Nickolay Shmatko

September 03, 1994

Whip-round amount 95 000$

Diagnosis: Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Nickolay never could think that such a complex heart disease will appear in such young age, in 21, when life is just beginning. The disease didn’t disturb him for a long time, was asymptomatic, the boy lived a normal life, studied, fond of music and photography, had plans for future, wanted to have family, but everything was ruined in one moment. Disease reminded of itself and now progresses with every passing day, the heart stopped to pump blood, interatrial septal is thickening. There is no curative treatment.  The last disease outcome is heart transplantation. Condition is worsening with every passing day. Doctors did the best as they can to improve his condition, but cardiac muscle was injured due to overload and is functioning badly. Cardiac impairment is developing – heart inability to pump the volume of blood needed for the normal life of body. Fortis clinic (India) is ready to take Nickolay for examinations and further heart transplantation.
