As we are gradually adjusting to life during pandemic, we are still working through disruptions of supply chains and travel restrictions. However, as patients continue needing our support with medications, we have to find ways to help them.
We have been recently asked by our sister charity, Advita Fund in St Petersburg, to help pay for an antifungal drug, Amphomoronal. It is needed to treat children with cancer who come to St. Petersburg for treatment from all over Russia. Patients with cancer who are treated with chemotherapy or receive a bone marrow transplant have an increased risk of picking up fungal infections. Such infections can be life-threatening. Antifungal drugs are designed to prevent or overcome these infections.
We are raising funds to purchase 100 packages of Amphomoronal that will be shipped to Russia from Germany. It is not registered in Russia and has no domestic analogues. The government-funded healthcare does not pay for this medication, which means it is left up to the charities to supply hospitals and patients with this drug. Your support will help us ensure that children with cancer are able to access appropriate medications at the right time and in the right dosage.
This week, you have a great opportunity to maximize your impact - Little by Little campaign that starts on Monday, Spetember 14th, will match at 50% all donations of up to $50 through Friday, September 18th! And if you sign up for monthly donations, they will add on another 100% of your donation! Thank you so much for staying with our project and supporting cancer patients!
