Program "I Love Life"
Program "I Love Life"

We are excited to announce a merger of two programs under the umbrella of our charity fund. The program “I Love Life” is doing an array of events providing psychological support to oncology patients. We’ll be now supporting photomarathon, which already took place in 35 cities across Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Belarus. At this point hundreds of women participated and shared their stories of battling cancer. We are conducting 2 more in December and 2 more in January. 

As part of the program “With You” we are launching art-therapy course in January consisting of 10 classes, where we’ll be able to help 10 patients. We will also be opening a psychological support group in February, which will run on a weekly basis. Photo reports are coming!

Thank you all again for your help!! It all wouldn’t be possible without you!

This summer we conducted two photopicnics for cancer patients and their families! This was only possible thanks to your generous donations. 

 

First photopicnic took place in the Moscow Oncology Clinic #4 in July. We had 10 people attending, where two photographers and two make up artists did an amazing job and created a wonderful atmosphere for our ladies. The head of the clinic and a few doctors joined us for tea outside, where we all enjoyed the beautiful weather and a relaxing time.

 

Our second photopicnic took place in the famous Gorky Park in Moscow and was attended by 25 people! Summer in Moscow was cold this year, so everyone really enjoyed the beautiful weather on the last summer day of August 31st. We posted lots of videos and photos on social media, which we are happy to share in this report as well. We had Sergey Fedorov, a cancer survivor and an author, sharing his books at the event. His book was about his journey of survival

 

We are very grateful for your support! Next, we are planning to launch art therapy classes in November-December 2019 as well as yoga and meditation classes for cancer patients. Given our success with photopicnics and a high demand, we may conduct another picnic in September if the weather permits.

 

Thanks a lot!
