Hi, good people. My name is Yuriy. I'm trying to help my friend Irma. She's got a cancer of lymph 2nd stage.
This is what Irma tells about herself:
"Hi, good people. My name is Irma. I'm 29.
I am Georgian but live in Ukraine. I am a doctor.
During several years I've been curing a lot of people, and never expected that soon I may need help myself.
Recently I had a regular medical inspection and doctors found that I have a CANCER...
The sum that doctor say I need for chemical therapy is at least $30 thousands of dollars. For my current doctor's salary in Ukraine it's a 5 year's of work, next to impossible.
I am still shocked... But I love life and my friends support me much. My friend Yuriy told me that good people can help me defeat against that hard illness. I would appreciate any support or donations that you can do.
Any information about really active funds that can really help will be appreciated. Also any medications or simply money will help.
I believe that our world is full of friends and helpful people. I always did and would have done the same for my friends. I also believe that “Cancer is a word, not a sentence.”

This is like facebook, but for Ukraine.
Please help me. Thank you, my friends!"
In Ukraine it's not obligatory to get an insurance, that's why all expences about any cancer or anither deceases are paid by patient, not government, and a few funds barely support a few sick people.
Unfortunately Ukraine is also not in the list of supportted countries by gofundme yet. I live in NL and will make sure money is delivered to Irma via wire transfers, webmoney or any other way. I will also present paychecks that all the money are being used for real medical treatment. The chemotherapy starts already next week but we have money to pay off just for a first week of that.
Hope Irma gets better soon.
Irma's father died 5 years ago. She has only mother and us.
All our friends in European Union, United States and Ukraine are trying to help her now, but still without your help, my friends it is impossible to collect the full amount.

After defeat the disease Irma will continue working as a doctor in Kharkiv city Ukrainian national hospital helping other people fight against their deceases.
Let's make it happen together!...
