The twins Diana and Mikhail are very early birds, they were born deeply premature and immediately flew into intensive care immediately after birth. Children were nursed for 2 months and finally discharged home. Parents breathed a sigh of relief, but then they still did not know what awaited them next... It took some 3 months, and the brother and sister again went to the hospital. Heat. 3 weeks under the supervision of doctors, but no diagnosis.

Daryna Ogilko will soon turn 4. Three of them, she is fighting non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Hormones changed the face of the child beyond recognition, but they cannot be canceled, because wounds immediately appear on the skin. These are manifestations of the chronic graft versus host reaction. The only treatment that can help is a course of photopheresis, which is not available in Ukraine. In early childhood, a girl found a tumor on her head. Soon, analysis showed that it was an aggressive B-cell lymphoma.
"The inhaler broke down so that it could not be repaired in the workshop", writes Kira's mom. I check: indeed, the girl received this device from us 3.5 years ago. The simple model met the needs of the baby, but during this time it runs out of resources, they work longer rarely. But the inhaler for a person living with cystic fibrosis is an item of basic necessity, the patient begins to suffocate without daily procedures. So it's a matter of urgency.
The situation with pediatric cardiology is catastrophic. 51.67% of children (i.e., children during the first 28 days of life) who have a complex form of congenital heart disease die.
Even from simple forms of heart defects, 42.3% of children die. 30% of children are discharged from the hospital even without suspicion of a terrible diagnosis. Half of them die. Every year in Ukraine, more than 800 children die from cardiovascular diseases.
Our goal is to change that!

The first house of Neterplyachki (prematurely born children) is the plastic transparent boxing. Their first bed is the twisted up towels and diapers. And they so want to convolve and fall asleep in warm mother cuddles. Unfortunately, sometimes is so, that a child forces to be in boxing long time and cuddles of parents for him only on-schedule and on a limit time. But we know how to correct it, together we can give warmth and comfort to our little Preemies, we will turn the cold plastic into magic little palaces, in which princes and princesses will spend first weeks of their lives. We will supply them with the soft nests, magical covers for incubators and the so needed positioners and pillows.
The mother of two charming infants turns to all caring people with a request to save her babies. Diana and Mykhailo appeared with the help of the C-section. Unfortunately, the two angels were born prematurely, with underweighting. They were connected to the reviving apparatus for two months. Finally, the children went on the next stage of treatment. They grow up, gain weight and parents are happy. After 109 days, brother and sister were discharged from the hospital. Before being discharged, they were vaccinated against hepatitis B and BCG.
"The wounds that Misha receives are equivalent to the burn of II-III degree, this unbearable pain accompanies my son all his life, but we have learned to live with it," says mother Xenia. "When Misha wants to run, jump, play ball – he just tries not to pay attention to the pain and seeks to feel the joy of childhood. He is very strong in spirit, and despite such merriment, I always notice on his face that he has a wound, but he continues to play and assures that there is no wound, he smiles sweetly to me to assure of the truth of his words...".
Mother's son, mother’s joy – Zhenіa. He is seriously interested in cars, likes to dance and sing together with his brother and to read books with his mom. "I call him sunshine because he always smiles that way," says mother Olga. Zhenшa is smart and playful, and a serious illness prevents him from living as actively as he wants. He has to spend a lot of time on daily procedures. Also, the baby is gaining weight poorly, is not developing well, because the family is not able to provide everything necessary for treatment – it is too expensive. However, if we help to buy good-quality medical equipment, supplies, and nutrition, Zhenіa will have more time and strength to live the usual life of a young boy.
