• implementation of other charitable activities in the public interest.
The young Marshuk family waited happily for the birth of their child. Everything was going good, including tests, ultrasound, screening; nothing portended bad times ahead, until once mother felt bad. The parents went to the hospital in a panic. The doctors told them they did not know what to do, the baby’s dad couldn’t believe such words. Then, Artem was born. He was born prematurely at 33 weeks, little and weak. He endured a few days under reviving apparatuses, constant droppers and injections. After the maternity hospital, the mother and her baby went to the neonatal pathology department where doctors struggled for him for a month.
Zlata Dyachuk was born 18 years ago; she was diagnosed as spinal hernia. The baby was only two months old when she was first operated on. However, she did not recover after surgery was done. The next diagnosis shocked her mother; her girl was diagnosed as flaccid paraparesis. For this reason, she has never stood on her feet, being a handicapped person. Zlata has been undergoing treatment at Bersenev Medical Center since 2009. Thanks to regular treatment, the girl can move around with the help of armrests.
Good afternoon, dear friends! Due to the previous project that helped Artem to undergo a course of treatment in Kharkov, many of you are already acquainted with this guy. He will be 19 soon, and he has grave cerebral palsy and epilepsy from birth. Due to serious illness, such children can’t learn how to do simple things by themselves and even hold a head. This is all caused by strong brain damage. But this kid’s strong character and his persistent thirst for living prove that nothing is impossible.
Healthy children are undoubtedly the greatest happiness in the world. Ruslan and Roman’s parents wished their children born healthy, but their dream didn’t come true. Cerebral palsy diagnosis came like a bolt from a blue. That day has engraved in their memory as if a bad dream, it was hard to accept such a news. Difficult times began, so many questions have arisen – what is to be done, what to do, where to find much money for drugs and treatment? Sometimes mother used to ask her friends for funds. However, it is by no means easy in the village where everyone knows each other, where no one wants to help you and support; only blame and glare. But in spite of everything, the family did not surrender and made every effort hopefully to provide kids with treatment.
Misfortunes never come singly. Vanya is sick from birth. He is the third child and the whole Voynov's family adores him. He’s born at 30-31 week pregnant, weighing 1 kg 980 g. The results were terrible: hypoxia, hemorrhage that led to resuscitation. In his 2 years, Ivan can't sit and play without assistance. He is clever, understands everything and tries to talk. He is an interesting, merry and normal fellow who wants to stand up on his feet and make first resolute steps. But he can’t do this…
Dasha Kravchenko is from Kagarlyk, Kyiv region. In her 2 years and 3 months she can’t walk and stand on her feet. When the girl was 5 months old, she suffered from flu with a high temperature and convulsive disorder. When the family turned to the regional hospital, the child’s illness was diagnosed as acute inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (AIDP) – there weren’t any reflexes in her legs and reflexes in arms and stomach were retarded.
The war forced the family: father, mother and their 2 children, to abandon their home and become the refugees, like hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians. They’ve lived in Luhansk before 2014. This family lives in Lviv now where the 3-d child Ivan was born. His birth was premature, at 31-st week. The boy spent one and a half day on the lungs’ mechanical ventilation. A cute little boy, weighing two kg, has a lot of diagnoses; the main one is an infantile cerebral palsy.
Dear friends! If you’re reading these lines, you aren’t just casual people in Artem’s life. So, you aren’t indifferent to mother’s Ponomarenko Halyna only son’s fate. She told us about her son Artem not so much. The boy’s already 18 years old. In short, he has a heavy form of cerebral palsy, microcephaly and epilepsy from birth. But this is quite enough for the child’s being sick from birth, as the doctors predicted. Nevertheless, Artem’s parents’ strong character and his persistent thirst for living have done a lot.
While 5-year-old Artem has a cerebral palsy, serious organic CNS injury as well as arrested development because of premature birth and despite the fact that immediately after difficult delivery the little boy had been admitted to a resuscitation department where doctors had been fighting for his life for 18 days and then he had been tolerating emergency treatment for two and a half months at OHMATDYT Hospital, he smiles like a winner. He did survive!
