It is impossible to explain why this happened to them. Something may be attributed to heredity, something to statistics, something to banal coincidence or inexplicable «fate». But nothing explains why Sasha and Natalia undergo such an ordeal. Natalia Zhukova is 14 years old. Her brother Sasha — 18. Doctors have diagnosed them with " congenital thrombastenia (Glanzmann's disease). There is a terrible disease in these words, it makes every day as the struggle for life. Any scratch leads to bleeding, which is impossible to stop at home and incoagulability takes place. Kids always need blood transfusion. During one of the transfusions the virus of "Hepatitis C" was brought to children. According to statistics, 20 people out of 100 with hepatitis C have cirrhosis as a result, 5 people out of 100 die from the effects of chronic hepatitis C (liver cancer or cirrhosis). To avoid these consequences, it is necessary to have course of treatment.
All ordeals with the children fall on mother's shoulders (Alla Zhukova), who brings her children up alone because her husband died. Of course, maximum of the time she devotes to children treatment but not work. The salary which mother gets and disability pension of children is only enough to existence, and not for treatment. The mother did all that she could. For a long time she has been struggling for life and health of children without assistance. Children were examined by the best specialists in Chernivtsi, Lviv, Kyiv. The treatment has been prescribed, but it is so expensive that is beyond family's strength. The monthly treatment of each child costs more than 15000 UAH. The real chance for normal life at such diagnosis can be only after the whole year treatment. Let's help this courageous family. The mother does not lose self-control and hopes for the help of good people to purchase medicines. For each spent day the family is grateful to God and people who want to help them. If you are not indifferent to the fate of Zhukov family, we plead for your help. Children need your support: material and informational and moral.Material support
