Five-year-old Timur and Artem from the city of Roslavl in the Smolensk region need your help. Twins have cerebral palsy. They need special strollers that will make life easier for children and their parents. The Help to Save Life Charitable Foundation appeals to our viewers to help them raise the necessary amount for the purchase of wheelchairs. For details, contact MIR 24 correspondent Olga Zhemchugova.
It was a long-awaited and double joy. The parents were preparing for the appearance of the twins. But they were born prematurely in the seventh month of pregnancy and barely survived. Further resuscitation, the struggle for life. And at the age of 1.5 he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy.
“In our family, of course, it was at first, well, for any family it was a shock. And we are no exception. But after a while we pulled ourselves together. We are engaged in children, we go to various rehabilitations. We do at home every day, massage, exercise therapy. We do not give up and hope that our boys will be able to move independently,”says the mother of the children, Anna Argunova.
The life of the parents has since turned upside down. First, my mother had to leave work, and then my father. The Argunovs also have an older son, Zurab. Now he is 16. And he is also constantly next to his parents and brothers.
“Big brother for boys is an example in many ways. They repeat movements after him, a lot of words, he communicates with them. As an older brother, he supports, the boys are drawn to him,”said Anna Argunova.
Artem and Timur have already undergone two operations. The boys had metal plates implanted in the hip joints. In order for the effect of the operations to be preserved, they need to constantly sit correctly. And this requires special strollers. They will make life easier for twins and their parents, who every year find it more difficult to carry children in their arms.
The cost of two strollers is almost 435 thousand rubles. Charitable Foundation Help Save Lives appeals to our viewers to help raise this money. To do this, you need to send an SMS with any amount to the number 7545.
“In the family, both me and my husband are formalized to care for our children. Dad, of course, moonlights. She is looking for part-time jobs, but the amount of these strollers is very high, for our family this is simply an unaffordable amount,”said the boys' mother, Anna Argunova.
At the age of five, these children do not run in the yard like their peers, but only learn to sit. And they can say a few words. But parents and brother still hope for the best. And they are really looking forward to any help that will help make their life a little happier with their children.

It is made only in the USA. The cost is more than two million rubles. With the help of your SMS, we have already managed to collect more than three hundred and fifty thousand.
