Unfortunately, after 26 weeks of therapy Angelica’s condition has worsened, and doctors decided to stop treatment. The remaining nine vials Angelica’s parents kindly gave to our new child in ward Diana Zaviruha.
Parents’ Letter (April 19, 2012)
Dear Chance Foundation,
My name is Alla Romanets. When our doctor told me about the Chance Foundation, I hurried to address my request to you. And of course I would like to thank you for that glimmer of hope you give people. Thank you so much!
I would like to tell you a little bit about our misfortune and ask you for help.
My daughter Angelica is seriously ill: at the age of nine months she was diagnosed with hepatitis C. Since then she has had health problems. The girl had to be hospitalized quite often — sometimes in our native town and sometimes to the regional hospital. The disease frequently manifested itself: the girl vomited, she had stomachache and diarrhea. She had to take hepaprotectors both IV and orally and various other drugs to support her health. She has almost no immunity and is affected by various infections. But regardless all the hardships, with God’s help we tried to hang on. We have been fighting for the child’s life for a year already — but the values in blood test are several times higher than the admissible norm. And they do not get lower. That’s why we have to start the treatment immediately, we must not procrastinate. Angelica is a very gentle, kind and affectionate child. She is in the 2nd grade. Her teacher praises her, she always says that the Angelica is very intelligent and advanced. But my daughter often misses school and has to have extra classes in order not to fall behind. Anyway, she attends a music school, learns to play the piano. She has also been going to an Orthodox Church Sunday school since she was 4. Angelica participates in all sorts of events, sings, recites poems, and performs in sketches. She is in for painting and dancing. She adores animals, especially cats. We gave her a kitten Murka — there was no end to her joy. She also likes making crafts, it inspires her. I can see that our girl takes interest in many things. She dreams of becoming a doctor. Now you can see what a wonderful, smart, lovely girl we have.
She is very special! It’s true! We love her so much!
I have told you a little bit about our girl and our misfortune. I hope you will hear our call for help and answer our request. The treatment is very expensive. We have no such money. But there’s no way the treatment can be delayed for Angelica’s state is getting worse and worse.
Please help us! We entreat you!
