Emma was born on the 1st of February 2013 in Zaporozhe, Ukraine. It seemed as though she was an absolutely normal strong little baby, you wouldn’t imagine that there could be anything wrong with her. But at three and a half months, during a regular check-up, doctors found cancer cells in the little baby’s blood. The young family was sent to the regional clinic for a consultation with a haematologist, where her diagnosis was confirmed. At three months old, little Emma was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. The family’s life changed drastically as their tiny baby that had just only started to live underwent highly toxic and difficult procedures. This struggle for life did not come easily for the family and Emma fell behind in physical development from her peers because chemotherapy effects all vital bodily functions. In the 9 months of constant hospital stay, Emma received tens of chemotherapy injections, homeopathies, plenty lumbar punctures, blood sterilisations and numerous transfusions but in spite of the horror and pain of such a hard treatment little Emma entered remission just weeks after her first birthday and together with her mum returned home. It seemed as though the Novikov’s could breathe a sigh of relief but one misfortune replaced the other and in December 2014 a lumbar puncture revealed a relapse. Only a bone marrow transplant can now save Emma’s life. The blood marrow transplant that is needed to save Emma is not accessible to her in Ukraine, as it is not offered to children of such a young age. So the young family is forced to seek help abroad and receive lifesaving treatment without any financial help from their government. A blood marrow transplant will cost a minimum of 100 000 euros ($123 963 USD), the young family does not possess that kind of money and are forced to beg for aid. For gods sake help these parents rescue the most precious, important thing in their lives; their only daughter.
