No one fights alone! Savva is a spunky and smart 5 year old boy. He loves to watch cartoons and play with his legos. Above all, he loves all things chocolate. Until recently, Savva's spirit for life was neverending. He was constantly running around and making everyone laugh. But now, he is confined to a hospital bed. Savva was recently diagnosed with Burkitt leukemia. Since then, he has endured kidney failure (and is now on dialysis), as well as liver and other major organ dysfunctions. Savva will require chemotherapy, radiation, and possibly a transplant. This is a very rare and exteremly aggressive form of cancer, so we must act fast. Savva lives in Ukraine with his mother, but since his diagnosis, they have been fortunate enough to recieve specialized care in the Dana Childrens Hospital in Israel. The medical treatments Savva is receiving are not free and his mother?#39;s living expenses are not covered. Thus, the money we raise will enable Savva to fight this terrible disease with his mother by his side. Savva's mother?#160;is not able to work during this time, and hence, does not have any income. She is by his side, always. Without your help, none of this will be possible. Savva is an amazing kid who never fails to bring a smile to your face. Please help us help Savva. Any donation is appreciated and will help us reach our goal. Thank you in advance.
