BOSTON (USA): Therapist Katherine Hartigan interacts with Ihor Lakatosh at Shriners Hospital for Children. Ihor had been burned in Ukraine, where his mother abandoned him at a hospital in 2011. Neglect had caused his burned skin to contract, fusing his arm to his chest and leaving him unable to walk. He was about 8 or 9 years old and weighed less than 30 pounds when he was flown to Boston in 2012 for treatment. He eventually returned to an orphanage in Ukraine, but has returned to Boston for additional surgeries.
