My oldest son Artem is ten years old, my youngest Stas is four years old. The younger has some health problem, in 2014 he had the first asthma attack. We then lived on the outskirts of Donetsk, only ten -minute walk from Maryinka. The house remained there, broken, no windows, no doors.
First, the doctors diagnosed Stas with an incorrect diagnosis - bronchitis, and for three years he was getting treatment for it. The allergist told us that all this time we were treated incorrectly; asthma can’t be treated with antibiotics. The son was repetitively in intensive care.
I did not risk the lives of children and left this year for Mariupol. And only then he was diagnosed correctly with asthma due to allergies. We counter the attacks around the clock, inhalation and taking pills on schedule, cleanliness and diet.
I am a single mother; I live on social benefits. We are getting helped with free medications from Humanitarian Headquartes of Rinat Akhmetov.
