Dear donors! The amount needed for the treatment is raised! Thank you for your help and support! Little Polina has been treated for acute lymphoblastic leukemia for five months. Treatment was going according to the medical protocol the girl has developed a severe allergic reaction to one of the main drugs in the treatment, therefore it requires to be replaced to the drug "Ervinaza ". Otherwise, the chances of further healthy life without disease recurrence are significantly reduced. The cost of the drug is high and it is urgently needed. Together we can help the little girl to go through the right treatment and defeat the disease.

Special case

Polina does not want to consider herself special, she is still like other children: goes to school, plays with her friends, has hobbies. At first Polina’s disease looked like an ordinary cold: high temperature, sore throat, weakness. Doctors in a local hospital thought it was a bronchitis, but weeks went by and the girl did not get any better.

Polina’s mom was worrying, she felt like something was wrong. She insisted on a consultation in the Centre of Pediatric Oncology, Hematology and Immunology. Medical tests immediately identified that Polina had an acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia is the most common cancer among children before six years. The disease is rapid and dangerous: without treatment it can kill you after several months.

Little Polina has been treated for acute lymphoblastic leukemia for five months. Treatment was going according to the medical protocol, but the girl has developed a severe allergic reaction to one of the main drugs in the treatment, therefore it requires to be replaced to the drug "Ervinaza ". Otherwise, the chances of further healthy life without disease recurrence are significantly reduced. The cost of the drug is high and it is urgently needed.

The 16 weeks of the needed therapy will cost 25 thousand euros. The Aleksievichs live in a small town in the Minsk region, Polina’s mother works in a local cafe, Polina’s father is on the paternity leave to take care of his disabled child: the girl can’t be left alone for a long time. Although Polina is not from a large family and she has both parents, an average Belarusian family doesn’t have such a big amount of money.

Polina dreams to recover one day, she doesn’t let herself and her parents to worry. She is a very active child and always spends time reading, drawing and learning. Polina’s hobby is to draw, she wants to become a designer one day. The girl has to go a long difficult way to recover, luckily, she has a loving family ready to support her, but now Polina also needs the support of people who are not indifferent to her story to purchase so urgently needed "Ervinaza ".

Leukemia treatment should be carried out on schedule. The next doze of "Ervinaza" must be injected on March 20. There is very little time for the purchase of the drug.

The price of the medicine is high, but the girl's life should not depend on whether or not her parents have the opportunity to buy the expensive medicine!
