Is breathing easy?

The question is rhetorical for those who breathe freely and deeply. But there is a category of people for whom the ability to breathe is associated with many difficulties. Their lungs are attacked from birth by cystic fibrosis. A genetic disease brings a lot of troubles to the whole body, but it is the respiratory organs that get the most.

A gene breakdown leads to the fact that from the first days of life, thick mucus is produced in the patient's lungs, which dangerous, aggressive and antibiotic-resistant bacteria like so much that they create whole colonies in it. These bacterial infections are difficult to treat, even with long courses of forced antibiotic therapy, and so they often become chronic. This, in turn, leads to the gradual destruction of the lungs: bronchiectasis, atelectasis, pneumothorax, a critical decrease in lung function. It sounds scary, but in reality it is even scarier.

To prevent this, people with cystic fibrosis must constantly clear their lungs with inhalation, breathing exercises, and physical activity. Inhalation for this disease is one of the whales of daily life-long therapy that really helps you breathe. Not any inhaler can withstand 3 to 12 inhalations a day, but only powerful compressor devices designed for a similar load.

The purchase of three such inhalers is the goal of this project. Together with them, we also collect funds for consumable kits for these inhalers, because they need to be changed every 3-6 months (sometimes more often), and they cost a lot for financially exhausted families. We also need to purchase repair kits for those inhalers that have already served our wards for some time, but have not exhausted their resource.

This is how one project combined several components, each of which is important to make it easier for people with cystic fibrosis to breathe. Can you help us with it?
