Eugene Gorbunov

Eugene Gorbunov from Permskaya oblast (Ural Region) had the very serious disease during compulsory military service in the North of Russia.

His kidneys stopped functioning and he became the invalid. For already five years Eugene lives in one of Moscow military hospitals where three times a week endures the 4-hours procedure of haemodialysis. The young man waits a surgical treatment for transplantation of donor kidney. Due to acute shortage of donor organs nobody knows how long he will wait this operation and live out of his family. Eugene is 25 years old now but he is able neither to study or work nor to create his own family.
