The report on the arrived donations

My son Sergey is 7 years old. He started kindergarten in 2016 as a happy, healthy boy, excited to learn and looking forward to first grade. In April 2017, he started to complain about pain in his neck. The pain worsened, but we hoped for the best.

In June 2017, he received an MRI and CT scans at Zaporozhye Regional Hospital. The doctors diagnosed him with a malignant tumor in the canal of the cervical spine in July. We were devastated. Sergey began chemotherapy treatment and the tumor decreased considerably. The metastasized cancer decreased 80%. Although Sergey felt better, the doctors warned us that the cancer will return without continued treatment.

Sergey has undergone four chemotherapy treatments which exhausted our family savings. Sergey has a 1-year-old sister. Their father works at ZaporozhOblEnergo (Zaporozhye energy production company) earning only 3500 UAH ($135 USD) per month. I am on maternity leave with my infant daughter and tend to my son at the hospital. Sergey’s continuing chemotherapy treatments and care cost 17,000 UAH ($654 USD) per month. We are unable to afford this.

We are desperate to save Sergey’s life. As a mother, I beg you to donate what you can to help us pay for Sergey’s treatment. All I want is to give Sergey the chance to be a child, to go to school, and to enjoy every day!

The family lives in village Veseloe, Zaporozhye region.
