  • Sasha's Story

    In a few months Sasha's dad had a terrible heart strike. She spent days and nights at the hospital hoping he would survive. Right half of his body was paralized and for the first time in his life he admitted that he was helpless without his daughter and his wife (Sasha's mom). He was lucky to have the best doctors in the city and his friends also made sure he would get the best recovery medicine too. Unbelievable also happened: Sasha's dad quit smoking and never drank again. By now he is almost fully recovered, although some of the functions of his right hand such as strong grasping were completely lost. For the first time in many years Sasha's dad came back into the family: regular family dinners and gatherings became a normal part of their lives again.For the first time in 10 years they went on a family trip. For the first time in many years Sasha experienced what it feels like to have dad.

    How many of us really have to come through all these struggles in order to realise that their family and close people are the most important part of their lives?! How many of us think that diabetes is harmless and can wait until we are done with "more important" things in our lives such as work and money?! I wish people could spend at least an hour every day with their families and on monitoring their diabetes.So simply and so hard at the same time.
