We are very excited about the upcoming Bonus Day at Global Giving!  For the first time, all donations to our project (up to $1000 per donor) will be matched by a 50% bonus from Global Giving funds!  As a Superstar project, we get the highest bonus level. 

The Bonus Day will begin at 12:01 am EDT on Wednesday, June 13th, and will last for 24 hours, or until the bonus fund runs out.  This is a great opportunity to maximize your impact!  The funds raised will be used to support cancer patients like Sergii.  Sergii needs to undergo bone marrow transplant at National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland.  While his treatment there is free, he needs to pay for his lodging expenses.  Sergii is 21 and is unable to work while he is in the US.  He comes from a family in a rural area of Ukraine that is struggling to earn its living.  Our support will enable him to undergo life-saving treatment. 

Please donate to our project on June 13th and make a difference for patients like Sergii. 

Thank you!

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!

Dear Supporter,

all the best wishes to you and your loved ones in the New Year!  We are very grateful to you for your support. 

Since we began this project, your help enabled two young lymphoma patients to pay for their lodging in South Carolina where they are continuing their participation in expanded access study.  One of the patients is now in complete remission, while another is in a partial remission.  We expect them to stay in the US for a few more months, so we are continuing to fundraise for them. 

Thanks again!

Dear supporter,

On October 19, GlobalGiving.org is matching at 30% all online donations up to $1,000 per donor per project!  There is $100,000 available in matching funds starting at 12:01 am EDT until 11:59pm EDT or until matching funds run out.   In addition to the 30% match, GlobalGiving is offering a $1,000 bonus to the project that raises the most funds that day and a $1,000 bonus to the project that receives donations from the most individual donors

Please join us on Wednesday and help us support cancer patients who need help with lodging expeses!  Our first check will go to St. Francis Hospital in Greenville, South Carolina, which arranged lodging for two lymphoma patients from Russia and Ukraine.  They have already been treated for almost six months under free expanded access study and are in remission, but need to undergo a few more treatment cycles to strengthen the result. 

Thank you for your kindness!
