Please help Inga get cancer treatment


Hello everyone,

I am so thankful for you to read my story. my name is Inga and I would like to tell you my story.

I am so sorry to ask for your help at such a difficult time in the world, but I, and my family, desperately need your help. I am fighting Cancer, but a cancer that is curable -

this is such a difficult time for me – and all my family ; I cannot do this battle alone. Therefore I am asking for your help.

I live in the Ukraine; I love my country and my heritage, however we do not have the unending supply and support of healthcare, without financial backup – and I have no alternative but to ask for the help of the wider world.

Please can I tell you my story? –

I am 40 years young; I am a married to a fantastic and supportive man called Matt, and I am the mother of three wonderful, inspirational children aged 14, 4 ½ and 1 ½ years old.
... Until the end of December 2019, our lives were good (hardworking and basic), but we had everything we could wish for and all was ok in our world. Then life changed for us, I became ill, and I needed to go to hospital as an emergency – at this time, it was found that I had Cancer.

Our wonderful healthcare professionals operated on me and removed what they could, however to ensure my recovery, they said that I needed chemotherapy to ensure the Cancer would be gone forever.

As you can imagine, this turned my whole life, my world, the lives of my loved ones, my friends – upside down!

My wonderful family and friends supported us as best they could, and helped me financially to have the treatment I needed. But I need to talk about my emotions - Cancer exposes all aspects of life, all values, you begin to understand that there is a lot of good in the world, that you have not appreciated this before.

Cancer teaches you to be angry, but to believe, ask, forgive, endure, think and take care of yourself and others.

In the Ukraine, there is no insurance for the „average“ man - that supports the medicine and treatment needed to fight conditions such as Cancer. The entire financial burden of on-going treatment lies with the patient and their family.

There is no way to explain this, but it is very expensive. Matt and I used all of our resources, our savings –We exhausted every support that we could, but I am so sad that this is not enough.

Matt works SO hard, he has tried everything! but we do not have the power or time to work as much as we need to do, to meet the costs of my treatment. Hense my sincere appeal to you all.......

We need to ask for your help, help from others - as we cannot continue without the professional help we need to support me to fight the cancer. I continue to fight, and will fight for as long as it needs. I pray for a positive outcome for my myself ; but mostly for my family, I am emotional to say that I really want to live; I want to see my daughter instil graduate from school, date her love, marry the love of her life, I want to see my sons grow into clones „a mirror“ of their father, develop the values, dignity and respect for family, people and family, hard work etc that he has instilled upon them. And to respect the tradition of the Ukraine and the World.

As my resolve and strength reduces, we may need to ask for help to keep our Household going (its not fair to ask a 14 yr old to change the clothing/continence pads of her mother) I ask you to help me in the fight against my cancer and to pray for my health. I really want to live, I want to see how my children grow, develop and excel as human beings, as adults – for as long as I possibly can. My dream is to be able to care for my grandchildren ..... I am sorry to ask, but please help me achieve this.

I swear upon my life – upon that of my husband and that of my children – this plea is made in an honest and heartfelt way – every single penny that you give will go towards my treatment, and every single penny that I no longer need will go to help and support of other people in need – just like me.

Thank you so much for your help – however big or small.. I thank you. My husband thanks you and my children thanks you!
