A temperature sensor is a tiny while an extremely important element within a sophisticated climate system for nursing preterm infants: an incubator. These are specifically incubators that successfully substitute for mom’s belly for little impatient ones who have rushed to come into the world before the day fixed by the nature: they help little babies to adapt to the aggressive environment where it is too cold, too dry, too bright and too noisy. Thanks to special sensors, these wonder cradles help to automatically control humidity and temperature, thus creating the necessary conditions for their guests to assimilate, grow and flutter into the world, healthy and strong.
On February 15, 2016, at the 29th week of pregnancy, Natalia Drozdova was born with twins – Ivan 1,420 kg 40 cm and Danylo 1,470 kg 38 cm. From the operating room, the boys were taken to the neonatal intensive care unit. And from that moment on, the life of mom and dad changed drastically. The condition of the children was regarded as difficult. Respiratory failure due to immaturity. On the 7th day of life, pulmonary hemorrhage occurred, transfusion of blood components was done, the health state was severe. The most terrible words for parents: "The health state is consistently heavy". Many attempts to remove from the ventilator (mechanical ventilation) were not successful, either the lungs stuck together, or it was not possible to breathe.

Aliona is a young mother. Together with her loving husband, she is raising a wonderful baby Tymofii. What else could a young family want? Raising a son, enjoying their life together, making plans for the future… But the family’s happiness is overshadowed by Aliona's disease, multiple sclerosis. The young mother cannot move without assistance, as the disease has hit the spinal cord. Her legs are impossible to control, so she is chained to a wheelchair. The treatment costs 425,000 UAH. This sum is impracticable for a young family with only the father employed.
The life of little Misha began with a heavy loss: a month after the birth of the boy, his mother died. This was a heavy blow for the whole family, and little Misha experienced this event especially hard. It is so hard that now when he is more mature, he constantly asks: "Are you my mom?".

Even doctors call her the resistant Tin Soldier. Three months ago, we were telling a story about the striking struggle of an extremely strong woman – against death. Breast cancer stage 4 will be had to put the point – Iryna was almost blind in one eye, and metastases hit her head, lungs, bones, and muscles. However, neither a disappointing prediction, nor a lack of money, nor a betrayal of a husband who left at the most difficult moment, nor a sick mother, who also needs care – all this did not break her.
Elena is 42 years old, she is a mother of four children, a furniture designer, and volunteer. In winter, she had a sore throat, as often happens, at first a little, then more, and then so unbearable that it became difficult to breathe and speak. Further events began to unfold so rapidly that did not have time to recover, or is it with her. The local ENT doctor sent her to test for tumor markers, and they immediately showed that stage 3 throat cancer, with metastasis. From that moment the shock has not passed until now.

Heart failure, stroke, chronic lung disease or cancer – a lot of it can lead to breathlessness. Many patients at such a stage can no longer be cured. But you can help and start doing it before a person starts to suffocate, before "gets used" to sleep while sitting...
Close your eyes for a minute and imagine that you have problems with speech, understanding, you do not know how to communicate, do not use gestures, cannot repeat actions, do not look into your eyes, do not understand danger and do not show feelings in general, and for all at the same time, you have an increased sensitivity, even hysterics, to noise, music, light, clothes, smells, bathing, haircuts, and you only eat a certain set of products, and the toilet is still a problem for you. Submitted? Complicated? And for people with autism, this is not a minute sensation, but a daily state. This is their special world.
