=====================================

Mark is very intelligent, polite and self-confident. There is no wonder that everyone loves him at the Private Classic University in Zaporizhzhia. The life of this twenty-one-year old student did not really differ from the life of his peers: he fell in love, played in the city theatre, sometimes was disappointed but most important he always kept his chin up. One day, however, Mark’s life completely changed. Now his carefree daily routine is over and substituted by a hospital ward…

Mark during his chemotherapy

Everything started with a bad headache that was increasing day by day. He was also suffering from a constant pressure in the sinuses and a head cold. The young man felt concerned and decided to consult a doctor. He was diagnosed with a sinus disease and was prescribed a treatment course. The treatment turned out to be absolutely ineffective, though. Mark took some more tests which revealed this terrible diagnosis - acute lymphoid leukemia. The lad took this shocking news bravely, hugged his confused mom and whispered into her ear: “Everything will be just fine, Mom! We’ll overcome it, I’m sure of it!”…

“At first I felt desperate and helpless. I have never faced such serious diagnoses before and I just could not figure out where I could get such huge sums of money for my son’s treatment. The mothers of cancer sick children at the hematology department advised me to appeal to the “Happy Child” Charity Foundation. Many people feel ashamed to ask for money. There’s nothing shameful here, in my view, if your child is seriously sick. One should always trust God and hope for some support from kind people”, - says Mark’s mom Lyudmila.

Their friends have supported them as much as they could. Now Mark is hoping for some help from kind strangers who will read this article.

We’re asking you to support Mark and his mom Lyudmila! Help this vibrantly young man bring his life back, please!

On June 7th Mark is to start his 12th chemotherapy. This round requires approximately 125 US dollars! His single mother can’t easily find this sum due to her financial difficulties. Help Mark, please!

Mark is taking his treatment at the Regional Hospital in Zaporizhzhia.

"Dear Friends, Mark really needs your help!"

The family lives in Zaporizhzhia.
