Do you remember Katya?
Katya was born prematurely, in the eighth month of pregnancy and was immediately transferred to intensive care as she could not breathe on her own. She was diagnosed with bilateral pneumonia. Her condition seemed to improve, Katya could breathe on her own. But suddenly attacks of suffocation began. Testing found she had damage to her brain. At the Kharkov Institute of Genetics there was an anomaly of the lung identified and signs of a rare genetic disease. But to confirm this, an additional expensive examination is needed which cannot be performed in Ukraine.
For an entire year, her mother has been at the hospital with Katya Monday to Friday and in the weekend Dad stays with her. The family dreamed of all being together and living at home. But to do this, they needed equipment that would allow enable her to be cared for at home.
So with your help, we purchased a suction machine and a portable infusion pump for her.
After recovering from sepsis and surgery, Katya was finally stable enough to go home in March! Since being home, she has gained 4kgs (almost 9 pounds).
Due to recent events, her family are struggling to provide her with regular formula that will help her continue to gain weight.
We are raising funds to purchase formula for Katya for the next 3 months. Can you help?
