=====================================

Mother of these guys Lyudmila is worrying about her sons and waits for the time them to begin living a full life. “My kids require kidney transplantation badly. They dream about normal life” – says Lyudmila. This family needs USD 7850 for each guy (USD 15700 total) to do kidney transplantation operations. They rely on your help!

To live a full life boys need kidney transplantation. At their age of 24 & 21 brothers Alexander and Vitaly are facing Alport syndrome disease, kidney failure.

This is a congenital disorder caused by defective gene of X-chromosome. Boys have to spend 4-5 hours twice a week under “artificial kidney machine”. This procedure is called “hemodialysis” and used for removing toxins out of the body, normalizing fluid and electrolyte imbalance. Guys practically moved to hospital instead of materializing plenty of dreams and plans they have.

Alexander, the elder brother graduated from High school, attended musical school, learned to play synth, domra and accordion. He studied in technical college for two years, but couldn’t graduate for health reasons. In 2009 sequela started and in 2010 Alex rushed to intensive care to the dialyzer. He spends nearly all his time in hospital, but dreams to live with his family and turn to music.

Vitaly, the younger brother graduated from Middle school and then studied in vocational school to get the cookery specialist profession. In 2009 his health grew worth and he also rushed to intensive care to the dialyzer. But despite this he dreams of becoming a senior chef.

Mother of these guys Lyudmila is worrying about her sons and waits for the time them to begin living a full life. “My kids require kidney transplantation badly. They dream about normal life” – says Lyudmila. This family needs USD 7850 for each guy (USD 15700 total) to do kidney transplantation operations. They rely on your help!

This family lives in township Kuybyshevo, Zaporizhya Region.
