She is very inquisitive and has a kind word and a heart for everyone. Animals are her particular passion, that's why she decided to become a veterinary, to treat and take care of creatures who cannot say where it hurts on their own. However, she herself needs so much courage, perseverance, and willpower to fight with a serious illness for her own life! Since her very birth, throughout 17 years of her life, Nastia has to perform a daily series of therapy exercises, procedures, and take a lot of pills. And now the time has come when she needs an oxygen unit as well to support her state, for her own lungs cannot operate on their own any longer.
Nastia has cystic fibrosis. It's a serious genetic disease which calls for your round-the-clock attention. It affects all of your body organs, including lungs. It gets harder and harder to breathe, especially during acute periods when an infection flares up in the lungs. In a state like this, an oxygen concentrator can alleviate a patient's state and save him/her from shortness of breath. This unit takes upon itself the lungs' function, filtering out the oxygen from ambient air and delivering it, in a nearly pure stage, through the person's nose. And the person feels better and can live like this for a long time, even despite his/her non-functioning lungs.
