In the absence of information about the child.


From the very first days of his life, Dmytro’s mother worried for his every breath and scratch. She lived only for him. Back then, 13 years ago, Dima was given a disability status and diagnosed with epilepsy. Quiet and joyful life turned into a battle for the health of her only son. "Around the clock" medication, rehabilitation and exercises with her baby-boy became the usual rhythm of life for Anna.

Most unfortunately, bad luck comes in threes! On 16th of March Dmytro went out for a walk with his dog and accidentally fell down. By evening, his leg swelled up and ached badly. Anna sounded the alarm and took her son to the hospital for medical examinations. He was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcom (Osteosarcoma) after computer tomography scan.

Treatment costs about 160-400 thousand USD. Single mother is unable to cope on her own with two serious diseases of her son. We turn to you for help. It is only in our hands to save the child's life and help him to defeat this dreadful disease.

Please, do not remain aloof! Every penny, every hryvnia is very important!

The family lives in the village of Basan, Zaporozhe region.
