I'm not a person who gives up. I fight cancer every day and I will continue to fight it! But two months ago, cancer gave me a strong blow - I fell into a coma. Thanks to a miracle and the support of loved ones, I survived to keep fighting another day. But cancer didn't give up on me either, and my hardships continued. Now I can't breathe without a special ventilator. A few days ago my doctor said that all available treatments have been exhausted. At the moment I'm staying at the Memorial Sloan Kettering hospital in New York, but my days here are limited.
Some decisions are hard to make... but what I want most right now is to return to my homeland. For each of us, home is hidden in a different place: someone has it in their closet or in a bag with many things, in houses or in cars. For me it's the city where I was born and the country where I grew up - Ukraine! Somewhere there, under cobblestone streets of Kyiv, my heart is hidden, but one cannot live without a heart for long. I miss my heart and I want to go back home. I'm not going to surrender, and will continue fighting. But in the worst case, I want to be in Ukraine. In my current condition, the only affordable transport is a specialized medical plane that can transport me with the ventilator that helps me breathe. The cost of the flight is $100,000 USD. And it is here that I appeal to you. Please help me get back home and continue my treatment there.
Thanks for reading.
