Help young Ukrainian with leukemia

$30,327 of $200,000 goal

Raised by 342 people in 3 months
I met Yarema (23) as part of one incredible smart and passionate team of developers, who never said 'no' or 'that's impossible. I had the pleasure to work with him for almost 3 years and I got to know him while visiting the team in Ukraine as well as his wife, Ievgeniia. They were and are madly in love, just got married and I have never seen such caring people, for each other as well as for all others around them.
...and most importantly as one of my team member, he always had my back.
Now it is time for me to have his!!!

I would like to share a letter, his wife (he calls her 'Wonder Women', which she truly is trying to do anything possible to save his life) send me, after I asked them how I can help.

Hello,
We are Ievgeniia and Yarema, a young family who got married two years ago. We had a lot of plans and dreams and one of the biggest was to become parents this year. But life had other plans: two months ago, in April 2018, Yarema was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

We live in Ukraine (Lviv city) and at present Yarema has a course of chemotherapy that gives good results. However, full recovery for Yarema is not possible without bone marrow transplant. Such operation cannot be done in Ukraine. We are hoping to have it in Polish clinic Maria Skłodowska-Curie Institute of Oncology in Gliwice town. The clinic has good statistics with such operations and also names lower prices comparing to other clinics in different countries. The transplant together with preparation and rehabilitation costs $200,000. This is the unaffordable sum of money for us and only your help can give us hope of recovery and returning to the normal life.

I am writing this letter, because Yarema is incredibly important to me and I’m doing everything possible to save his life. I’m asking everyone who reads this to help me save my husband.

Ievgeniia, Yarema’s wife

I guess no more words needed. Yarema needs all the help he can get to fight this horrible diagnosis, but all his and Ievgeniia's strength will not go anywhere if we are not able to raise the $200,000 as soon as possible.

EVER $ counts....no amount is too little to too big!

Thank you so much in advance
....and I would like to add a German saying I truly believe in and I teach my two little girls every day:
Just as you scream into the forest it echoes back.

Message from Ievgeniia (Yarema's wife): Recently me and Yarema returned from Gliwice town in Poland where he had consultation with doctors in Maria Sklodowska-Curie Institute – Oncology Centre. Doctors once more confirmed that the bone marrow transplant is necessary, that they know what to do with patients like he and that his chances are high. This is a great news. However, the Polish clinic is the public one and there is a queue for transplantation with the priority of Polish citizens. So there is still a lot of communication with the administration of clinics ahead to understand when we can have the operation and what the final cost of it will be. Meanwhile, to have the back-up plan we are communicating with clinics in other countries, e.g. in Turkey, but the prices for treatment they name are higher. Currently Yarema is finishing chemotherapy course in Lviv and there is still another chemo course to come before the transplantation. This is a very aggressive chemotherapy that kills immune system and such course cannot be done in Lviv. We are hoping to have it in Poland (or other place where the transplantation will be done) because after this course it will probably be difficult to transport Yarema. Financial updates (06/15/2018): Collected in Ukraine (PrivatBank): UAH 1 205 278 ($45 828) Collected on GoFundMe: $18 467 Total: $64 295 Thank you for everything you do for Yarema! You make us believe in miracles!
