Born on: 04/07/2006.

Disease: Osteosarcoma in the lower third of the left thigh.

In order to get necessary treatment, Jenya was moved to Kiev to his grandmother, who is presently looking after him. At present, his parents are in Donetsk and cannot cover Jenya’s treatment.

Jenya fell ill in the middle of March 2012 with the pain in the leg just above the knee. After analyzing the medical image at the local hospital, he was sent to the regional traumatology for consultation in Donetsk city. From there, he was moved to the children’s clinic in the regional hospital. After many evaluations, Jenya was transferred to National Cancer Institute in Kiev. The first 2 chemotherapies were completed in Kiev and the third one was done in Donetsk city.

Presently, his grandmother (Ludmila Aleksandrovna Ilina) is staying with Jenya in National Cancer Institute where he recently completed his fourth chemotherapy. Grandmother’s pension is only 870 UAH ($104), which is insufficient to pay for the medications and treatment. His father is a mineworker who recently got laid off, which has put additional financial pressure on the family.

The family was able to get a short airtime on local radio broadcast where they asked for help. They are thankful for all those who donated 7,200 UAH ($864). These funds were quickly spent on the therapies. In coming months, there are two pre-operative chemotherapies, a surgery (implant installation) and 8 more chemotherapies after the completed surgery.

Jenya’s grandmother (Ludmila Aleksandrovna) and his parents cannot cover medical expenses and ask for your help.
