Maastricht, Netherlands - Yasmin
Hello all! This is Yasmin. She is 7 years old and was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of 2.5 years.(she borned in Brazil but there is more difficult to treat or have a early diagnosis) Cystic fibrosis, also known as cystic fibrosis (CF), is a genetic disease that mainly affects the lungs, but also the pancreas, liver, kidneys and intestines. The problems that result from this include difficulty breathing and coughing up mucus due to frequent lung infections and bacteria build-up. This build-up can lead to death. The disease is genetically transmissible and her uncle died of cystic fibrosis at the age of 13. It was very difficult for the family at the time and now we are going through this struggle again. Yasmin is a very strong child and really wants to live, but she has already had numerous infections that almost led to her death. Unfortunately, it has been colonized with very strong bacteria that are also the cause of the death of many people. It’s a daily struggle and she just wants to live in the best possible way, so I decided to host a crowdfunding here. Because of the daily and nocturnal coughing fits, I want to be able to give her appropriate treatment so that she has the opportunity to grow and live a life closer to normal. My health insurance doesn’t cover many things and this makes it impossible to give her access to the best treatments. Because of the continuous supervision and the long hospital admissions she has every year, I don’t have much chance of a job. I want to get her a vibrating vest that will help with lung and mucus drainage. Since I cannot afford to buy these Vest, I am hoping for a donation from you. Give my daughter a chance to live and breathe. Thank you all. God bless you!
I wish you and your loved ones a prosperous and above all healthy 2021,
