Lida Legkobyt

Lida-Legkobyt-2-1501

Born on: 01/11/2007.

Disease: Retroperitoneal neuroblastoma.

Blood Type: AB(IV) Rh(-).

Lida is one of the misfortunate kids when it comes to family and health. Her father has another family and not interested in her well being while her mother is not capable of providing care. Lida is raised by her grandmother (Ina Pavlovna) who provides an excellent care and pays for the medical expenses. Despite the circumstances, Lida is a cheerful, social kid loved by everyone at daycare. “She is the same age as my daughter, but what a difference in the development and perception of the world! My daughter is still just a kid, and Lida is already a grown up adult…” said one of the local volunteers.

Last June, Lida got very ill. Ultrasound revealed a tumor of the retroperitoneal space, which was removed at the National Cancer Institute. Doctors reassured that the surgery was successful – she just needs to take all the necessary medications and go through the course of chemotherapy back home in the city of Rivne. Her grandmother and aunt were able to cover the surgery and first chemotherapy, but prescription drugs and absence of donor blood remained an issue. At present, Lida needs to go through the 6th chemotherapy.
