Artem is 4 years old. When he was 6 months old he was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a genetic condition that results in progressive muscle wasting.
Sadly the disease is progressing with an increase in respiratory failure. Artem needs a NIVL device (non-invasive ventilation of the lungs). Thanks to our charity partner, the device has been purchased. But the device needs to be configured correctly for Artem. This includes assessment by specialists, of which there are only a few in Ukraine, hospitalization for several days, selection of the mode of ventilation of the lungs and monitoring of effectiveness before he can be discharged home.
$1000 is needed to cover the cost of Artem's assessment and treatment. His quality of life and well-being will be greatly improved!
