New Year is joy, gifts and the beginning of everything new. Unfortunately, not everyone will celebrate it at home. Children affected by cancer will have to stay at the hospital. They will have no day off from IV and other painful procedures but together we can support these fearless kids. Let’s place a box of courage full of cute little toys in a treatment room so that children got rewarded for their courage. This idea works great in the world and the New Year’s holidays is the time to introduce this practice to the Lviv Hospital.

The New Year and Christmas holidays are coming and everybody eagerly awaits it. Happy reminiscences of childhood – a nicely decorated fir-tree, hand-made paper snowflakes, confetti, and gifts… There is an ethereal air of holiday, miracle and charm, an expectation of something novel and better, of things never happened before. It is an inevitable feeling of accomplishment of the most secret, bright and challenging dreams. Who of us did not feel it? Who does not expect it? It is children who wait for it most of all. They believe the miracle is at their door, yes, just the door will open and happiness, merriment and the fadeless memories will stay with them forever.
Does a child who will never go to school need to learn how to read? Do we need to look for ways to sit up a child whose muscle tone is too weak to hold him/her in an upright position? Does a child who cannot see need a bed linen with a bright children’s print? Does a child cease to be a child if he/she is diagnosed with a grave illness? We all need to ask these questions, and there’s nothing wrong or awkward about it. We need to ponder it for ourselves. We become stronger if we accept life with all its dimensions, in all its fullness. In your mind, allow the children with incurable diseases to be just that, children. Help them be children in real time.
Max is 8 years old. He overcame a lot of pain and violence at his childhood. He even doesn’t have a simple children happiness. We have more 15 children like Max at our Center. And any of these kids have their own pain. Help us to give them a real winter fairytale, it will return children a faith in other people and confidence that dreams come true!
Christmas is the time of real miracles and fulfillment of cherished desires! December 9-10 at the art plant "Platform" will be the most charming flea market of the year – Christmas Kurazh Bazar. We will sell and buy gifts, drink mulled wine and eat a roast marshmallow, choose a Christmas tree at a Christmas tree market, dance for Christmas songs and exchange greetings. And the main thing is to help children! The purpose of fundraising during Kurazh Bazar is to purchase 2 vacuum systems, 2 pulse oximetry sensors, 2 tonometers, 2 electronic scales for the Irshava regional hospital, 10 flasks of moisturizers for the Ivano-Frankivsk Regional Perinatal Center and 3 heated mattresses for the Berdiansk territorial medical association.
Parents of sick children probably are the strongest in the world. They devote all their time to kids, help them how they even can, give all their strength, love and warmth of their hearts. But after endless visits to hospitals, queues for medicines and prayers for the health of their most precious son or daughter in the world sometimes parents are not able to give kids the opportunity to feel real child’s happiness.
