Mom, dad and two wonderful sons – they would be the happiest family if only the boys were healthy. The two brothers have the same form of cystic fibrosis.

The family eagerly awaited the birth of their second son. Excitement and small household chores – all waiting for the white light to shine on Timofei. Kirill, the older brother, chose his little brother’s name and firmly believed that Timofei would not be born with the same illness.

The parents already knew from their own experience the difficulties of being diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. With faith and prayer they believed that the second child would not be afflicted with the same illness. One month after being born Timofei underwent a genetic analysis. The results destroyed their dreams and expectations.

Kirill arrived at the question in a philosophical manner: “Everything would be wonderful if it weren’t for these genes…. Now in our home there are two people with the same diagnosis. Unfortunately it has been confirmed that Timofei has cystic fibrosis. We were truly saddened by this event and our parents are discouraged, but we will get used to it. Unfortunately or fortunately, we know how to fight this disease.”

The boys’ family is in a tough position financially. We hope that you will help return hope to this family. Please support the Karpachev family!

Each month the family spends around 340 USD on medical supplies – preparations for inhalation, enzymes, and vitamins. This is a wonderful family full of love and understanding.

Kirill has already established himself as a gifted child. He studies in collegium and will receive an award for participating in Olympiads on both the city and national level. He dreams of studying to be a doctor and is teaching himself the configuration and structure of computers. With your help we hope that Timofei will be able to live until he is 16 years old and hopefully long after that. All we need to do is give him the ability to become completely healthy!

The family lives in Zaporozhe.
