In the modern world, cancer is no longer a death sentence. Up to 80% of
patients can be healed. However, the treatment requires advanced
medications and latest methods of testing and therapy. In our country, many
of these medications, tests and therapies are very expensive.
The goal of AdVita fund is to help bring this costly treatment to as many
patients as possible. We want to make sure that our patients' lives depend
not on their financial situation, but on progress of modern medicine.
Donations like yours help us raise thousands of rubles, dollars and euros,
which are used to buy such medications as Vfend ($4,000 for a monthly
therapy) and Cancidas ($12,000), pay for bone marrow donor searches in the
international registry (18,000 euros for each search), tomography tests
(5,000 - 30,000 rubles) and implants (5,000 - 15,000 euros).
You can also support families of sick children, help them with buying food
and clothes, and paying for apartment rent for out-of-town patients and for
cell phone service, which is the only connection with the outside world for
mothers and children who stay at the hospitals for many months.
Your kindness will help to ensure that sick children have all they need for
the recovery. Unfortunately, they are dependent on our kindness only. And
maybe it is for the best.
At the personal page of each of our patient you will find their stories,
latest news and treatment progression, medical documents and donation
report, as well as contact phones and addresses. Most importantly, specific
requests for help are published there. If you have any questions, you can
email us or call at + 7 (812) 337-27-33, + 7 (812) 963-62-43. All urgent
requests are published on the news page.
Our patients constantly need help from blood donors, sometimes from up to 10
donors a week. We would like to ask everyone who is ready to donate his or
her blood to email us or call fund AdVita's blood donation hotline at +7
Our patients also need help from volunteers with bringing groceries to the
hospital or looking for a particular medication at the pharmacies,
transporting patients from one hospital to another or simply visiting a
child. In addition, we need volunteers to help with organizing charitable
events. We will also appreciate your ideas and help with spreading the word
about our patients.
We will be very grateful for any help and support.
Out-of-town patients that come for bone marrow transplantation to Pavlov State Medical University often need to rent apartments near BMT clinic that is located on
ul. Rentgena, 12. The apartments have to be clean and without any mold or leaks. We will be very grateful for help with finding and paying for studio and
one-bedroom apartments near Petrogradskaya subway station. In some cases, patients can also rent a room from the apartment owners.
However, our patients cannot rent rooms in communal apartments due to health concerns.
