Rolan has a typical life story for a patient with primary immunodeficiency. The correct diagnosis was set with a delay of 3 years after multiple cases of severe bronchitis and pneumonia, and also a surgery for acute hematogenous osteomyelitis of the right femur and the right shinbone took place. There were no comforting forecasts from the doctors, but a replacement therapy with intravenous immunoglobulin literally put the boy on his feet.
However, another misfortune has occurred - deficit in the regional health budget of the Republic of Bashkortostan. Certain time is needed to convince regional officials of the Ministry of Health in their duty to provide Rolan with vital immunoglobulin. In the meantime, therapy cannot be interrupted in no case. Intravenous immunoglobulin is the only barrier to infections, each of them may be deadly. Next infusion is scheduled for July 26.
With monthly immunoglobulin replacement therapy being available, Rolan will grow up healthy and normal. We’ll help him to get the medicine, won’t we?
