ATTENTION! 17.05.2016.: Fundraising closed.
Hooray! Thanks to your kind assistance Daria has successfully completed her treatment! We honestly hope that Daria will enjoy a long and healthy life!
Here goes the Dasha’s own plea:
Until recently, it seemed to me that I was just starting to live, and all my dreams are about to start coming true! However, the life has some more crush-tests for me. The autumn of 2014 has brought me the diagnosis of rectal cancer.
After the 32 days of the radiation therapy there was a difficult operation proposed to me, which notwithstanding all the risks, could become my only chance to live. Since as a result of my inborn physical musculoskeletal system’s pathology the operation could result in all kinds of complicationsI’ve decided to undergo another more detailed examination in one of the Kiev’s medical clinics.
It is quite surprising how life can change in a glance… This May, when it became obvious that my tumor has gone, I was the happiest girl on the Earth! All my previous trials – radiation therapy, innumerable examinations seemed to sink into oblivion… This summer I went to the seashore and even fulfilled my dream - I have swum for the first time in my life! I’ve returned to my favorite job, had some meetings with my friends, started dreaming of overland journeys again…
However, my joy of life out of the hospital walls turned to be short-dated. My check-up colonoscopy revealed some new formations, which unfortunately turned to be cancerous… Medics were shocked by the speed of growth of these tumors thus the council of physicians has decided to turn to the emergency surgery. The eighth of September became the beginning of my new life with ileostomy (small intestine drawn into the abdominal cavity). During the operation, 14 cm of my intestines were cut off along with the tumors. I have the perspective of operational reconstruction and closure of my stomach, but check-up biopsy has shown that the removed tumor is so aggressive that there is high risk of the new relapse.
With the expenses tied to the chemotherapy, there, sadly, will be others: because of the disability of mine, I simply cannot use the public transport, so the taxi is my only way to move around. In addition, there are always the medicine expenses, which I can’t afford.
I understand perfectly that the current instability of the situation in Ukraine adversely affects anyone’s ability to help financially, but even the most trivial donation can eventually hasten my recovery!
The spring reins at it’s fullest and I hope so much that I will not only see the blooming of trees in our garden, but also restore the tree of my own life free of cancer…
In the end of October, I am going to start a half-year chemotherapy course according to the FOLKS4+AVASTIN protocol (12 cycles, 1ce per 2 week). Preliminary calculations show that one cycle of the chemotherapy will cost me 28 871 hrn, excluding additional medicines that I could require if any severe side effects are to happen, daily hospital expenses, apartment rental and travel expenses (the therapy takes place in Kiev). Now I also have to spend coin on incontinence bags and their elements (creams and plates). All this makes me sad and means that I have a need of Your prayers and financial support, lacking these I cannot win this harsh battle for my own tomorrow. I’ve calculated that if I had to take all the money from mine and my mother’s pensions it would take 30 years to achieve my grand goal… My father’s modest income as a whole goes into food and maintenance services, so my only hope to fight on is your help – my good and kind-hearted people!
We the Fund Officers ask all our Friends to answer this plea. Please take our sincere gratitude for Your support in these difficult times!
