Disaster Struck on the 11th Hour!

Disaster Struck on the 11th Hour!

Let me appeal to your sense of kindness, altruism, generosity!

I need $5000 for a stem cell procedure to heal my fractured right arm shoulder.

Let me explain. I was born in Ukraine, and after the demise of USSR the life over there was pretty poor. I was doomed to a life with no future. But I fought, and fought, and long story short I got myself educated with 2 Masters Degrees. I worked in a variety of jobs. I mastered 5 languages and I immigrated to Canada. Getting an MBA from a Western University was my dream since my early 20ies. I had to save and borrow in order to realize that dream of mine. I got accepted into MBA program in San Francisco.

Half way through 1 year intense program, with only a few months away from graduation, I had a traffic accident that ruined my right arm shoulder bones and fractured them into 4 pieces. The surgery failed. It took me away from my studies, and it took away my energy. I had many nights when I had to cry myself to sleep and many mornings when I could only get out of bed thanks to sheer willpower and sense of hope. I was afraid that everything I worked for all my life would go in vain.
But I am a fighter and I fought hard, and even without the use of my right arm, even with all the pain and lack of sleep, even with all the hospital and physio therapy visits, I am about to graduate and I CAN still make it.

There is an adult stem cell procedure that gives me a chance to restore bones in right shoulder and heal them. Stem cell procedures are not covered by health insurance in US, and Canadian health care system doesn't offer any.
My parents passed away long time ago. All my relatives are in Ukraine and barely make enough to support themselves.

A SMALL contribution can make a BIG difference.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
