My name is Oksana, I am 24. Since birth I was diagnosed with congenital heart defect, pulmonary atresia, type II. Ventricular septal defect. Ductus arteriosus. High pulmonary hypertension. IIAst heart failure, difficult cyanosis. Secondary polycythemia. In the age of 3 and 7 I was examined by French specialists – declared inoperable.
I try to live normal life like normal healthy people do, “do not get hung up” on the disease, as people say.
With God help I managed to get secondary education and graduate from the university, now I’m working on the job. I took medicines – “Cardiomagnil” and “Nebilet”, but they neither improved nor worsened my condition. After the last visit to the doctor I was prescribed very expensive, but very effective medication – “Sildenafil”, which allows me to breathe easier, and oxygen therapy.
I can’t pay medicines and oxygen generator by myself. Thus, I’m asking you to help me to buy oxygen generator and medicines, which though not cure, but facilitate my life.
Currently, under the campaign “Cork for Life” we purchased oxygen concentrator “BIOMED” 7F-3 (https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=1789412518012166&id=100008303044326&pnref=story) for Oksana and she gets expensive medicines for free under the Regional Program of improvement of medical care for patients with pulmonary hypertension in the Lviv region in 2015-2017 years.
