According to The Siberian times, Doctors said the Stone Man syndrome, scientifically known as progressive fibromyalgia affects one in two million people.
Svetlana Pavlenko, mother of Timofey (aka Tim), said, "Timofey is our youngest child.

At that time we did not know that it was the first sign of the Stone Man syndrome.

A group of supporters are working on raising money for Pavlenko to get her child treated by leading experts in the world.
