Every day he struggles for every new resolute step without pain, for every new word spoken, for faith in future and full life... The baby’s illness was diagnosed as cerebral palsy when he was 1 year and 7 months old and the whole family was shocked by it. Previously, the doctors assured the boy’s mother that he wouldn’t walk, talk and understand and would be wheelchair-bounded. Despite those predictions, the woman didn’t believe their words. She’s strongly convinced that this diagnosis would be overcome and her child would enjoy life to the full as the others. Mum brings her child up alone, doesn’t work because he needs care.

Dima grew up and developed ahead of his peers. His mom began to think that his son might be a genius as he began to talk, to walk, to paint and to play active games very early. But one morning when Dima was almost three years old he couldn’t say a word. He stopped talking, eating, was afraid of water. The boy turned away from everything he loved. After lengthy examinations, the doctors diagnosed him with autism and later a brain tumor was detected.
Sterilizers are mostly bought by young parents to sterilize baby bottles and this comes as no surprise to all. However, they can also serve other purpose – our children are 5, 10 and even 25 years old and for each of them a sterilizer is something that literally can save his/her life. Our Foundation assists girls and boys living with a serious genetic disease called cystic fibrosis and every infection that settles in their lungs which is apparently the CF's main target can take their lives. And our task is to protect them.
Sasha is 32 years old, his sister Angelica is almost 30, and they call themselves old-timers. In Ukraine, there are not so many adults over 30 with such a diagnosis as theirs. In Europe, exactly the opposite: almost everyone till 30 with cystic fibrosis survives and keeps on living. Such a difference appears due to the inaccessibility of high-quality treatment in Ukraine because they have to buy most of what they need yourself. Today the guys are asking for help. They lack medical equipment for a more active and better life.
Olga was born along with his sister, parents expecting twins. But sister Ollie died in the womb, and not born. However, sometimes nobody thought about it until putrid water began to poison the organism of a living sister and mother... Olga was born by emergency cesarean, the girl was saved with all my strength.
Before us is a 32-year-old from Kiev, Oleksii Vysotskyi – a strong and strong-willed young man. Pleasant companion. He talks about sport in an interesting and detailed way. And it is not surprising, because he lives it. It is difficult to imagine that this person may have health problems. However, this is a fact – since childhood till today, this Paralympic without a special apparatus hears absolutely nothing.
Mashunia is one of the smallest and one of our hardest patients. Her illness is very difficult and it takes a lot to resist it. But Mashunya is tiny. In her 10 months she weighs only 6 kg. This is critically small, because the girl’s diagnosis leads to the increased vulnerability to infections (she has to fight against them constantly) and complicated digestion of food. It is impossible to balance the situation with ordinary food, especially, when the time plays against the baby. So all hope is for high calorie nutrition, Mashunya already ate it and it helped. It is now important to continue and provide a little special food for the winter, the most dangerous period.
By this fall, the Katrusia family knew that the girl had a serious illness, but it had little effect on her life. Until Katya got really sick. She was completely white and was brought to the hospital with nonsurvivable oxygen levels in her blood. There were weeks spent in resuscitation and intensive care unit, Katya was on the verge, but stayed alive. Now she was dismissed home. But her lungs didn’t recover to the normal state. In order to feel good and not to have insomnia from shortness of breath, Katrusia needs the help of a portable oxygen concentrator. For an ordinary family from a small town, its value is very high. But the girl can't wait for her parents to raise money. She wants to breathe normally right now.
Artem is 8 years old, he goes to the 2nd grade of an ordinary school, tries to keep up in all subjects. The boy knows how to walk by the hand, stand near a support, sit independently and, more recently, he learned to eat himself. And this is all overcoming the strong tone in the legs. About such children as Artem, they say as very promising. But it was not always like that. As a result of a medical error, the boy was born at 32 weeks of gestation. During childbirth, he received oxygen starvation of the brain. Closer to a year old, the baby was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, tetraparesis, and motor development retardation. From that moment a difficult life began for Artem and his parents.
Artem is the third child of parents-athletes. It would seem that healthy and strong-minded parents should have the same healthy children. However, the theory is not always the same in practice. For 5 years the boy has been struggling with cerebral palsy, spastic tetraparesis, pseudobulbar syndrome and a delay in all types of development... Just a little, but Artem wins in this fight.
