Third brain surgery for Ivan

Ivan is from Ukraine. He is 7, but has already undergone two cranial surgeries. In summer of 2018 he was diagnosed with astrocytoma, a type of brain tumor, and was urgently operated. Then the second operation had to be done after he had a relapse in February 2020. Vanya had both surgeries in Okhmatdyt hospital in Kyiv. Unfortunately, the tumor could not be removed completely. And recently it started growing again, which means Vanya needs another surgery. Ivan’s parents turned to Sant Joan de Deu Hospital in Barcelona that specializes in pediatric cancer, and it agreed to admit Ivan for surgery and further treatment. However, the treatment has to be paid for out-of-pocket and Ivan’s parents cannot afford it. They are doing their best to raise funds to save their son.

Our project granted Ivan's parents 1,000 euros for the expenses associated with the surgery.  Thanks to your support, this year we were able to grant funds to 29 other children and 2 adults undergoing treatment for cancer.  And we would love to do more.

This week you can make your donation go even further: from Monday, September 12 until Friday, September 16 all donations of up to $50 to our project will be eligible for a 50% match.  We hope you consider making additional donation this week to take advantage of this great opportunity.  Thank you and stay well!
