Milan's Cancer Treatment Fund

Milan is two and a half years old and was recently diagnosed with leukemia. He is my nephew's son who lives in Khmelnytskyi, Ukraine. At one time, the Ukraine had socialized healthcare, but now, since the war started in 2014, the government is no longer funding and the social welfare structures have disintegrated.  Now, in order to recieve life-giving treatment, each person needs to pay themselves.

Milan's parents are Yaroslav and Nadezda.  Yaroslav works in the trades and cannot find good work in the Ukraine because of the poor economy; however, instead of being able to go to another country he must now stay in the Ukraine for his son, Milan, to receive chemotherapy and related treatments.  Nadezda is a full time mother and caregiver for Milan and is primarily responsible for supporting all the medical processes that he must now go through.

Milan was diagnosed with leukemia at the end of August 2017 after his parents noticed that he had odd bruising on his body.  After blood tests and a biopsy of his spinal fluid, his cancer was confirmed.  At this time, he is receiving chemotherapy in his local hospital, however, starting in November, he must go to Kiev for a higher dosage of chemotherapy that cannot be accessed in his current clinic.  The per diem rate in Kiev is roughly $250/US + incidentals which Yaroslav and Nadezda do not have any hope of providing without additional help.

The funds raised here will be sent immediately to fund his chemotherapy and related treatment in Kiev starting in November.  His parents have no ability to fund it in any other way and without this money he will not have a good chance to survive - they have asked me to help and I will try.
