Help Konstantin travel for eye surgery!

By Marina Ouano | Project Leader


From April 9th to 13th GlobalGiving will run Little by Little campaign, designed to help celebrate the power of crowdfunding. During that week, it will match donations up to $50 at 50% while the $50,000 in matching funds remain.  At the end of the week, there will be $3,000 in bonus prizes for the top five fundraising projects. In addition, there will also be a 100% match for new recurring donations started during this week!

We are hoping you will participate in this campaign and contribute to help patients like Konstantin.  Konstantin is now 12. As a baby, he was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma, a cancer of retina. His left eye could not be saved and had to be removed to prevent further spread of cancer. Konstantin went through three years of chemotherapy and radiation. His vision in the remaining eye suffered too. During the last year it dropped down to just 3%. Konstantin’s parents traveled from Ukraine to Essen, Germany for surgery to replace his lens and correct the defects that developed as a result of radiation therapy. However, an additional surgery is needed as further damage was discovered behind the lens. Konstantin will travel to Essen in early April and his family is asking for support with expenses.

Families like Konstantin's are often struggling even long after cancer has been defeated.  Long-term side effects of treatment can linger for years or flare up decades later.  Pediatric patients require careful follow-up care to ensure they are growing and developing normally.  Families often continue to struggle financially for years after completing primary treatment. 

Your contribution, however small, will go a long way to help Konstantin preserve and improve his vision.  Please consider particpating in the matching campaign or becoming a recurring donor.  Thank you for everything you do!
