Hello! My daughter Zhenya Lentyaeva got sick with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when she was 13, in fall 2005. Her legs started to ache; she turned pale and was fatigued. When Zhenya started getting short of breath, I took her to a clinic. The blood test results were horrifying. Zhenya's hemoglobin was at 42, leukocytes at 150,000 and she had 100% of blasts (cancerous cells). We were referred to Voronezh regional clinic, where the diagnosis was confirmed. Zhenya was on treatment for nine months, during which she completed chemotherapy. At the end of July 2006, she was discharged. For four months, we were at home and Zhenya took supporting chemotherapy and had weekly blood tests. Unfortunately, in November she relapsed. Now she will not be able to survive without bone marrow transplant.
Zhenya is now 15. This year her class is going to a graduation ball. She wanted to go to it so much when she thought she was healed. I have nobody else aside from Zhenya. Her father had remarried and has another daughter, so he does not help us at all.
The bone marrow transplantation will be performed at Pavlov State Medical University in St. Petersburg. The operation itself will be free, but the search for the donor at the international registry costs 15,000 euros, and the delivery of transplant costs another 2,500 euros.
I will never be able to raise this much money on my own, and we have very little time left.
Please help us! Give Zhenya the gift of life!


Update as of April 20, 2007. AdVita fund paid 2,000 euros for the donor search for Zhenya using the funds collected for all patients. The search for the donor has began.

Update as of August 7, 2007. Zhenya had a relapse. She has a high count of blast cells while also having cytopenia. She also shows signs of neuroleukemia. Zhenya is in a very serious condition. She cannot receive chemotherapy now due to low leukocyte count. It is also dangerous to stimulate leukocyte growth with drugs due to high blast cell count.
Zhenya needs help with buying medications that would help fight complications from infections, such as Vancomycin, Meronem and Diflucan (for intravenous injection).

Update as of August 14, 2007. Zhenya is in a critical condition. She is in coma, on artificial lung ventilation and with a swelling of her brain. Her bone marrow is filled with blast cells. The search for the donor has been halted.
