We urgently need your help…. please join us in the fight for Denis’ life!

On June 4th, Denis was brought into this world. His family loved him with all their hearts even before he was born. Denis was born during the 26th week of his mother Nataliya’s pregnancy. Upon birth, he weighed only 900 grams and his lungs had not fully developed. The very next day Denis was moved into the Department of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care at the Regional Clinical Children’s Hospital in Zaporozhe.

As of right now, he has been diagnosed with congenital pneumonia and respiratory failure and is in an incubator. Denis is still not able to breath on his own – he is in need of constant care and expensive treatment. Unfortunately due to the severity of his condition, doctors are not able to provide any positive news.

The family has practically spent all of their money on treating their son and they are unable to afford the remaining treatments. Because of this difficult situation we ask each one of you to help save Denis’ life. God gave us the little boy and we need to make sure he has the ability to continue living. Denis will get better! We only need to help out the family financially so that their son can grow up one day. We want to say thank you to each and every person that makes a donation.

The family lives in the village of Lanstevo, Zaporozhe region
