Inspiring Cancer Survivors

"It is impossible to break the will to live!"
"It is impossible to break the will to live!"

Dear friends,

thank you for supporting kids with cancer in Ukraine!

In the pictures, you can see Vika and Anton who got help when they needed it most. When they had cancer. Now they are survivors. They are not afraid to tell their stories and to show their pictures when they were ill.

Agreeing to take part in this photo project is a bold move for them, as they open up about this part of their life despite the stigmatization of cancer in Ukraine. They do it for kids who are on treatment now. They want to change society’s attitudes – from irrational fear to understanding that cancer is not a death sentence. 

Thanks to this experience, they have become who they are today. Anton is a marathon runner who never misses opportunities to participate in charity runs in support of kids with cancer. We know volunteers like Anton coming to speak with kids on treatment about such simple but painful and important topics as hair loss and their appearance.

The survivors say how valuable their experience is. Later on, growing up, they admit that they got to know themselves better and realized that even when they were ill, they still could have fun, dream, create, learn, make friends, and love. Cancer couldn’t stop them.

Thank you for helping kids in Ukraine survive cancer and inspire others!
