Let's Help Children With Cancer - Report 2021-03

During the months of December, January and February, Rugute continued its activities and provided various support to children with oncological illnesses and to families who raise them.

We are grateful to all who contributed to the $ 3693.04 support for children with oncological illnesses through the GlobalGiving system during the months from December to February. Because of these funds, we bought central vein catheters (4 pcs.) and 360 pcs. of needles suitable for them for 2152 Euros. The Fund constantly ensures that long-term central vein catheter insertion procedures are performed to children with oncological illnesses when needed, which significantly improves the psychological well-being of young patients during the treatment and helps to avoid pain and multiple peripheral catheter insertion procedures. The benefits of such catheter are described by a girl with oncological illness: “When I got sick, every needle-prick seemed like the end of the world. Later it became more difficult to endure the catheter insertion procedures, as the veins from all chemotherapies had become very weak and brittle and felt like burned. A long-term catheter greatly improved the treatment. The nurses were able to inject medication while I was sleeping and I didn't feel anything. I was able to move completely freely.”

During these past few months, we also continued our support to a ten-year-old girl with melanoma. She is the first one in Lithuania to battle melanoma, an oncological illness that is very rare in children. It is for this reason that medicine to treat pediatric melanoma are not included in the list of reimbursable medication. For the treatment of Emilija, we bought the medicine Mekinist 2 mg N30, which costs 3055 Euros.

We would like to give a loud and sincere THANK YOU to all of our loyal and loving donors on GlobalGiving. Children are getting better and happier because of you. They suffer less pain and experience more positive things than they would experience without your help.
