In June I reported about a 21-year old Ukrainian, Sergii, who was planning to undergo bone marrow transplantation at National Cancer Institute. On October 9th he received a transplant from his younger brother who was a perfect match. Now Sergii is going to go through a critically important time, during which his body will adjust to new bone marrow. He will need to be very careful due to high risk of infection, which his body will not be able to fight effectively while his immune system is rebuilding itself.
Sergii needs to stay in an assisted living facility for at least the first 3 months or so. There he will have around the clock access to nursing help, in case of an emergency. Please help us help Sergii be safe during this period.
On Wednesday, October 17th, you will be able to increase your impact during Global Giving Bonus Day campaign. Starting at 12.01 am EDT, our project will get 30% bonus on all donations, until the bonus funds run out. Global Giving will match all donations up to $1,000 per donor.
We will be very grateful for your support!
