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

“I am a mom of two children: the elder is three years old, the younger is only sixteen months. It happened so that my younger daughter is seriously ill; she is suffering from cancer. Chances for her recovery exist; there are many medications that can allow my little child to forget about existence of hospital wards, people in white gowns and pain – above all – but we do not have money for them, and this is a big problem for our family”, – Marina shares her concern with us.

Starting from Anna’s 16 weeks of age Marina started to notice the child’s severe cough. She went to the hospital at once. At first, during examinations, Anna was diagnosed with pneumonia, acute viral infection and bronchitis. The doctor in charge also insisted on the X-ray examination during which Anna’s heart problems were detected and the child got one more diagnosis: heart valvular defect. After this, the girl with her mother were sent to the Zaporozhye regional clinical hospital for examination. At the time no one was aware what the outcome of the examination would be…

In the ZRC Hospital Anna was given the final diagnosis: neuroblastoma of the posterior mediastinum. Urgently, she was appointed an operation on elimination of the tumor, because it was totally displaced to the right lung, lay heavy on the bronchial tubes resulting in severe cough accompanied by vomiting. Serious tachycardia was starting to develop and the tumor was impacting the heart.

After the operation, histologic anatomy was conducted and it showed that the tumor was malignant. Kiev Cancer Institute, in which Marina and Anna are given consultations, prescribed the girl 4 courses of chemotherapy; at present two of them are already completed.

“I am grateful to the Zaporozhye doctors. The hospital has a lot of medicines to fight this disease; but some of them, those which are expensive and hard to find are absent in the hospital and we have to obtain them ourselves. My financial position unfortunately is a complete disaster at present and I have no one else to turn to”.

Unfortunately, cancer is a group of diseases very difficult to fight against. Only at the complex availability of money, strength and belief one can achieve success and DEFEAT the disease. But this is only possible if all the three components are joined! Independently neither money no strength or belief will help. The Anedchenko family already has two of the components, please help them to obtain the third one – the finances.

The family lives in Zaporozhye.
