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.
