Children's Day

Dear Friend,

June 1 marked Children's Day celebrations around the world. In many countries, children get presents, and parades and ceremonies are held. On this day, adults are once again reminded how precious their children are to them and how fragile they can be.

Children with cancer are particularly vulnerable. You too can join and help children with cancer get a gift - a gift of life. Your contribution will go to children like Alina whose families struggle with paying the bills for treatment. Alina, a 10-year old from Ukraine, is still fighting her cancer - rhabdomyosarcoma - and needs our support.

We are very close to finishing fundraising for Alina. Please help us meet our goal of $1,000 and let her family breathe a little easier.

Thank you so much!

P.S. On March 19, we transferred $1,000 to Alina's hospital - however, we borrowed funds from our Patients on Treament Abroad program. Please help us reimburse Alina's portion to support other children who urgently need support.

Help Raisa find a bone marrow donor!

Raisa
Raisa

Dear Friend,

Raisa is a history student, with a particular interest in archeology.  Last summer, after returning from an expedition, she began feeling unwell.  A visit to a doctor showed a blood test abormality, and soon after, Raisa was shocked to learn that she had leukemia.  Four cycles of chemotherapy put her in remission, but unfortunately, it did not last.  In March 2012 Raisa relapsed, and now she can only have a hope of a cure if she undergoes bone marrow transplant from a donor. Her family does not have a matching donor, which means she needs to search for an unrelated donor from abroad.

Please help Raisa cover the costs of bone marrow donor search in the registry in Germany.  Thank you!

Help Ksenia with lodging expenses!

Ksenia
Ksenia

Dear Friend,

Ksenia is a 12-year old from Russia who had recently arrived to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston to continue her treatment.  She was diagnosed with an extremely rare type of sarcoma - only a few hundred patients have been reported with this disease in the last 20 years.  In Russia, just a handful of patients were diagnosed previously and none of them survived.  By contrast, MD Anderson sees patients like Ksenia just about every week, and the center designed special treatment methods just for this diagnosis. 

Ksenia's family and friends raised funds for treatment, but still need help with paying for lodging.  Please support Ksenia in her fight with cancer!
