Nastia is an ordinary three-year-old girl who likes to play with dolls and listen to fairy tales about princesses. But, unlike her peers, Nastia also knows what cancer is. For over a year, the girl undergoes treatment for neuroblastoma. During this time, she has already received six cycles of chemotherapy, has undergone a renal removal surgery, two cycles of high-dose chemo with bone marrow transplantation. Nastia knows what pain is and what the doctor’s words "low blood cell count" means. It means that she cannot go anywhere but she has to stay in her room all the time and take new injections or pills... This is her childhood.

Cerebral palsy is three words that can knock the ground out from under the feet of any parent. Parents do not know what to do about it. Time passes ... and by trial and error, they find their own way. Eva was born 10 weeks ahead of schedule. After 2 months of struggling for life, the baby was discharged home. Since then, the girl is constantly undergoing rehabilitation and is exercising at home. This is a huge work.
There is a wardrobe (closet) full of things in every home. You open it every day and wear clothes that you like. It is a natural desire of all people, despite their age or status. But, not all people have a full home wardrobe (closet). There are people whose wardrobe (closet) is empty! There are no clothes in it! That’s why in CF "Caritas Kharkiv" there is a place where all people in need can take clothes for free (for men, women, children). This place is called "Social wardrobe".
Our little princess Nastia continues her struggle for a happy childhood and full life. A girl was born on the 31st week. No one explained to parents what had led to a serious birth injury, a mistake of doctors or incorrect management of the birth process. For several months, the baby could not breathe on her own and was kept in intensive care under an oxygen mask. As a result, a disappointing diagnosis – cerebral palsy, spastic diplegia, delay in psychological development.

My dream is to give to Andrii a world filled with happiness and goodness. But my dream has a price...".
Andrii was born a healthy child, but at the age of three months, he became ill with meningoencephalitis. As a result – he was diagnosed with the cerebral palsy.
