Ekaterina Himenko, born on July, 12, 1999

Diagnosis: hybrid acute leukemia, CNS negative, high risk group, ischemic stroke (11.10.12).

Since Ekaterinas blood pressure dropped suddenly, she was taken to the intensive care unit yesterday. Unfortunately Ekaterina passed away last night. Lets keep her family in our prayers!

Before June 2012 Ekaterina Khimenko lived a life of a happy teenager. And then all of a sudden She got pain in joints and her muscles got weak. In the end of the summer she began to throw up after every food intake. She was took to the Childrens Infectious Diseases Hospital at first, and then to the Childrens Hospital #5 as she was suspected of having a biliary colic. After having taken antibiotics treatment she could eat little by little and was sent home.

However her muscle and joint pain didnt go away. As a doctor, Ekaterinas mom knew there should have been a reason to such state of weakness, thats why she turned to an orthopedic unit of the Regional Childrens Hospital. Everything was fine until the vomiting got back and Ekaterina couldnt eat again. The diagnosis was unclear.

Soon an assumption was made and it was proved true later: on October 8th Ekaterina was diagnosed with hybrid acute leukemia.

One could not spare a minute! The child needed donors blood and many people from Dneprospetsstal plant responded to the request. But on October 11th out of the blue an ischemic stroke happened. The doctors were shocked with the new diagnosis of Ekaterina as children rarely ever have this one. And her systolic blood pressure reading got unbelievably high - up to 260!

The girls mom doesnt give up. She works as a surgeon at the Burns unit of the Municipal Hospital of Urgent Medical Help and she saves people every day herself.

At the end of last March we told you that Ekaterina with her mom had gone for examination and treatment to Israel. The trip, alas, fell short of expectations.

The examination confirmed the diagnosis that meant a treatment of 30,000 US dollars. This sum of money turned out to be enormous for Ekaterinas family, so the girl with her mom had to come back to Zaporizhzhia.

As soon as Ekaterina arrived home, she was rushed to the intensive care unit of the Zaporizhzhia Childrens Regional hospital where shes been staying for some weeks.

I turn to all indifferent people and ask for help, says Natalya, Katyas mom. I know there are many kind and generous people. My daughter means everything to me, shes my life. Please, help us!

Dear friends! Dont stay aside, it is possible for us to help and give the girl a chance for a happy life. Weve done it for so many times, lets not leave this child in trouble!

If everyone donates at least 1 dollar for this good cause it will be enough to begin the treatment!
