Parents' Letter (June 20, 2013)
My girl suffers from oligoarthritis with an eye-lesion — a complication developed as a result of severe sore throat. A year ago the Foundation has provided financial assistance to the girl. In the course of medical treatment a significant positive trend has been observed. However the illness has recrudesced and the medical specialists find it necessary to continue the intake of the drug "Actemra."
Thanks to the support of Chance Foundation received from September 2012 until May 21, 2013 my daughter passed the first stage of treatment. During this period of time she was injected with a drug "Actemra" every two weeks. Until recently we have noticed significant improvement in her condition — she became more active, less capricious, swelling of the legs has disappeared, she has stopped limping. Daughter bravely passed all injections, medical surveys, physicians visits.
However, with the spring coming she got a new recrudescence: reveal a noticeable limp, and again began to complain about pain in the legs.
Obviously the treatment does work, and it is registered by all the doctors, however it is very expensive.
I bring up child alone and my maternity-leave allowance
is insufficient to purchase such expensive medicine. Alone we cannot cope with this problem. We sincerely thank you for your previous help in acquiring drugs "Actemra".
As long as we live, our hope is alive! Our family once again asks for your help to provide financial assistance for further treatment to achieve Lera’s full recovery. We hope that you respond to our kind request.
Sincerely, Drobush Olga V., Lera’s mother.
Fundraising for Valerie starts.
