"Lack of proper treatment is torture! If you have cystic fibrosis, you feel constant suffocation. As if a plastic bag was pulled over your head and forced to breathe in it. This disease requires lifelong treatment," this is how Olga describes her life. For more than 8 years in a row, she has been living thanks to the help of philanthropists, since, unfortunately, the state has little support for people with such a diagnosis.

"With cystic fibrosis, absolutely all internal organs suffer, so for as long as I can remember, I have been taking a large number of medications. My life and the life of my loved ones is like the movement of a squirrel in a wheel – in a circle without stopping, in a constant struggle for every breath of air. Since childhood, when  everyone went to school, I was treated and studied at home.Every morning, both then and now, begins and ends with inhalations, pills and physical therapy. Now I have grown up and work, but the daily rituals are the same, only the number of drugs has grown exponentially...

Every day I learn to live without giving up, I learn not to pay attention to people who shy away from me or give advice on coughing, I have to humiliate myself, knocking officials in search of medicines, every day I force myself to be strong. I can and want to live a better life, I want to work fully, to love, to have children, to do what I love, but... Again and again, I cannot survive without a struggle. Now I am in a helpless state, there are only two ways out: to accept and slowly fade away, or to do the unreal and start a fight!  I choose the second path, until my last breath! To do this, I need to start a course of treatment with Bramitob and Colomycin as soon as possible".

One course of treatment lasts 6 months. It will most likely need to be repeated. After all, Olga has been fighting Pseudomonas aeruginosa for more than a year, she is resistant to most antibiotics. Even if Olya works around the clock, she will not collect that kind of money on her own. But we believe that together we can cope with it!

 "Please help me breathe! Take those damn bags off my head!".
