The disease will not be able to ruin life when there is a desire to live! And Maxim has this desire, because he often smiles and believes in people! And he is very smart and sometimes dreams and can think like an adult. He knows that to have results, he needs to make every effort and not to feel sorry for himself, so he trains hard even despite of the pain. Rehabilitation for such children with cerebral palsy is expensive, but very effective. The Shevchenko family simply can't afford it without your help, because the mother is raising two sons by herself!

When little Roma was born in the Frolov family, happiness knew no bounds. The two-year-old Cyril was most happy because he is now an adult, he is now an older brother! But the joy was not long, on the third day the baby began to choke, he was placed in a pressure chamber, and on day 10 he was transferred from the hospital to the regional children's hospital. Genetics voiced the diagnosis of Osteochondrodysplasia of the tubular bones with hydrocephalus and warned parents that such children can live no longer than a month. Roma denied all forecasts, at 8 months he was still living! But he could not sit, the weight of the grown head did not allow the baby to hold it. Donetsk doctors recommended urgent surgery.

The special tradition is to give presents out of mercy. Each orthodox family feels like a duty to give presents to the poor, sick, elderly.
These two girls are very different. Polina is a tiny smiling blonde. Maria is an older brunette with a keen look.
The girls desperately need of help. Their diagnoses intersect with just one word – an anomaly of brain development. These children have disrupted normal functioning of the legs. The girls regularly undergo rehabilitation and exercise at home. But while they are in the process of treatment, they need to be transported somehow.
Christmas is the most magical, the most childish holiday. This holiday wakes up the most light and kind feelings and the feeling of miracle appears. This is the holiday when wishes come true. For everyone. And this is probably the most important thing. The tradition of bringing gifts is old and riches the time when presents were brought to the baby Christ. The little beneficiaries of ‘Everybody Can’ foundation also wait for presents on this day. Unfortunately, these kids were unlucky twice– when they got a hard diagnosis and when their home became the battlefield.
