Day 4 - CF Vests Worldwide 8 Days of Love

“Naya’s tragedy began six months after she was born. Initially, there was no clear diagnosis of the disease due to delays in testing for several months due to the lack of a sweat test kit. For two months,the little girl suffered from severe pneumonia, which required hospitalization more than 8 times in two months. A sweat test was performed and the case was diagnosed with hereditary cystic fibrosis.

Today, I am completely unable to secure a normal life for my daughter. I didn't expect the situation to get to what it was, and I couldn't take it anymore. I see her in pain in front of me every day, and I can do nothing to ease her pain, especially when she coughs. I have turned to many charities, but I am ashamed of myself and of asking for help because our appeal was not dealt with, and I can no longer bear the view of medicine in the Gaza Strip that Naya's death is only a matter of time.
