In 2015, the life of Denys and all his family turned upside down, when the boy was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Over the past two and a half years, Denis suffered a lot – bone marrow transplantation, daily procedures, administration of medications and sometimes intolerable pain, isolation from friends, relatives. Not every adult can even imagine it! On August 12, 2016, Denis came through BMT in Turkey, and the results were good at first. However, six months later, aggravation began – the necrosis of the bones and tissues of the lower leg developed and he stopped walking. Then, necrosis developed in the hip joints.
Denys was born healthy. There was no limit to the parents’ joy – they finally waited for their lovely cute baby. But the cloudless childhood of Denys did not last long. Planned BCG vaccination was done to him despite the fact that the baby at that moment was sick with rubella. The result was terrible complications that turned future of the boy and his family upside down. Now he could have finished junior school, could play football with other boys in the yard. But Denys cannot sit, walk, speak, he silently lies, and 6-7 times a day his body is shaken by epilepsy seizures.

"Mom, I'm out of breath, it hurts inside, and my back is very sore..." Eight-year-old Kseniia was diagnosed with paralytic scoliosis of the fourth degree. The arc of her spine squeezes the internal organs, the girl is hard to breathe and it is already painful to sit with her. Kseniia's life history is her patient history. The baby got on the operating table right after birth. Two operations were done simultaneously then: a spinal hernia in the lumbar spine was removed, and the brain was shunted because of the diagnosis of hydrocephalus. Congenital pathologies of Kseniia include the luxation and subluxation of both hips, paralysis of the legs.
Denis's family has already sought help from UBB donors. Thanks to the sincere support of the well-doers, Denis was surveyed at the University Hospital of Dusseldorf. But the survey cost more than it was collected on the UBB. According to invoiced accounts, the family owed the clinic 1180,76 euros. As per the results of the survey, for the restoration of visual acuity, Denis was offered scleral contact lenses, costing 2,080.00 euros. For the family of Denis, both of these sums are very big and they won’t be able to collect them on their own! So, we have to appeal to you again, dear UBB donors!

It is very difficult to breathe for Yaroslav. He can hardly sit. The heart is pinched and it's hard for him to beat. Yaroslav's spine is bent in the shape of the letter S, and this is very painful in itself. And if help doesn’t come, Yaroslav will soon die, and he will die very painfully. Yaroslav was born with slight changes in his spine. At that time doctors said that it was not dangerous and everything would improve with time. But, unfortunately, when the boy turned 11 the disease started to progress. In 2007 metal rods were applied to the boy’s spine, but in 2009 they were removed as they were not taken.
‘There is no sodium chloride, glucose…’, ‘I have a check for 2 000 hrivnas, can you help me?..’, ‘Is it possible to find...?’ – those are not all phrases that I hear every day from parents of our patients. It seems sodium chloride – 10 hrivnas, biseptol – 27 hrivnas… Trifle? Not in their case. We collected funds for the purchase of medicines in oncology department of Mykolaiv Regional Children's Hospital one year ago. Now it's time to revert to you, friends. We are in despair! Prices are rising every day and the month of the lives of our kids costs not 40 thousand hrivnas as it was a year ago, but almost 170 thousand hrivnas now.
