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

Alyona is a nice quiet girl, her dream is to wake up one day without any headache and enjoy day without an epileptic fit. Alyona has many plans for the future and she would love to make all her dreams come true, if only she weren’t so severely ill.

Alyona was first diagnosed with symptomatic epilepsy in 2005. The attacks were very often and lasted a long time. Later on severe headaches started and the attacks became more frequent. The girl had to undergo numerous tests and pay many visits to doctors. Her parents even contacted the alternative medical practitioners in an effort to identify the cause of constant headaches.

In 2007 Alyona was an in-patient at Hospital No. 5 of Zaporozhye, and she was referred for an MRT scan. The verdict was devastating – she was diagnosed with a brain tumour. A doctor informed them of a children’s neurosurgical centre, Romadanov’s Institute, in Kiev. In October 2007 Alyona was operated on but, alas, her condition did not improve and she is still experiencing the attacks. Tomography is currently showing the continued growth of post-haemorrhagic cyst in the right occipital lobe. The doctors are convinced that another operation would not give the long-awaited result and recommend chemo- or radio-therapy.

The latest brain scan has shown that Alyona’s tumour is back…She can feel it by headaches and seizures…The girl urgently needs 4,608 US dollars for life-saving surgery!

The family live in the city of Zaporozhye.
