BENEFITING: ADVITA FUND USA
Natasha Kudryavtseva was 10 when she first got sick with acute promyelocytic leukemia. Her treatment was not completed, and a year later her father died. In one more year, her mother lost her parental rights, and Natasha ended up in an orphanage. In 2007, Natasha had a relapse of her disease. Fortunately, while at the hospital Natasha met her future adoptive mother who took care of her and together they won over Natasha’s disease. However, recent tests discovered a genetic mutation which will inevitably lead to a relapse, so Natasha needs to start treatment urgently. The medication that can save Natasha is called Trisenox and is not registered in Russia. She needs to travel to Germany where such treatment is possible, but will cost 113,000 euros.
Natasha currently has her own site where she posts doctor's documents, receipts, and updates on her health. http://pomnatasheeng.ucoz.ru/
Please help Natasha get her health back!
