His every day is a day of struggle with a rare and horrible disease. In order to win life, a little Vasyl’ko needs not only daily massage, exercise therapy, and breathing training – even in order to eat, the baby needs help. "Due to the progression of the disease, our boy lost his ability to swallow and is fed only through a probe. Very expensive special nutrition is required for this. We kindly ask all good people to help our son", Vasyl's mother says. And it is necessary to respond immediately, because without probe nutrition the child may die from exhaustion.

Artem couldn’t walk, couldn’t speak and almost couldn’t move – these were the consequences of severe hydrocephalus. The doctors recommended rehabilitation which contributed to the restoration of brain cells. After two cycles the boy’s condition has improved significantly. He began to interact with the world, to mumble, to pronounce the first words. Artem needs to go through at least one more treatment cycle in the immediate future but the family cannot afford to buy the prescribed medication.
The Kovalchuk family does not represent their life without the youngest son of Kolia... They are a big and friendly family, and grief has united them with a common goal – to make little Kolya healthy. He was born on the 40th week of my mother's pregnancy with a height of 52 cm and weighing 3,300 grams. The family was very dreamed of a daughter, and the parents decided to give birth to the tenth child. Pregnancy passed well. However, during the birth, something went wrong: polyhydramnios artificially caused childbirth... The waters moved away, and the birth did not begin, and the child was without air for a long time.
70 convulsions a day is a terrible figure, especially when a 9-month-old baby suffers. A year and a half ago, Olia's parents were in despair at the inability to cope with epilepsy. But her mother found an innovative clinic, we found funds – and a year ago, Olia began to be treated in Chernivtsi. The result is incredible: the dose of anticonvulsant was gradually reduced – Olia won epilepsy! But there is still a long way: it is necessary to correct the treatment so as convulsions don’t return, and to restore the nervous system. In August, the Chernivtsi clinic is waiting for Olia again.
