September 22, 2008, 11:00 3482 Author: Irina Gavrisheva, translated by Inna Grigorjeva www.deti.zp.ua Ukrainian doctors were impressed by positive results of treatment got in Moscow and even began to think about preparing Veronica for the next surgery … but 17.09.2008 her heart stopped…another bright child passed away..

We will remember you forever

Russian doctors examined Veronica’s analysis and MR images and decided she had a chance. They didn’t give any guarantee but just began to treat Veronica. Veronica spent a month in Moscow Scientific Centre of Radiology where she received combined course of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, she passed it successfully, her temperature became normal, she even began to smile and talk. After treating in Moscow Veronica's state became stabilized and Russian radiologists discharged her to surgery department for tumor extracting. She needed the operation as soon as possible the tumor not to be growth again.

There was no possibility to operate in Moscow so Veronica and her mother came back to Ukraine, Kiev with hope that Ukrainian doctors could do the operation in time. Ukrainian doctors were impressed by positive results of treatment got in Moscow and they even began to prepare Veronica for the operation in Kiev Institute of Neurosurgery. But girl's kidneys, lungs and heart became swollen and broke down under the influence of strong medicines, some organs couldn't carry out their functions, kidneys stopped to remove liquid… and Veronica’s heart stopped beating.

She struggled till the end..

Let's pray for Veronica’s soul and for her mother Anna!
