We are joining in the search of funds for Pavel’s lungs transplantation surgery. A German clinic in Essen city agreed to conduct the surgery. Total costs will be 200,000 euros, out of which 40,000 are already collected.

Dear all, I am addressing you with the only hope for help I have left. My son needs an urgent lungs transplantation. They don’t do surgeries like that in our country, but the German clinic in Essen has agreed to do it. All the expenses comprise 200,000 euros. This is tremendous amount of money, but at least we have a chance. We cannot ever save this much on our own, and we are also pressed with time, because Pavel’s condition is critical.

I get very scared when Pavel starts to asphyxiate because the level of oxygen in his blood falls, or when his pulse rate gets to 200 beats per minute, or when his blood pressure goes up and he looks at you with eyes full of fear and starts saying goodbye to everyone. So far his organism has been able to cope with infections with the help of medicine, but how long this will last, no one can tell. Pavel says that he constantly lives in agony. As soon as he feels better though, he goes to his computer and starts the search of new technologies for his treatment and sends funny stories to his friends.

He hasn’t been able to leave the apartment for a whole year, he has to constantly take his medicines and hope for a surgery. But we are not going to give up. My husband has a 3rd degree of disability and I had to quit my job to take care of my son. Please, help us.
