On top of that her older son, 14 y.o., was hospitalized back in fall 2016, right before her breast removal surgery, and diagnosed with some rear type of Hepatitis. He was hospitalized for a few month, went through tons of tests, some of results were absurdly abnormal: about 1,500 with norm up to 57! (again, I am far away from medical profession to name the exact tests and results, but numbers give a good idea about critical condition). And all of this going on together with mom's chemo and surgery. The boy was finally diagnosed with Autoimmune Hepatitis. and the only treatment suggested for him is immunoglobulin drops: 30 dozes x $173 = $5,190 for his full treatment. Again, completely unefordable for even healthy Ukrainians who are able to work full time, because as I mentioned above average salary in Ukraine is about $100-400 per month! And this family is in need of $34,940 just for medication, without even any other medical expenses. There is a desperate younger child, 9 y.o., desperate to have his mom alive and his brother healthy. There is a father (my cousin's husband) who works as much as possible to support the family but the numbers are unrealistically high, there is no way to be able to earn enough to pay for these medications in Ukraine. Therefore, on behalf of my Ukrainian family, who have always been hard working people and are too shy to ask for the help, I am begging all of you to help as much as each of you can. Together we can make it happen! Me, and all family were helping up to now as much we could (chemo, hospitals, surgery, special testings in Kiev, and other expencis) but now we came to the point when we can't do it alone. We were holding and trying as long as we could... Now need help! Please, please, please, begging on my knees, lets help these young people with as little as their needs for medication!
God bless you!
Please feel free to email to support my cousin. I will forward all emails to her (GoFundMe doesn't recommend to list emails here). She was trying to hold on and to be strong & positive for long time, but now I can feel her almost giving up, getting depressed and feeling so down.
Again, may God bless you for any support you can provide and for my cousin and her son!
Thank you very much!
