Old request text:


I am asking you to help us in our struggle for the life of my only long-awaited son little Yaroslav. He was sent to us as God's blessings after 10 years of infertility prognosis. Up to the age of 3 years the kid was absolutely healthy, then he started to go to the kindergarten and picked up a sore throat. Then he started to complainof thelegs pains and the arthritis diagnosis was stated, that wasthe complication after the tonsillitis. But, the condition of the baby was worsening, and eventually, in 2015, when the hemoglobin fell down to 57, we were sent to the Hematology Department at Children`s Regional Hospital. There a horrible diagnosis was made to us,that was the 4th stage of neuroblastomain the left part of the retroperitoneal space.

During one year and a half we were fighting with cancer and we won it. Rather we thought that we won. Yarichek hadundergone 6 courses of therapy, 2 surgeries, rays, high-dose chemotherapy with autologous bone marrow transplantation.

With good results we were sent back home, we had to receive biotherapy and supervision, CT scan showed that there were no cancer cells left in the body. From July to December 2016 Yasikwas enjoying childhood!

In the first days the next year Yaroslav got bad, he got fever, the abdomen and legs pained. On the 5th of January 2017 we did scanning, it showed that the lymph nodes were enlarged and there was a lump in the sternum, there we`ve heard this terrible word, “THE RELAPSE”.

We returned to the hospital again to undergo a stronger chemotherapy course. But, in our case, Ukrainian doctors cannot do much, the only thing that they can offer is “5 courses of chemistry and pray that it could help."

We therefore decided to seek help abroad where more modern methods of treatment are used, although not everywhere they take the relapse cases. Indian Memorial Research Institute FORTIS accepted to see, they said us a preliminary cost of 98 000 USD. One year and a half of treatment sucked all funds from us,from our relatives and acquaintances, and now we appeal to you to help us to collect at least part of the required amount. We beg you to help to save our baby!

The family live in Prymorsk town of Zaporizhia region.
