‘She’s more relaxed, they removed her tracheotomy [and] through a pump they are giving her a medicine that should lead to other physical progress.’
Ms Rosi’s daughter Caterina was delivered by doctors via an emergency Caesarean section
Ms Rosi has now been transferred to a clinic in Austria where she will receive 24-hour specialist care
Ms Rosi’s treatment, which sees her receive intense physiotherapy sessions, is now been funded by a crowdfunding page set up by her husband, which has so far raised more than £155,176 (€180,572).
However Mr Succi is now hoping to raise the amount to £257,808 (€300,000) in order to keep on financing his wife’s treatment abroad.
Mr Succi added: ‘So far we have been able to guarantee Cristina the therapies. We cannot stop now. My wife and daughter deserve to go home in the best possible condition.’
In an effort to boost donations, Margherita Scarpellini, the Monte San Savino mayor, wrote on Facebook last year: ‘Apart from donations, it is important to tell Cristina’s story so that help arrives as fast as possible from as many people as possible.’
