The collection is over. Thank you!

Age: 7 y.o.
Residence:Belarus
Diagnosis:stadium 4 retroperitoneal neuroblastoma, relapse
Needs: immunotherapy in Spain
Funds to raise: EUR 200,000

Kira was diagnosed in 2016, in the age of 3. This was followed by a severe, aggressive treatment: Kira underwent 6 blocks of chemotherapy, an operation to remove a tumor, and bone marrow transplantation, that had heavy consequences.
Owing to the help of caring people, they have managed to go timely to Greifswald clinics, Germany, for a treatment with antibodies (immunotherapy).
But there was a relapse in April of this year.
Now Kira needs to undergo transplantation, immunotherapy and other important treatments. Kira gave a good response to the treatment she has already received, and she has every chance for a full recovery. A clinic in Barcelona is ready to accept the girl. The cost of treatment is EUR 307,000. The family has managed to collect € 113,000 on their own. Kira, like any child, has her own wishes. She wishes simple things: to go to school with other children and celebrate her birthday at home with family and friends.
For the wishes to become true, she urgently needs to start the treatment. And for this they urgently need about 200,000 euros.

Almost all parents of our care-receives are heroic people! They withstand the trials that a normal person in peacetime can hardly imagine. To survive, they need our support.
But there are also the parents who, despite being immersed in their difficult situation, can think of others and make better the world around.

Age: 9 y.o.
Residence:Kharkiv region, Ukraine
Diagnosis: spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and grade 4 neuromuscular scoliosis
Needs: surgery in Germany
Funds to raise: EUR 50,500

The SMA has weakened the muscles throughout her body, she cannot walk or even stand on her own. From the age of 3, her back began to deform. All day long Polina has to wear a tight corset to support her spine. However, the disease is progressing and now the girl has severe scoliosis with a lateral arch of more than 90 degrees. This causes serious breathing problems, impaired blood circulation, heart displacements. Polina requires an urgent surgery to correct the scoliosis. Taking into account the severity of the underlying disease, the doctors have recommended installing a magnetic structure MAGEC System in Germany. This design can be adjusted without surgery as the child grows, by expanding the structure using a special magnetic device. The procedure has to beperformed 2-3 times per year in a clinic.
The sooner the operation is done, the more chances are there to save Polina. Such surgeries are not performed in Ukraine. The German clinic in the city of Bochum is ready to accept the girl. The price tag is EUR 70,500. At the moment, it remains to collect EUR 50,500.
