Beautiful Sevil was born in the picturesque Crimea. Since childhood, she loves the sea and the mountains. Distant peaks hidden in the clouds lure her but now she can only dream about them… The girl’s left leg is shorter by almost five centimeters. In 2010 Sevil survived a terrible disease: osteosarcoma. The doctors and the mother did their best to save the leg affected by the tumor from amputation. The Crimean girl had a temporary endoprosthesis installed and it allowed her to grow and live a full teenage life.
After the baby is born into the world, his body adapts to completely different environmental conditions and undergoes many changes. One of the adaptation mechanisms is jaundice of newborns. During the fetal life of a child, its blood contains much more erythrocytes than an adult's. This is due to the fact that he gets oxygen from the mother's blood through the umbilical cord, and sufficient saturation requires a large amount of hemoglobin, which is part of the red blood cells since it is hemoglobin that carries oxygen to organs and tissues.

It is difficult to imagine the work of a modern operating room, in which there is no surgical aspirator. This device not only facilitates the work of doctors – in the case of nursing preterm infants it is indispensable. The success of the treatment and the life of a small patient can depend on the reliability of the medical aspirator, so it is so important that this apparatus is located in each compartment where babies are nursed. Nursing low-weight children are similar to providing the life of an astronaut in a long flight. It is necessary to maintain the temperature and humidity of the environment very precisely.
"Mom, I'm out of breath, it hurts inside, and my back is very sore..." Eight-year-old Kseniia was diagnosed with paralytic scoliosis of the fourth degree. The arc of her spine squeezes the internal organs, the girl is hard to breathe and it is already painful to sit with her. Kseniia's life history is her patient history. The baby got on the operating table right after birth. Two operations were done simultaneously then: a spinal hernia in the lumbar spine was removed, and the brain was shunted because of the diagnosis of hydrocephalus. Congenital pathologies of Kseniia include the luxation and subluxation of both hips, paralysis of the legs.

Denis's family has already sought help from UBB donors. Thanks to the sincere support of the well-doers, Denis was surveyed at the University Hospital of Dusseldorf. But the survey cost more than it was collected on the UBB. According to invoiced accounts, the family owed the clinic 1180,76 euros. As per the results of the survey, for the restoration of visual acuity, Denis was offered scleral contact lenses, costing 2,080.00 euros. For the family of Denis, both of these sums are very big and they won’t be able to collect them on their own! So, we have to appeal to you again, dear UBB donors!
