Urgent: essential medications

By Marina | Project Leader

Etoposide is one the essential cancer drugs, a chemotherapy medication used for the treatments of a number of types of cancer including lung cancer, lymphoma, leukemia, neuroblastoma, and ovarian cancer. In use since 1980s, it had disappeared from Russian hospitals in the recent years.  New regulations effectively blocked foreign suppliers from importing medications if there are domestic manufacturers.  In reality, however, Russian pharma companies have been unable to meet demand for this and other drugs, creating a severe shortage of critically important drugs in the hospitals. 

As a result, cancer patients have been left on their own and forced to find and purchase their own medications.  Parents of children with cancer have been chasing medications all over the country or buying them off the black market. 

We are working with Advita fund in St. Peterburg to help them provide these critically important medications for their patients.  Recently, we have received a request for Eto-Gry (etoposide) for two of the young patients they support. We will be able to cover the bill from a European pharmacy for 5,000 euros thanks to your support and generosity. 

We appreciate your care for severely ill patients who are facing not just the struggle for their health but also disruptive actions of their government.  We will do everything in our power to suppor them and we know that with your help we can make a difference for many patients.

Thanks again!
