Ylyana Samsonova - multiple sclerosis
Organized by: Nadya Evdokimova
This fundraiser is set up to raise money for my friend Ylyana Samsonova. Ylya is suffering from multiple sclerosis. She was treated by a number of doctors in Krasnoyarsk, Russia, however her condition has become progressively worse in the last few years. Her friend found a new opportunity for Ylyana's treatment in Israel. The group of friends were able to raise 9K in 2 months and we are hoping to raise another 9K for the first round of treatment for Ylyana in Israel. The required 18k, for the first trip include transportation from Russia to Israel, the diagnostics and treatment. I really hope to find people who can help my friend. It's extremely sad to watch ones a competitive figure skater to become imprisoned in the weakened body. At this point it is hard for her to even turn a book page. She is now under a full 24/7 supervision and assistance of her mom Irina Samsonova.
