Little Bogdan, a bright 4 years old, has already suffered tremendously during his young life. On 28 March 2006 he lost a kidney. Thereafter he was subject to an excruciating course of radiotherapy and is now in the middle of his second chemotherapy session.

Some of the medication for chemo Bogdan receives for free. However, supplementary medication such as Carboplatium and Ceftriaxone his parents are required to purchase themselves.

To take the supplementary medication is as important as to receive the chemo itself.

Taking into account that on average Ukrainians receive about $200 dollars per month, to spend $ 150 for 3 days worth medication puts a family in an impossible situation.

Everyday, parents spend around $50 on medication alone. So far Bogdan's parents were able to borrow the money from friends, but there is a limit as for how long it will be possible to do so. Moreover, the financial demands are likely to increase further as the treatment progresses.

Please help the family to brake this vicious cycle. With your help, Bogdan has a good chance of recovery.

Any financial help as well as a donation of above-mentioned medications would be greatly appreciated

Thank you in advance!
