HELP SAVE ARTEM

THANK YOU ALL!
Dear Friends,

We are so grateful for the all kind of help you've provided! There is no too little or too much if we are talking about donation in order to save a life of a child, we appreciate every dollar!

Sadly, we would like to remind that our fundraising is coming to the end - only 6 days left, and we are still are behind and didn't reach our goal. Therefore, it is a good possibility to donate more and give Artem a chance to survive!!!!!! Needless to say how boy's family is thankful for every donated dollar!

The fundraising was planned for 4 month according to the treatment protocol. The real life is far from any planned protocols, so it will take more time for Artem to go through chemotherapy.

Dear Friends, let's donate more during those last 6 days of our fundraising and SAVE ARTEM!

UPDATE ABOUT ARTEM (MARCH 3, 2015)

Dear friends,

We would like to thank you all in all the contributions you've made for this brave little boy. The fact that Artem is getting ready for a new phase of a chemotherapy is achievement of all of you. A great thanks to the blood donors from Ukrain who supported Artem and who are helping him right now.

Artem is getting ready for a new round of a chemotherapy. This stage will require more expensive medications and more blood donors. Also, a little boy needs a special healthy diet.

You can ask us :" Why are you talking about diet and food expenses?" Let us clarify it for you. There is no secret that economic situation in Ukrain is quickly deteorating. The prices for food and medications are skyrocketing every day!

We ask you once again - we need more money!!!

Dear friends, we know that many of you have already donated, but you can still help by spreading the word, by sharing this information with your friends, family members, coworkers and social networks. We appreciate any kind of help! Please remember, you can give a little boy to grow into a strong and healthy man, and maybe he'll become a one who will discover the universal cancer treatment!

Dear Friends,
On the 4th of February is the World Cancer Day.
Needless to say, there is no family around the world that wouldn’t deal with this deadly and scary disease.
The World Cancer Day coincided with our fundraising to save a life of a 4 year boy Artem, son of our friends.
Buoyant, energetic and a little bit shy Tema has been bravely fighting with his frightening diagnosis – acute lymphoblastic leukemia since October 2014. The disease not only changed the life of Artem’s family, but it is a heavy financial burden for the both boy’s parents Julia and Ruslan.
All treatments, the expensive medications and the search for the blood donors in Ukraine are responsibilities of Artem’s parents. Unfortunately, without our financial support this family has no chance to save their son’s life.
My dear friend’s, this gesture of solidarity is the least I can do to express my empathy to Artem Kravchenko and all people who are going through the difficult and painful procedures to fight for their lives with cancer.
I admire the hundreds of our friends in Canada, USA, Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and Israel, all of those bighearted people who decided to help and already donated money for Artem’s treatment. With your generous help, my dear friends, we received more than $8000. Every cent and every dollar from this amount can be crucial in a very important matter – saving life of a 4 year child.
However, we need more of your help!
Any monetary donation is appreciated to save Artem’s life and to make the world cancer free for our children!

Happy Life before illness
Dear friends,

the holidays have passed, we hope that all of you spent a wonderful time with your families and loved ones. From the depth of our hearts we wish you all the best in new 2015 year.
Artem spent his holidays at the hospital with his mom and dad. Finally they have got a private room, and now they try to make it more useful and comfortable, because this family needs to call it "home" for a long time. ...
Artem's condition is changing every day : he is going through ups and downs, because the desease is very treaky and medications are causing side effects. Few days ago boy had a little break between treatments and even had an opportunity to spend an hour outdoor. Just think : only an hour during last 3 months ! Another course of chemotherapy is about to start. We believe that Artem will recover and will return to a normal routine of a 4 years old boy!
To make it happen PLEASE donate here!

I love toys!

Dear Friends,
I just keep saying "Thank you!" for your generous donations, nice comments and all kinds of support!

I wish I could tell you :"We have a good news!", but unfortunately this moment hasn't came yet. After so many treatments this sweet brave boy has a fever and other side effects. This means the next step of a chemotherapy will be delayed until the condition of Artem's health will allow to do all necessary procedures. The little boy is still in Kyiv with his parents. 

And Yes, we need your support more than ever! 

Please remember : there are no donations are too small or too big - every dollar counts!

Last careless summer
Dear Friends,

I can't stress enough how thankful I am to all of you for your big kind hearts and desire to help!

Yesterday we did a first money transfer, and today we have received a call from Artem's parents who confirmed that they have got money! Artem's parents are so grateful to you for being so generous and understanding in this harsh situation for them back in Ukraine.

During last few days new tests and biopsy have been done. I want to underline how strong this little boy is - biopsy (is quite painful procedure) was performed without anesthetics, because those substances are harmful for Artem's health condition. According to the last tests and biopsy results, his condition is not improving so far, but intensive chemotherapy will be continued and we all need to believe that Artem will survive. Lets all pray for this!

Dear friends, the Holidays are coming. All of us are buying presents for the loved ones. Lets all try to give Artem a most precious gift - GIFT OF LIFE!
Please Donate Generously and SHARE this page among your friends!

Dear friends,

Yesterday night, thanks to our Ukrainian friends, Artem has been transferred to Kyiv Regional Cancer Treatment hospital, located by address: 1 Baggoutovskaya Street, Kyiv. We strongly believe that there are more possibilities for a boy at this hospital.
Two last days were really complicated for Artem and his Parents. The ride from Poltava to Kyiv (about 400 km) was quiet rough for a little boy. All kinds of additional blood works and other tests have been done. Also, the bone marrow and spinal cord biopsy has been done as well. Now we are waiting for the results. Artem is too young to understand all importance of those painful tests and treatments that make him sick, therefore every day he ...asks :"Are we going home soon?" This brave child is missing his cat Timofey and toys badly.
I would like to express gratitude to all nice and supportive people of Kyiv, who came to the hospital to donate blood for Artem. Moreover, any kind of support is important : calls from the friends and just nice people, home-cooked dinners brought by friends and relatives.
Thank you people - you are kind and compassionate ! Let's continue this very significant matter - saving Artem's life!

Enjoying playground before the diagnosis
Dear Friends,

First of all, I would like to thank you for such generous donations, kind comments and support!

Today I want to add some updates about Artem. He has his treatment daily, it is too early to say anything about results. My goal is to add some personal information about this little angel.

Artem is a bit on a shy side . He enjoys watching Disney cartoons and can spend hours experiencing the adventures together with his favourite characters from "Cars". No doubt, boy loves all kind of toys related to this movie! As an ordinary kid, he loves playground at the park near his home. Artem has a big sister, who is the university student. Oh boy, he is sooo happy when she comes to play with him! You know what his favourite food is? Which kid doesn't like McDonald? Artem is not an exception, he just loves French fries with sweet and sour sauce, and for dessert he usually asks his mom to get some ice cream.

I'm writing all of this to make you see not the only a some sick kid who needs money for the treatment. I want you to find a person behind those big eyes!

With you help Artem has a chance to get well and enjoy his life again.
Lets double our effort! Please share this page among your friends!
