here you are! I'll think of it as the first step towards recovery.

“I believed that someone could step into my situation, that someone would not remain indifferent”

Nika is now facing the most challenging path - the path to healing. He is asking for help, for support, to conquer his pain and suffering. The dark days, the suffering, and the excruciating pain that have accompanied Nika since birth can recede. And we can be the ones responsible for making it happen!  Each and every one of us! Right now, every step for Nika is a trial, and every movement is torture. But we can put an end to this, my friends!

Nika's story is one of resilience, inner strength, and hope. Perhaps his distorted life has given him something greater than ordinary trials. He doesn't cry, but he is asking for help to step into a future without pain and limitations. Perhaps your involvement can indeed be the key to a new chapter in his life - a chapter where he can breathe freely and move forward with his head held high.

If you are willing to visit this family and help them in person, here is their address: Gori, 10a Abramishvili Str.

Every time you can help someone, just do it, and rejoice that God answers someone's prayers through you!

We are sure that all together we will manage to save Nika from imminent death.
