Igor Vovkovinskiy Chronic Health Problem

Igor Vovkovinskiy is a Ukrainian man that moved to America and suffers from
pituitary gigantism, which occurs when a tumor presses down on the pituitary gland. Because it's in too difficult of a spot to operate on, the tumor cannot be removed completely, and it means he'll never stop growing. As he's stated before, this causes him chronic, unimaginable growing pains for about "99% of the day". On top of the exhaustion he feels, he has severe insomnia and can almost never get 4 to 5 hours of sleep. Igor has mentioned the selling of some of his personal items like his camera just to stay afloat but still won't ask for money. He is one of the most humble, genuine people in existence and it causes me incredible sadness that he suffers from this. 100% of donations will go to him with proof via video or screenshot, whichever you prefer. This page is to contribute to his cost of living which is immensely high considering everything is custom-tailored to his size. He is 7 feet 8 inches and virtually nothing is convenient for him. If you could donate routinely that would be these best, big donations are also welcome as there are probably procedures that could help him but they are 10's of thousands of dollars. He is not aware of this GoFundMe but will be as soon as donations start coming in. I'm not sure how much time he has left in this current state, please consider donating.
