No one knows what can give life. Cherish it begins when you stand on the edge of a precipice. The first unpleasant symptoms at 39-the summer inhabitant of Lviv Mykola Pavlov appeared after the holiday at the seaside. Suddenly yellowed whites of the eyes and skin led to doctors who began to treat hepatitis C.

Diet, endless drip, cleansing the liver procedures have not yielded positive results. Not helped by the treatment provided in the current Ukraine free program for the treatment of hepatitis C. did not give a survey in Italy where desperate went Nicholas, where doctors confirmed the diagnosis and continued to treat according to the same procedure.

The disease also progressed – started swelling, the family and the patient sought a way out of the situation. The diagnosis which was put by the specialists of the Kiev Institute of surgery and Transplantology named after Shalimov, sounded like a sentence: cirrhosis of the liver, to live there a few months, can save emergency transplant.

However, the transplant was difficult. In Ukraine are allowed only transplant related, none of the relatives of Nicholas the donor could not be – did not fit the blood type.

Data recipients and potential donors to conduct the necessary research put into the base and the puzzle came together – Paul’s wife Larisa could save the life of Suleiman and his son Izzet came to Nicholas.

Each other donors met the day before the operation. Immediately there was a mutual trust, an overwhelming desire to help.
