Iam writing to you on behalf of my best friend, Yelena Rozhko who I've been friends with since we little girls even though I left Russia many years ago we took advantage of every opportunity to see each other as often as we could, she is a sister I never had! A few years ago Yelena lost her mother to cancer, it was a huge loss for her. Her mom was the only family she had. Yelena found strength and moved on with her life. She had a beautiful girl 2 years ago who became her whole life. Yelena worked very hard to provide for her daughter! She had great plans ahead of her, she dreamed of bright future for her little girl. But fate decided to play a cruel joke on her. A week ago Yelena was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma. The doctors in Moscow are not as helpful as we would hope, so she decided to take matter into her own hands and not let cancer win. She decided to fight this ugly disease. So she can see her daughter grow. After talking to a few doctors, they gave Yelena hope that she can be cured if she gets treatment in the US but she has to act fast. After contacting a few hospitals we learned that these kinda treatments are very expensive and they are way above her head. She needs to have money upfront before she even walks into the clinic. Yelena already started saving money by selling her personal belongings but unfortunately it is not enough and she is under time constraints. Please help Yelena as much as you possibly can. We are hoping that she will win this fight and be there for her daughter. We appreciate your thoughts, prayers and donation. Every penny counts! God bless you and your families!!!
