A girl of 16 years old from the Dnipro region, the diagnosis of Hodgkin lymphoma. Now he is in the bone marrow transplantation department of Okhmatdet.

She is a beautiful, active, cheerful girl who likes many of her peers, loves social networks and communication. She dreams about how she will return home, see classmates, continue to study at school, and dreams about what she will do in the future. Her loving mother supports her, she tries to help her daughter in everything and charge her with optimism and faith in the victory over cancer.

The girl fell ill almost a year and a half ago, it began with a cold and a slight cough. The treatment did not help, it only got worse. The doctor sent for an x-ray, which showed a tumor between the lungs and the heart. During this time, the girl has undergone several chemotherapy courses and is now preparing for an auto stem cell transplant.

She writes to us:

"Hello, I want to thank you so much for your help. After 6 Beacopp blocks and 2 lgev blocks, my lymph nodes on my neck increased on the right side, I got paralytic strabismus after paralysis of n.abducens dexter. And only after 4 blocks with Adcetris, which you’ve bought for me my strabismus almost disappeared and the lymph nodes on the neck and subclavian region disappeared and the tumor between the heart and lungs decreased. Thank you, Tabletochki!”
