THE STORY:

Sam Sokolinsky wrote -

Miroslava Petrinina is from Kharkiv, a city in Ukraine. Until she was 1, she seemed to develop like other babies: she sat down and got her first teeth right on schedule. She was only delayed with walking. Months were going by, but Miroslava never tried to get up and walk. Massage did not help either. Eventually, Miroslava’s pediatrician referred her for MRI scan - and the results were shocking. Mira had numerous brain lesions and hydrocephaly. To add to the stress, doctors’ opinions varied. The one thing they agreed on was that the tumor was inoperable. Then Miroslava parents heard of Helios Clinic in Germany where other Ukrainian kids with brain tumors were treated successfully. They followed their lead and brought Miroslava for a consultation to Berlin in January 2010. At the clinic, Miroslava was diagnosed with medulloblastoma. The treatment was started immediately and Miroslava is gradually improving. She already finished four cycles of chemotherapy and is now completing radiation therapy. Still, Miroslava needs to undergo six more cycles of chemotherapy, which will cost close to 30,000 euros. Please help Miroslava complete her treatment!
