When Andrii was 3 months old, a neurologist told his parents that their son had cerebral palsy. Since then, things are familiar and simple for many children, for Andrii – the result of trials, pain, numerous rehabilitation, and titanic efforts. Immediately after the birth of the boy was taken to the intensive care unit, for several days he did not even breathe on his own, and instead of his mother's milk, there was food through a probe. He first uttered the word "Mom" at the age of nine and took his first step at 11. All 14 years of Andrii's life are a struggle to become, if not healthy, at least independent.
While children as young as 7 are already learning to read and write, this girl, Olia Kozhukhar from Berdyansk, can say "mom". It's the only word the girl still utters. She is unable to walk, and without support – even to stand or sit. Olia's condition is a result of a brain hemorrhage. The child was traumatized during childbirth and now rehabilitation is a necessity without any more. During pregnancy, her mother suffered an SARS and it was a risk for the girl.
Her life began with the grievous loss of her mother. The woman died when she was giving birth to Sophia, but the girl's suffering did not end there and the doctors diagnosed cerebral palsy.

The situation with pediatric cardiology is catastrophic. 51.67% of children (i.e., children during the first 28 days of life) who have a complex form of congenital heart disease die.
Even from simple forms of heart defects, 42.3% of children die. 30% of children are discharged from the hospital even without suspicion of a terrible diagnosis. Half of them die. Every year in Ukraine, more than 800 children die from cardiovascular diseases.
Our goal is to change that!
Every year in Ukraine almost 5,000 babies are born with heart failure, which develops in the mother's womb at the same time as the birth of a new life. A third of them from maternity hospitals are discharged even without suspicion of the disease, while in the first hours or days of life the crumbs should have been on the surgical table. So 800 of them, then we lose.

There it is connected to the device of artificial respiration, because it is impossible for the baby to breathe independently.
