Oksana Timoshkina is a little over thirty. For the past ten years she has lived heroically. She set a goal for herself - to escape from her native village, settle in a big city, in Rostov, buy an apartment, give her son a good education, drag another mother and sister from the village to Rostov. And she almost succeeded.
For ten years Oksana followed her plan strictly. She moved to Rostov, rented an apartment, got a job … For one job, for another, for a third - and rather quickly realized that it was impossible to make money like that and her dream would not come true.
Oksana decided to work not for the shareholders of a certain company, but for herself. She decided to get a profession that would be very popular and at the same time rare. And she found such a profession - something between a plasterer and an artist. Oksana took up decorative plaster.
This is a difficult profession. There are many different types of decorative plaster. It is not enough just to plaster, you also have to go to seminars and master classes, to master more and more new techniques. Oksana attended such master classes and within a few years has become a master, whose services are needed by everyone and to whom there is a queue.
Every day Oksana got up at six in the morning, from eight she was already working, rarely finished work before ten in the evening. And the next morning - all over again.
While the son was little, his grandmother helped to raise him, and when he grew up a little and went to school, he spent almost all the time alone. He is a smart boy: he warmed up his own food, prepared his own lessons, did not goofball, was fond of photography and travels around Russia. Oksana did not spare money for her son to travel with the class to Kazan, to Petersburg, to Moscow - so that he could see the world, so that from an early age he understood how huge the world is and how many opportunities it contains.
Oksana saw her son only sleeping at night, and even in the morning, when she was feeding him breakfast. And I also spent those two weeks of the year with my son when I allowed myself a vacation. But such iron self-discipline yielded results.
Oksana had many good clients. Oksana grew steadily professionally. Oksana rented housing for herself, her sister and mother in Rostov. Oksana bought a car to take orders not only in Rostov, but also in neighboring cities - in Bataysk, Novocherkassk, Volgodonsk … Oksana received a loan to buy an apartment. Oksana found an apartment to buy it …
There were only a few days left until the completion of the deal. Oksana worked in Volgodonsk, and there, two hundred kilometers from her home, she suddenly had a very bad back. So much that I had to call an ambulance. Oksana was taken to the hospital, but the doctor did not find anything serious and attributed the pain to the fact that Oksanina's back had a cold and hard work. For a couple of days Oksana lay under an IV, and the pain went away. And a couple of days later she returned with renewed vigor. Now not only my back ached, but also my legs and stomach. The pain was so strong that they had to hire a person to take Oksana in her car home to Rostov.
In Rostov, the doctor said: "Your bones are decomposing, you should see an oncologist." The oncologist said that Oksana had leukemia, but could not determine which one. I had to go to Moscow. In Moscow, at the Hematological Research Center, Oksana was finally diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
This is the year of treatment. Several courses of severe chemotherapy. I had to give up buying an apartment in Rostov. I had to give up my rented apartment. Oksana's mother, sister and son had to go back to the village. And they live all this year on the very loan that Oksana took to buy an apartment and bring her dream to fruition.
The money is running out. We can say that it is already over. And Oksana still needs a bone marrow transplant, and the preparation of the transplant costs 400,000 rubles.
