We express our gratitude to everyone who participated in saving the life of Masha. Transplants carried out safely. Next, we will certainly keep you informed of all developments.

Give me a place to stand and I will move the Earth that is the motto of 5-year-old Maria. The little girl is doing her best to achieve her goals. From her very childhood, she knew what she wanted and how she was going to get it. Going back home in the evening, she was excited telling her parents about the new things she learned at the nursery and at the pre-school training courses. She was dreaming about the time when she will be studying at the lyceum, taking part in various competitions, and, what is interesting, she even had her plans written down in her notebook. But her life made an unexpected turn, and instead of the lyceum the little girl found herself on a bed in the Hematology Department of Zaporozhzhye Regional Childrens Hospital. Here she is surrounded not by joyful boys and girls playing dolls and games, but with a spirit of stress, pain, concerns and uncertainty This is how it all started:

On January 27, Mashas parents noticed that her adenoids were enlarged. The family went to an otolaryngologist for counseling. The girl was prescribed treatment, which gave no results. After some serious examinations Masha was diagnosed with acute mononucleosis, with a new treatment course prescribed and follow-up of an oncologist. But still, there was no result. The girls adenoids were still enlarged. Such treatment went on till the beginning of March.

One of the blood counts made the situation clear: there were 57% of blasts in the peripheral blood. A healthy human should have no blasts in the samples at all. Masha was urgently taken to the in-patient hospital department, with the first chemo course prescribed. Sleepless nights were waiting for Mashas parents and family members.

Doctors expected that on the 15th day of therapy the girl will have a remission, but it didnt happen. It was decided to prescribe high-dose chemo. After the course is completed, it will be clear if the girl needs bone marrow transplantation, with the chances being 50/50.

During the two months spent at the hospital, the family spent about 20 thousand hryvnias (890 US dollars) for their second (younger) daughters treatment (they had to buy expensive medications). And only God knows what will happen now.

So far, the situation is dual: if the high-dose therapy proves effective, the bone marrow transplantation will not be necessary, if it doesnt we will need such transplantation urgently. Anyway, now we need to purchase expensive medications and get prepared for the worst-case scenario, thought believe and hope for the better, - told me Dmitry, Mashas father.

The girls parents, Dmitry and Natalia, live and work only for their children. They want to give them quality education and good future, but this challenge they are facing now is ruining all their plans. Now the main thing is to save their daughters life. The life of the child is the life of the parents.

Now the life is hard for everyone. But still we ask you, our dear donors, to help save little Masha. This wonderful girl should have a chance to live, just like all other children, and only we can give her such a chance.

The family lives in the city of Zaporozhzhye.

Telephone number of Dmitry, the girls father: +38 067 762 54 52.
