Give more meds thanks to Bonus Day!

Alexander
Alexander

Thank you so much for supporting our project!  We have raised nearly $5,000 to date to help patients who cannot afford life-saving medications.  These are usually newer and more effective medications that are not manufactured or sold in Russia and have to be ordered abroad.

One of the patients we supported recently is Alexander from Rostov region.  When he was six months old, he was diagnosed with an abdominal tumor.  However, local doctors did not recommend starting treatment untili he turned a year old.  By then, the tumor spread all over his body.  Alexander had chemotherapy and surgery to remove the tumor, and then he was referred to St. Petersburg for transplantation of his own stem cells.  The procedure required medications that were not available in the city, and Alexander's family requested help.  We paid for the required medicine to be shipped from Germany, and in May 2017 Alexander underwent transplantation.  He will now be monitored closely to prevent disease recurrence.

We are very grateful for your support and helping us be in the position to support patients like Alexander!  On Wednesday, July 12th, GlobalGiving will offer bonus funds as part of GG Rewards Bonus Day.  This is the only time during the year that all donations up to $1,000 will be matched at 50% (while the $110,000 in matching funds remain). Also, all day long there will be a 100% match on new recurring donations and, at the end of Bonus Day, the projects with the most funds raised and the most donors secured will each receive a $1,000 bonus prize. Additional prizes include social media promotion, homepage time, and a feature in GlobalGiving donor newsletter.

Join us from 9am EDT (16:00 Moscow time) to 11:59pm EDT on July 12th and make sure to donate early to get the 50% match! 

Gratefully,

Advita USA team
