    Comment: Dear brothers and sisters! I have only one way left that is to get in touch with you. I will tell in short about myself. I am Valery Matveychuk. I live in Odessa, Ukraine. Iím 43 years old. I am an invalid, I have muscular dystrophy of Duchenne, I have to stay in bed for many years. Iím a member of First Baptist Church in Odessa. My faith in our Lord Jesus Christ helps my in life and give strength to overcome the disease and problems which unfortunately are many. The Lord works miracles. Iím confined to my bed but still can ďcomeĒ to church and together with my brothers and sisters pray and praise the Lord Ė how great it is that we are together. Brothers in Christ take me in my wheelchair to church and itís not easy. Iím completely motionless and of course very heavy, but they donít leave me alone. On my birthday on July 21 in 2002 they bought me a computer on their own money. It was my dream for a long time and now I have an access to e-mail. Iíve always had a dream to have fellowship with Christians and interesting people from different towns and countries. And now the Lord through brothers and sisters made this dream come true. Also through the Internet I am looking for information about my disease Ė doctors, clinics, funds etc. ďAsk, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.Ē Matthew 7:7-8. I was 43 on July 21. I was born in 1965 and when I was 5 in 1970 I got sick. Now Iím completely helpless, hands can hardly work, I canít even take a cup, itís too heavy for me. I suddenly felt worse in fall 1979 when I was 14, then the condition got even worse in 1982 overnight when I was 17, I even remember the date Ė from August 31 on September 1. Since them the condition gets worse continuously, though there is no way to get it worse already. And at the beginning of summer in 1988 I fell down and broke my leg (femoral bone) and stayed in plaster for many months and itís a disaster for such sick as me. In fact, I broke the leg twice, first time when I fell down and the second time the drunken hospital workers broke it when they carried me from home to hospital for x-ray. But nobody was surprised, I just live in a country like this. In hospitals people often die because they just didnít get the simple medical aid. Since 1970 and until now neuropathologists prescribe the same medicine to me, which never helped me and I felt even worse. It seems like our medicine stopped developing in 1970. I have friends who always help me, I may say that I live at their expense. Seeing my condition and our medicine here in Ukraine, they decided to find help in western civilized counties. As I have a lot of free time, they told me to start search though my English is not good for that. Iím looking for hospitals, clinics, charity funds which work with sick people like me. I realize that itís impossible to bring me back to normal life but I hope that there is a way at least to help my hands and to improve my general condition. If I could just crawl it would be a big progress for me. For instance, I know that itís used gene therapy, tube cells and other methods treating muscular dystrophy of Duchenne, but all of these are not used in Ukraine, everything is on the level of 1970 and the doctors agree with that. My muscles and joints constantly aches, flabbiness. My friends see how hard it is for me and ready to help me. But the problem is to find a place where they work effectively with patients like me. Thatís why Iím asking your help. As I said before, I understand that I wonít walk any more especially after breaking the leg, but if I could work with my hands better it will be a big success for me. Dear brothers and sisters, may be there is someone who could help me with information. One interesting fact is that I was able to find hospitals where they work with muscular dystrophy but when they hear that Iím from poor Ukraine they quit writing. Itís sad but Ukraine is considered as a country of the third world. And there is no hospital which will be ready to work with an invalid from a country like that! Thatís why I decided to try to do something through Christians. Peace to you.
