Think it's really great platform to connect and support each other's ideas.
Charity in its every kind is a great thing.
Among others efforts the issue of Ukrainian childhood cancer is important for me.
2 years ago, in 2008, I lost my best friend and boyfriend Yura. He had leukemia and was only 21. It was very hard, and it still hurts. During 6 months we (his friends and family) ,were fighting for his life: making charity local concerts, lots of donating days, found blood donors, were spreading the information through web and giving flyers just right on the city streets. He took some chemotherapy courses and had remission for a while. But really the only thing could help him was bone marrow transplantation. Unfortunately they don't do this operation in Ukraine. We even didn't have a bank of bone marrow - it's appeared recently and consists of a few samples. Then we couldn't get enough money for operation abroad. We gathered about $4 000, while the operation needed about $100 000.
But after that we'd really seen the picture of this problem - a lot, LOTS of children, since earliest age have leikosis/leukemia and other cancer diseases.
It's hard (or may be even impossible) to help everyone, but it matters to those whom we really can help.
We have plenty of volunteers' and charity funds, devoted to the children's cancer. Many of them are connected with Live Tomorrow community. Their english version of website is http://cancerkidsukraine.com.
You can connect either directly, or through the project.
Thanks to everyone who created this resource and supports it.
God bless you, guys.
