You helped!

Dear friends,

we are happy to report that we used the money raised during September and October to contribute to bone marrow donor search for Tanya S., a young Ewing's sarcoma sufferer, who has had disease recurrence since 2004.  In December 2009 she had a second relapse and after completing chemotherapy, she will need bone marrow transplant to keep disease from coming back again.

We also used proceeds to make a payment to start donor search for Igor Sh. who has myelodysplastic syndrome, requiring ongoing blood transfusions.  Since Igor is not responding to medical therapy, bone marrow transplantation is his only remaining option. 

Thank you very much for helping these patients get another chance to live!

Дорогие друзья,

мы рады Вам сообщить, что деньги, собранные нами в сентябре и октябре 2010 года пошли на оплату поиска донора костного мозга для Тани Сучковой из пос. Шушары под Петербургом, болеющей саркомой Юинга с 2004 года.  В декабре 2009 года у нее произошел второй рецидив и после завершения химиотерапии ей потребуется пересадка костного мозга, для того, чтобы предотвратить возвращение болезни.

Мы также перевели часть денег на поиск донора для Игоря Шитика, болеющего миелодиспластическим синдромом, при котором требуются постоянные переливания крови. Поскольку Игорь не отвечает на терапию медицинскими препаратами, пересадка костного мозга от донора - его единственный вариант лечения.

Спасибо Вам огромное за поддержку наших пациентов!
