Parents of seriously ill children, such as seven-year-old Maxim and Vadim Savushchiki from Gomel (Belarus), often seek help from the «Novoye Pokolenie” foundation.
Twins were born in 2014. Initially, there were no anomalies, the boys ate well, grew, and gained weight. But Olesya and Yuri began to notice that the children almost could not move their legs and hold their heads. The examination at the hospital divided the family's life into "before" and "after". The children were diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy, Werdnig-Hoffmann genetic disease.
When Vadim was only four months old, he stopped breathing. The boy was taken to the Gomel hospital. In a month and a half, the same happened to Maxim. The brothers were put on ventilators.
To take their children home, Olesya and Yuri Savushchiki opened a charity fundraiser. Having bought a ventilator with all the additional equipment for the apparatus themselves, the parents transported Maxim and Vadim home.
The boy’s mom turned to the "Novoye Pokolenie" with a request to purchase the consumables for the ventilator, which the children practically need every day. The charitable foundation, of course, helped the Savuschik family, and the issue of purchasing additional materials for mechanical ventilation was resolved.
