Help Danylo defeat eye cancer!


Baby Danylo is the third child in his family, and the first boy.  On September 16, 2020, at the age of  just one month, he was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, a rare type of eye cancer. His family was devastated to learn that the hospital in Kyiv where Danylo was admitted, or any other medical facility in Ukraine, cannot offer modern methods of therapy because of lack of equipment and technology for this kind of cancer.  Retinoblastoma requires highly specialized care, experienced specialists and regular follow-up assessments to make sure it does not recur and spread throughout the body.  Through cancer support groups, the family came in contact with Jules-Gonin Eye Hospital in Lausanne, Switzerland, which is a center of excellence in care for retinoblastoma.  The hospital agreed to take Danylo in for urgent treatment, which started on September 24, 2020. 

Danylo's family pulled all of their resources together and with fundraising efforts they managed to deposit the amount needed to start treatment. Treatment has been successful so far, which gives them hope for beating cancer and retaining Danylo's eyesight.   However, after multiple chemotherapy sessions and doctors' visits, the deposit has been depleted and now the family is looking for financial assistance to continue Danylo's treatment. 

Thanks to your support, we were able to issue a grant to Danylo's family and get them closer to beating cancer.   Did you know that next week, any donation of up to $50 will receive a 50% match from GlobalGiving?  That's a great way to help kids like Danylo who have to travel abroad to access the right treatment.  We hope you join us next week, from Monday, March 8th through Friday, March 12th and show your support for our cause!

Thank you so much!

Stay safe!
