Project Report | Oct 26, 2016
Help Nina stay in remission!

By Marina Ouano | Project Leader

Nina
Nina

In our first project report, we told a story of Ruslana, a young woman with adrenocortical carcinoma who needed a medication from Canada to continue her treatment.  Another patient who has to take the same medication, Lysodren, is Nina from St. Petersburg.  Like Ruslana, Nina was diagnosed with adrenal tumor and underwent surgery and chemotherapy.  She is currently in remission, but has to take the medication to ensure that cancer does not return.

Nina is single.  She was born in St. Petersburg and lived there her whole life.  After graduating from college, she worked at the same company for 38 years.  She is now retired and lives on fixed income that does not cover even a quarter of the cost of the medicine.  As it is not registered in Russia, the cost of Lysodren is not covered by the insurance.  Nina has to rely on charitable support to continue her fight with cancer. 

Thanks to donations from our supporters, we were able to buy Lysodren for Nina to last her one month. Thank you so much for your support for Nina and patients like her!
