There was a misfortune in the Didenko family. At 4-year-old Maxym, doctors diagnosed a brain tumor. This is a very smiling child. He likes to play cars and board games. He went, like everyone to the kindergarten. The disease began at the age of three. The mother noticed that the son somehow hesitantly walks, staggers. Worried parents turned to the pediatrician. Doctors made an encephalogram and prescribed antibiotics for the child. But there was no improvement. Moreover, Maxim was getting worse and he completely stopped walking. Then they decided to do magnetic resonance imaging. After an MRI scan, the Didenko family's life turned upside down. Doctors have discovered a brain tumor. The diagnosis was awesome – cerebellar worm medulloblastoma.

For nine months, our babies stay in their small and comfortable microcosm before they are born. All this time they live under the close and gentle supervision of their guardian angel – the mother. A difficult test awaits those crumbs who are in a hurry to make the world happy ahead of time. At such moments, it is very important that the mother is near. Her touch, hugs, and breastfeeding can work wonders: even very small and weak kids grow up as real strongmen.

This is the same medical technology as the administration of drugs or artificial respiration.
Misha Nikolayenko was born with a very rare disease - granulomatosis. With this disease, the child’s immunity is practically zero and there is practically no resistance to infections. The life of a child with this disease is accompanied by huge doses of antibiotics, antifungal, and antibacterial drugs.

There he passed tests for myopathy and with his mother they are waiting for the result. In October, Mishutka fell ill again.
Seriously ill abandoned kids from Kyiv orphanage "Berizka" require constant and balanced nutrition. Although they can’t eat the usual food, the one their peers do. These children eat special food mixtures, with the help of a catheter. Dried therapeutic food allows them to receive enough calories and nutrients to withstand hits in a battle with the illness. Special nutrition required is not supplied by the costs of the state, and so these children can only rely on our help.
