Lisa has been once again visited Germany. New lesions there and it pleases.

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

Elizaveta is one of the best dancers in the dancing group "Stozhary". She is her mother's helper, a good student, an active and sweet girl, and an Energizer bunny. At least that's how she was six months ago, before her illness changed her life. Now Elizaveta is in the hospital, in the hematology unit.

Just like all the children, Elizaveta has had her share of colds and allergies, but nothing more serious than that. In January of 2013, she suddenly started having pain in her right calf, around the tibia, the pain was getting worse and then the leg started swelling. Her concerned parents took her to the Zaporozhye Regional Children's Hospital (ZRCH). At first, the tests didn't show anything, and only after the 3rd X-ray, the doctors said it was possibly Ewing's sarcoma. The doctors referred Elizaveta to the Cancer Institute in Kiev, where she and her parents spent nearly two months undergoing tests. The bone biopsy showed that there was no Ewing's sarcoma. However, that was not the end of Elizaveta’s journey to finding out the correct diagnosis...

Elizaveta before her illness...

Elizaveta was then referred to the Women's and Children's Hospital (WCH) in Kiev, where she had an open biopsy and surgery on her right tibia. The tumor was removed and diagnosed as the eosinophilic granuloma of bone. The family spent an entire month in the hospital... Elizaveta's leg was encased in the plaster cast, the treatment was expensive; there were endless tears and nerve-wracking worry, and most of all, the unrelenting question, "WHAT NEXT?" Because the amount of money they had was getting smaller and smaller, and their needs were getting bigger and bigger. After Elizaveta was discharged from WCH, her parents were completely out of money and thus had to return with Elizaveta to their native town of Zaporozhye.

Elizaveta's treatment continued at ZRCH. Tests, submitting samples for labwork, CT and MRI took several more months.

The tests revealed two more tumors, one in the spine and one in the lungs. Elizaveta started getting chemotherapy and has had 4 cycles so far.

Needed medications:

Vinblastine

Prednisolone

Osetron

Zofran

De-nol

Little and smiling Liza needs our financial support now so much. She is currently preparing for her checkup trip to Germany. Help her, please!

The family lives in the city of Orekhov.
