It all started when...

As a group of enthusiasts with previous involvement in "Podari Zhizn" activities, all born in Russia but now living in the US we couldn't stop thinking about what we could do to close the gap between quality of health care, treatment and rehabilitation in the USA and Russia. The Russian economy is now struggling and the Government funding of the healthcare system has taken a hit. The US and Russia’s governments may be having a standoff, but the people of these two great countries are not. Openness, generosity, mutual support and friendship are a part of the cure for a disease that knows no borders – cancer. We are convinced that sharing American experience in containment and fighting childhood cancer can be an important step towards increasing the survival rates for childhood in Russia. That is why on June 1st 2015, we founded Podari.Life Inc, an US-based public charity with a mission to advance public education about childhood cancer and to increase awareness among medical professionals in Russia. We are just born, but we have our big sisters to help us with their expertise and to inspire us with their vision and beliefs. We share a common goal with our sister charities: a child’s life should not hang on money.
