In our last report we told you about Savva, a young doctor from Siberia who has been battling Hodgkin's lymphoma since 2017. Since then, he has been able to find a clinic in Barcelona that offered to accept him for CAR T-cell treatment. Thanks to your support, Savva will be able to travel for treatment in early March and get another chance to beat cancer.
We are also continuing to work with Advita Fund in St. Peterburg. Although they are frequently able to find donors in the Russian registries, recently one of the patients they support asked for help with paying for the bone marrow donor search in the foreign registry. Travel restrictions affected Russian charities like Advita Fund as well - it is now more difficult to deliver transplant material in time for the transplant procedure. However, they are still doing their best to support the cancer patients.
If you would like to increase the impact of your donation, please mark your calendars for the week of April 3-7. During that week, GlobalGiving will add 50% bonus on all donations up to $50 as part of its annual Little by Little campaign. Your little acts of kindness can make a BIG difference!
