Sergei is Going Home

Sergei, a patient featured in our project, is planning to go home in April.  He had completed 12 cycles of therapy with a new drug for Hodgkin's lymphoma that is not yet available in Europe or Russia.  Sergei responded very well and no further treatment is planned at this time.  Once his blood counts recover, he is looking forward to his return home, to a town near Moscow.  We are very grateful to all our supporters for helping Sergei complete his treatment!  Please help Sergei pay for his lodging until the end of April. 

Thank you so much!

Help Anastasia Find a Bone Marrow Donor!

Dear Supporter,

Since the start of this project, we were able to support six leukemia patients who needed bone marrow transplants.  Thank you very much!  We are now raising funds for an 11-year old Anastasia.  Four years ago she underwent treatment for lymphoma.  Unfortunately, in 2011 she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.  Her only chance to get well is bone marrow transplant from an unrelated donor.  We need to help her raise 5,000 euros to pay for bone marrow donor search in a registry in Germany. 

On Wednesday, March 14th, all donations to our project (up to $1,000) will get bonus match from GlobalGiving.org.  This is a great opportunity to let your donation make the most impact.  In addition, GlobalGiving offers two extra bonuses:

  • The organization that raises the most funds on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving.
  • The organization that has the most unique donors on Bonus Day will receive an additional $1,000 from GlobalGiving.

Matching will last until funds run out - so make your donation early in the day! 

Thanks again for your generosity!

Help Alina in her fight against cancer!

Dear supporter,

The first child on our project who needs help with paying for cancer treatment is Alina Baurciulu. She is 10 years old. She was born in Moldova but grew up in Odessa, a Ukrainian city on the Black Sea.

Alina had an active lifestyle almost from birth. She dedicated herself to swimming, gymnastics and dancing. In spring 2011, she won the first place in her city’s dancing competition and was supposed to attend a sport camp in the summer. Unfortunately, sudden news had shuttered Alina’s and her parents’ lives.

Alina was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a type of childhood cancer located in head and neck. Unfortunately, doctors in Ukraine were unable to establish the right diagnosis and were unsure on further treatment. The family flew quickly to Israel to save their only and much loved daughter. Alina will be undergoing therapy at Sheba Medical Center in Tel Aviv until May 2012 at the earliest. The therapy will require many different approaches, such as surgery, radiation, and several regimens of chemotherapy. The cost of treatment could amount to $95,000 – $110,000.

Please donate to our project to support Alina in her fight against cancer!
