Hello! My name is Alex Cooper, and today is my birthday. Today I'm 30. I was very inspired by the example of Maxym Bakhmatov, and on my birthday I want to help save Ekaterina's mother. Natalia Petukhova is an Odessa citizen, who was diagnosed with a terrible diagnosis last summer: acute leukemia. In other words, more familiar to us is the blood cancer. If you want to congratulate me on my birthday, then transfer money to Natalia. Now she really needs support.

"We have an ordinary family, a second child is our princes. As we wanted: the boy and the girl. Diet, doctor’s prescriptions, tests. Fast childbirth in time, breastfeeding. It was a lovely child; there were no problems with her during first six months. And then everything turned upside down... I look at Kira’s photos, there are walks, and ponytails, and brother, and christenings, and toys, and smiles... Then the onset of the disease – the first lymph node, then the bandages on the rest lanced lymph nodes, the first hospitalization, catheters, bruises because of low platelets, anesthesia, drips, chemotherapy, pain, resuscitation...
The New Year and Christmas holidays are coming and everybody eagerly awaits it. Happy reminiscences of childhood – a nicely decorated fir-tree, hand-made paper snowflakes, confetti, and gifts… There is an ethereal air of holiday, miracle and charm, an expectation of something novel and better, of things never happened before. It is an inevitable feeling of accomplishment of the most secret, bright and challenging dreams. Who of us did not feel it? Who does not expect it? It is children who wait for it most of all. They believe the miracle is at their door, yes, just the door will open and happiness, merriment and the fadeless memories will stay with them forever.
They cannot see her and she cannot hear them… Such unbearably sad story was told to us by a dad of one little girl Veronika. "They say that lightning never strikes twice in the same place. But, sometimes it is possible three times. My name is Oleksandr, my wife name is Nadiia. We met at Odessa Boarding School for Blind Children (my wife and I have less than one percent of a sense of vision of each eye). We are married almost for five years, and more than one year we spent on visiting doсtors-geneticists, who assured us that vision problem would not be transmitted to the child. They didn’t indeed...
In 2010, as a result of the road traffic accident, Irina suffered multiple injuries, namely: crushed leg bone, fractured ribs, a double fracture of the jaw, ruptured spleen, liver damage. Fortunately, the body recovered very quickly and in three months Irina returned to work. But in 2013 she underwent an operation due to acute adhesive obstruction. Necrosis largely destroyed the small intestine tissue. Doctors managed to save only 45 cm, while normal size hereof is 366 – 671 cm.
Tina was born on the 26th week of pregnancy and weighed only 1,1 kg. The girl was so tiny that her father could hold her in his palms. After her birth, the baby spent 2,5 months in the pathology department of Odessa region children’s clinical hospital. During a long period of time Tina was able to eat only with the help of an enteral feeding tube, and finally, she started to gain weight. Doctors said that things are going not bad. Having gained 2,5 kilos Tina went home for the first time! Her parents were incredibly happy and thought that everything bad was left in the past. Tina grew and developed very fast at home. She held her head, she got on her hands, she was active.
“Before the accident Bogdanchik was a healthy, active child. But when he was 1year and 3 months old, the misfortune happened – he fell into a deep hole with water. When the child was taken out, he did not breathe. But, the arrived “ambulance” managed to get his heart beating. On the way to the hospital, Bogdan had a repeated heart failure. The doctors’ conclusion: a clinical death for 12 minutes, the brain is dead, coma of the 3rd stage. They did not give a chance to live. But in the morning a miracle happened.
Sometimes, unfortunately, children are born with serious illnesses. Our Zlatochka was among such children. Birth trauma has led the baby to a delay of state-motor development. Zlata felt a lot of pain and suffering for her four and a half years. But, against all the odds, we with our Zlatochka do not give up. Our daughter has already learned to sit, talk, crawl, hold her back, she likes books, English, music and often smiles. All thanks are to the message and recreation therapists. But we have to pay for their work and pay daily.
“Seven years ago, my only son, Sasha, was poisoned by thallium. This is a heavy metal that causes irrecoverable consequences in a human body such as cerebral edema, necrosis of nerve cells, disability and even death. Sasha was growing up as a smart and sociable guy. He was majoring in programming. However, when Sasha was 19 years old, his “friend”, the internship doctor, gave him water to drink, which was diluted with thallium... Sasha was at the point of death for a long time.
