In 2018 Tania’s life changed a lot. In winter she had one daughter, and in spring she had four girls in her care. And by the fall it was found that one of her foster babies had cystic fibrosis – a severe genetic disease affecting the whole body. No, Ulia is not dying. Yes, a lot of energy, patience, and money are necessary to keep Ulia alive. But Tania is not going to retreat. She delves into particular therapies, teaches the baby regular habits – special exercises, inhalations, a lot of drugs every day – and asks our help in purchasing the equipment necessary for the treatment of Uliana and medicines for her.
Cystic fibrosis is a disease that kills the lungs and gradually takes away the ability to breathe from a person. Therapy helps to delay and slow down the process as much as possible.
Also, a person with cystic fibrosis has to take a lot of supporting drugs all life, because the disease is complex and affects many organs. Without support, they would wear out quickly. But we know that it is possible to live with cystic fibrosis for a long time. Let's all help together to give this chance to little Uliana.
