Help Cancer Patients Pay for Travel Expenses!
Jan 18, 2022

Your support saves lives!


Two years ago we told you about Muazzam, a lymphoma patient from Tajikistan. She is a young woman, a mom of a little girl.  When she was 27, she enrolled into college to study math - something she dreamed about for years, but was not able to do due to family obligations.  Unfortunately, soon after she started college she began feeling unwell and developed cough, shortness of breath and fatigue.  Eventually she was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma.  The disease resisted standard treatment that cures most patients. 

At that time, several new drugs were recently approved for patients with refractory Hodgkin's lymphoma.  Although they weren't available in Tajikistan, Muazzam could access them in Russia, and in late 2016 she traveled to St. Petersburg for the first time. 

Since 2017 we have been helping Muazzam with her travel expenses.  As a result, she was able to access new and effective immunotherapy that helped her keep her disease at bay.  Unfortunately, last week as Muazzam traveled to Russia for the first time since Covid-19 pandemic started, she was diagnosed with a relapse and was prescribed an additional medication.

We are very grateful for your support of our project that enables patients like Muazzam reach care that extends their lives!  We will make sure to report back on how your donations change the lives of cancer patients and bring them new hope in their difficult struggles. Thanks again for your kindness!

Wishing you a healthy and prosperous new year!
