Ruslana
Ruslana

Ruslana is a young woman from a remote village in Siberia.  In August of last year, she and her hudband Yuli welcomed their first child.  The childbirth was difficult and ended up in emergency c-section.  It took Ruslana a month to get better, but by December she began feeling unwell again and having sharp pains in her right side.  Local doctors prescribed only vitamins, and the pain subsided somewhat.  But in February Ruslana was taken to a hospital with dramatically increased blood pressure.  The evaluation at the hospital discovered a very large tumor in Ruslana's right abdomen.  She had a surgery at the regional oncology hospital, but by then the tumor was already inoperable. 

At this time, medication that is unavailable in Russia is Ruslana's best option.  Local government denied Ruslana's request to procure and purchase it, and she had to seek charitable help with paying for it and ordering from abroad.  Thanks to your donations, we were able to buy the first 100 tablets for Ruslana from a pharmacy in Canada. 

Thank you so much for your support for patients like Ruslana who struggle with finding best medications at affordable prices.  If you believe in our cause, please forward our report to your friends who may be interested in joining our efforts.
