Our Annual Report

Our Annual Report

In 2018 Podari.Life significantly increased the program that covered unregistered medicines for cancer treatment. "Unregistered" means that Russian hospitals cannot buy them on their own expense, and that's why Russian patients need our - and your - help.

We also want to brief you on total 2018’ spending and Podari.Life activities. As required by USCC 501(c)3 regulation, in 2017 and 2018, Podari.Life has to perform full audit of the financial results. You can find 2017 audit statement here. All other documentations including annual reports and previous IRS 990 Forms you can find on the The Official Website of the Attorney General of Massachusetts. Our Federal Tax ID is 47-4165470.

Podari.Life has three ongoing programs:

First program provides doctors, hospitals and researchers with a current access to Western academic and clinical research - via relevant journals and database subscriptions paid by Podari.Life. The program also provides scientists in the field of cancer research with grants to participate in international conferences and exchanges. In 2018, Podari.Life had spent $41 167 on this program.

Second program covers rare and unregistered medications needed to cure children in Russian hospitals, primarily Dmitry Rogachev National Research Center of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Immunology. The total expense for this Podari.Life program was $528 459

Third program covers treatment and rehabilitation outside of Russian national health system - usually, in German or Israeli hospitals for Podari Zhizn wards. These patients have extremely rare forms of childhood cancer or were initially treated abroad and need follow-up operations like endoprosthesis manipulations (kids grow, you know). This program cost in 2018 was $209 907, in particular for Lera Abakumova who successfully received her treatment with your support.  

Our enlarged capacity in 2018 (almost 10 times to 2017!) occurred thanks to gifts like yours, but also because of crypto-currency initiative we endeavored. Gracious crypto-donors gifted Podari.Life and its cause a significant sum of bitcoins (and other assets) that was used to cover the cost of our programs.                                                                                 

In 2019, we aspire to continue our efforts to help Russian doctors in their fight with childhood cancer. Our programs continue to support academic and clinical development of medical personnel in hospitals and research centers, provide life-saving medicines for patients in Russia and - to the best of our capacity - cover the costs of treatment and rehabilitation when it is needed.

Defitelio for Kamil Ismailov

Defitelio for Kamil Ismailov

Together with donors of Gift of Life you helped to pay for few Defitelio courses. It costed more than almost $57 thousand USD.

Seven-year-old Kamil has a very rare illness called thalassemia, which interferes with the production of haemoglobin. He was diagnosed with it when he was only a year old. Tragically, Kamil has been forced to spend nearly his entire childhood in hospital, at the Dmitry Rogachev Centre for Pediatric Hematology. Though the Centre is nothing like an ordinary hospital, the charming, bright and cheerful Kamil hasn't had the chance have fun or go to kindergarten or school—in other words, to do any of the things that kids his age should.

2018: Half-year report

Today marks the International Day of Charity. 

It was declared by the United Nations in 2012 in order to celebrate life of Mother Teresa of Calcutta. And we believe it's your holiday, our friends, donors and supporters. So happy International Day of Charity. 
We are very grateful for your continuous help that provides us to achieve more: going beyond the initial scope, we expanded our first programs and now we are able to buy medications for kids in Russia who fight cancer.

It never would be possible unless new donors and new form of their support, such as donations in cryptocurrencies, emerged. And together we can do even more. 

You bought Defitelio - Alyona got bone marrow transplant

You bought Defitelio - Alyona got bone marrow transplant

It is due to your donations we were able to pay for Alyona’s Defitelio as soon as we were informed about her needs. Alyona started to get Defitelio on June 1; and her bone marrow transplant was performed on June 9. There is a long way to recovery in front of her now. It will definitely be difficult. Yet, we hope that with the help of mom, doctors and Defitelio, that you have provided for her, the girl will overcome her disease.

Virtual Money = Real Help

Virtual Money = Real Help

t's been only four months since we started accepting donations in cryptocurrency and the results are really amazing. More than 175 Bitcoins have been donated to Podari.Life to the moment!  

But the most important thing is that virtual money have already become real help. We are ready to tell you the stories of those whose treatment has been financed with the help of the bitcoins you donated! These are only three stories, but in fact your help gives dozens of chances for recovery.
