Quarantine in hospitals is not over yet. The isolation conditions are still strict, therefore, the help of all of us is very much welcome here.

Every attention is very important here. Every child is the most important.

Today, the oncohematology department is full of children. There are even 20 of them.

Quarantine conditions are easing a bit. However, our children and their caring parents still live in conditions of strict isolation. Food aid facilitates their long hospital stay. Kids can enjoy more delicious food, mom’s cooked lunch.

Several months of complete isolation in the ward, with no contact between people other than medical staff and long waiting days. No chance to run to the nearest store so you can buy your child at least some tastier food. Such is the daily routine of seriously ill children and their parents.

We continue, together with your help, to buy children their favorite food so that they can recover faster, so that the isolation affects their emotional state as little as possible.

A sincere THANK YOU to those who contribute to the food purchased for children, to a more abundant and diverse dinner table.

Emilija

As the little hands wrap around her neck, the heart seems to melt from Emilija affection. She is so extraordinary, joyful, sweet, though she has been undergoing some serious treatment for a rare malignancy for some time.

Yesterday, Emilija and her mother were still at Lausanne Children's Hospital, where Emilija is being treated for retinoblastoma (an eye malignancy). Before the girl woke up after the anesthesia, her mother rushed to write us a message and say hello.

We always look forward to the news for every child returning from a children's hospital in Lausanne. We are happy with each of their successful steps. Today we can be delighted with Emilija mother's message:

"Hello, Egle. I was delighted that Professor Munier had already talked about treatment and care in Lithuania. If all goes well, if the tumor continues to be inactive, June will be the last visit to Switzerland.

And to this day, after a visit and anesthesia, again, great, no treatment. The instructions are the same as before: glueing our eyes, training and waiting for another visit after 6 weeks.

We're still in Lausanne, recently brought back by Emilija from the operating room, still asleep. But I wanted to write to you as soon as possible and be happy. Tomorrow I will be at home.

Thank you for your help and support, this past path has been easier for us. "

 We sincerely thank everyone, good-hearted people, for giving Emilia a chance to recover.

For children after chemotherapy, the need for nursing products increase, i.e. nappies, wet napkins, cleansers and creams for sensitive skin. During three months we distributed these nursing products: 1000 pcs of diapers, 150 pcs of wet napkins, 150 pcs of creams and cleansers. 

During the treatment period, families are facing financial difficulties. We finance fuel for families who come to the hospital from all Lithuania for several times a month. During these months we have offset fuel for $ 15 452.

Bernard in a hospital
Bernard in a hospital

Bernard's disease has returned. The boy regained his strength to fight the insidious disease.

Surgery, gamma knife, chemotherapy, radiotherapy - this is the path of the disease.

Bernard has undergone a genetic test that is very well suited to individual treatment.

The expensive study - 2662 eur, does not yet compensate the sickness funds and orderly in Lithuania.

It is a very good time for such people, because the disease is very aggressive, people's unity and family help.

We look forward to doing the genetic testing to better and better tailor your treatment and keep Bernard healthy.

During the months of November  2019, the support and charity fund Mothers Union provided children with oncological diseases, in Lithuania support for 60 500 euros.

We have prepared gifts that we will give to our children

According to one happy mother, “It's good when after long and tedious days at the hospital, we can escape for a few hours with our husbands and forget all the problems by watching performances”.

Another happy mother, who stayed at the sea for all weekend said: “Thank you for the opportunity to go with the whole family to the sea. We were at the Jazz Festival, visited the Maritime Museum, enjoyed the dolphin show, and the time went by inadvertently, and the most important thing was that we could forget about Viltyte's disease for a short time. Sincerely thank you”.

We also made dreams come true for 11 children. These dreams were such incredible, i. e. we have organized real Christmas with presents and Santa Claus.

We also congratulated 30 children with birthdays by giving them birthday presents and a small surprises.
