Timafei is a very young warrior, he's only 4 years old and he's fighting leukemia since he was only 2 years old (27/07/2014). From that day, he spent 8 months in hospital for rehab and then 6 months of chemotherapy. He won 2 times against it, doctors told us that he was safe , but unfortunately it was not true.
Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), is a cancer that starts from the early version of white blood cells called lymphocytes in the bone marrow (the soft inner part of the bones, where new blood cells are made).Leukemia cells usually invade the blood fairly quickly. They can
then spread to other parts of the body.
Today, for the 3th time, Timafei is fighting again against leukemia, but this time , is the worst one.
His life is hard. He is constantly fighting against fever and infections that don’t go away or keep coming back.
My name is Francesca, I am an ukrainian student who lives in Italy.
Today, I am here to help my courageous friend, Marina Zlenko, Timafei's mother who lives in Ukraine. Marina is actually spending one of the hardest moment of her life.
At the moment, HOPE, is the only thing that bring us the force to keep going, to fight and never give up for life.
Bone marrow transplant is, in fact, our last HOPE. We need enough founds to let Timafei and Marina travel urgently from Chernigov (Ukraine) to the specialized hospital of Genova (Italy), where the transplant is going to take place.
With little bit we can rekindle hope, because this little creature has the right to live and dream like all of us.
We all believe that Timafei can win this fight. He will turn 5 the 10th of May, and we hope, that we will celebrate his birthday and the end of his horrible disease as well. We need your help.
