Because of pseudomonas aeruginosa Maxim’s lungs function worse and worse every day. To fight the infection he urgently needs one course of treatment with antibiotic Bramitob.

From his mom’s letter:

When I was expecting my second child, me and my husband both were so happy. It is hard to explain how exciting it is to feel a new life grow inside you. Maxim was born and his health problems started. I didn’t know what to do, my child was loosing wight and coughing all the time. We almost never left the hospital. When he was 8 months old, the doctors diagnosed him with this horrible disease, cystic fibrosis. For the longest time I couldn’t recover from this news, but gradually all the treatment procedures became our daily routine.

Now my son is 7 years old, he went to the first grade and sometimes he proudly gets A’s in his classes. He likes constructing cars from Lego, he draws beautifully and he has many friends. I can tell that in fact he suffers, even though he hides it from his classmates. Every day infection destroys his lungs and it gets harder and harder to breathe. I ask you to help us purchase this antibiotic Bramitob that will fight the infection. It is our only hope for our son to live a full life.
