Support Ukranian kids with cancer!


Little Solomiia and her mother are war refugees from Ukraine.  They found shelter at Solomiia's aunt place in Poland. Unfortunately, the horrible war in Ukraine, where Solomiia's father is a soldier, is not the only terrible thing in her young life. Solomiia has neuroblastoma. Treatment was brutally discontinued and the only hope for this little girl is help from all over the world. Solomiia and her mom have support from the local Polish community, but there are many others who need help, and cancer treatment is expensive for non-residents of European Union. 

Neuroblastoma is a very aggressive cancer and it requires highly specialized care that takes years.  Solomiia traveled to a Children's cancer hospital in Barcelona to access immunotherapy that is needed to improve survival of neuroblastoma patients.  She needed our support to afford her travel and lodging expenses, and fortunately we were able to support her and her mom. 

To date this year, we were able to support 32 kids with cancer with their travel and treatment expenses abroad. Most of them were Ukrainian.  There are many other kids like Solomiia whose treatment at home was interrupted by war.  As long as war goes on, more and more lives will be distrupted.  Unfortunately, there is no end in sight to war, and we ask for your committment to support Ukrainian kids in 2023.

We are very grateful for your support during this difficult year and please know that we truly appreciate your care for some of the most vulnerable among us - kids with cancer.

Hope you have an amazing year ahead!  Our best wishes to you and your loved ones!
