It is time to report you on June 1st activities and results. As you may remember, The International Children Day is very important for us. Many friends of ours use the occasion to celebrate - and fundraise - for our cause, fight with childhood cancer in Russia. This year, Podari.Life had declared - and ultimately reached it - a very practical goal, to raise $12,700 USD to help 13-years old Yegor Malyar whose complex chemotherapy required addressing side effects such as pneumonia and aspergillosis. Yegor - and many other small patients and wards of "Podari Zhizn" needed a medicine Fortecortin.
With all your support, with a generous giving during June 1st events (and other longer initiatives, like Hermiona Education' Global Open House ) we managed to pay for Yegor's medications. As we told you earlier, the excess of Fortecortin will help other patients at least until the end of 2019.
In June your donations helped us to cover the cost of medications for two other kids who fight cancer: Yaroslava and Dima.
Yaroslava Lavrukhina (7 years old) from Tula region needed Kidrolase ($19,350 USD), a treatment not registered in Russia. Again, not only the medication helped Yaroslava (she’ve already completed ALL treatment at Dima Rogachev Center and now is back at home), but doctors now have reserves for 14 other small patients who undergo chemotherapy in Moscow.
Your giving had helped Dima Siluyanov from Perm, northern Russia. He is "Podari Zhizn" yongest ward right now, born in 2018. His diagnosis is scarier than a cancer - multiple deficiency of an immune system. Like cancer patients, Dima needed bone marrow transplant - and it helped! Your help allowed us to pay for Defitelio ($6,683.45 USD), a crucial unregistered medication that is required as a part of treatment.
