The doctors gave the girl three weeks to recover from an apoplectic stroke. And her mother’s task for the given period is not an easy one: she has to find money for Katya’s further treatment

The treatment bill in a Belarusian clinic

Little Katya needs urgent help again! A medical examination was conducted in a Belarusian clinic but it was impossible to diagnose her exactly because the child had taken the medicine called “Prednisolone”. This medicine had changed the state of white blood cells, that’s why the type of leukemia couldn’t be defined. The doctors decided to send her home. The effect of “Prednisolone” will be nullified in 3 weeks. Then the doctors of the Belarusian clinic will be able to give a diagnosis and start the treatment. These 3 weeks Katya spends within the loving family circle were also given to her in order to recover from an apoplectic stroke. And her mother’s task for the given period is also very difficult: she has to find money for Katya’s further treatment…

More than 10,000 dollars were spent on the first transfer and the medical examination. 6,347 dollars were spent on the medical examination; a great sum of money was spent to transport the girl to Belarus and back home etc. Thus it’s not surprising that they are completely hard up. Only your pecuniary aid can help little Katya to withstand these difficulties.

How much money does Katya need for the next phase? The sum required for the next medical examination fluctuates between 5,000 and 8,000 dollars. When the illness will be diagnosed another great sum will be required, but this time the sum will be unbelievably enormous. The minimal amount of money needed for Katya’s treatment will make up 50,000 dollars.
