Nataliya Shirina GoFund Me page

My name is Marina Gafanovich. I am trying to help My close friend Nataliya Shirina. Nataliya was born in Kharkov Ukraine with polycystic kidney disease. Due to suboptimal healthcare in Ukraine Nataliya’s health condition was slowly deteriorating. She is a very upbeat and optimistic person and hopes to live a long life. She graduated Krakov University and works as a architect. She is an artists and her drawings won multiple competitions locally.
Unfortunately, Nataliya’s kidney function started to decline rapidly. She was told that her only solution is kidney transplant. Nataliya’s mother wants to be a donor. However, the family can’t afford the actual procedure of transplantation.
At the moment Nataliya is hospitalized. I am asking for warm thoughts and prayers. If possible, any contribution is greatly appreciated.
For Russian speakers, I am attaching a site in Russian created by Nataliya’s Ukrainian friends.
