Vitalik was a big strong baby when he was born – he weighed about 10 pounds – but within the first few days of his life, he started getting sick. Ahead of him were many weeks spent in intensive care units, choking and coughing till he turned blue... The doctors could not figure out what was wrong with him but kept trying, and he finally got diagnosed with cystic fibrosis by the time he was nine months old. "We have been fighting this illness for 10 years now. I don't want my child to die! He hasn't even been able to see much of life besides hospitals, medications, and IVs. Every day, we fight for his life, for every breath of air. Every single day my son has to do nine nebulizer treatments and take handfuls of medications. And when his oxygen saturation drops too low, he has to lie down and hook up his oxygen. All of Vitalik's young life is taken up by medications and hospitals. And paying for all this takes a lot of money, and we always come up short," Vitalik's mother writes to us, hoping for our help.
