THE STORY:

Age: 8 Years 

Diagnose: Cancer

Country: Russia


In winter 2013, Sasha's condition deteriorated, she started to suffer from headaches, vomiting, and stopped managing her right hand normally. On February 18, 2014, MRI showed a large tumor in her frontoparietal lobe. The disease developed very rapidly, and the girl weakened a lot.
As soon as in March, Sasha was successfully operated at the Burdenko Institute of Neurosurgery (Moscow) with the quota of the Ministry of Healthcare. Based on a biopsy of the tumor tissue, its malignancy was determined: it was anaplastic ependymoma.
The oncologist prescribed radiation and chemotherapy, which took place in Samara, in May and June. Repeated surveys were held in June and July (Samara – MRT, St. Petersburg – PET, Moscow – repeated consultation by oncologist).
The repeated consultations at the Department of Neurorehabilitation were appointed to July 2015. Every 3 months the oncologist will give advices, and the treatment plan may vary according to the results of another MRI.
Sasha is now being home-schooled. The girl adores drawing.
In order to provide her the necessary care (multiple meals, physical therapy sessions, studying at home, developmental activities, repeated checkups and consultations, etc.), her mother was forced to leave the job for a year.
Alexandra’s family is in a difficult position, as Sasha has her twin sister, so her mother raises two daughters, when being single.
