Elena is 42 years old, she is a mother of four children, a furniture designer, and volunteer. In winter, she had a sore throat, as often happens, at first a little, then more, and then so unbearable that it became difficult to breathe and speak. Further events began to unfold so rapidly that did not have time to recover, or is it with her. The local ENT doctor sent her to test for tumor markers, and they immediately showed that stage 3 throat cancer, with metastasis. From that moment the shock has not passed until now.

The chance to destroy malignant cells and with that a chance to live is given to the boy by the German physicians. They are ready to start on Nikita’s treatment with modern methods of anti-tumor vaccination and immunotherapy.
Imagine that all your life you have to breathe through a mask of two dozen thick layers. It cannot be removed, cleaned, changed. Periodically you are stifled with cough that cannot be stopped for hours... That’s how Vladik Bogomazov lives for 10 years. He is sick with cystic fibrosis. Every day the infection devours the lungs and breathing becomes harder.
Hello everybody. My name is Anatoly Kondratyuk.
I am an active lifestyle, engaged in sports, hardening, practicing medical hunger. I have been a vegetarian for 9 years.
I love running and decided to run on the Kyiv Half Marathon for the little boy with a wonderful story.
I've been jogging for over a year. It has become a big part of my life for this short period. I relax, think and enjoy while running. Last year I ran many half marathons in Ukraine and abroad. I like this atmosphere, here I found many friends.
I will run 21 km on Kyiv Half Marathon, for the one boy, a ward of the Krona Charitable Foundation.
In early March last year, near the station "Troieshchyna-2", drivers of the Kiev city electric train picked up a child without consciousness. It was a boy with serious injuries. They called for an emergency ambulance, which took the child to the hospital where the boy was operated. Then it turned out that it was 11-year-old Danylo Bartosh, who was returning home from school. For 10 months doctors have been struggling for his life. He is alive but in a difficult condition. The child needs a long-term rehabilitation and medical support.
I will not run at Wizzair Kyiv Marathon this time. Because the run itself is not important. My purpose is to raise money to support doctors who give children healthy hearts and the opportunity to breathe with full breasts. I began running three years ago in order to help children. I wanted to show myself and everyone who knows me that saving someone's life requires a good effort. Actually, such a goal is worth much more than a jog. No need to look for excuses, just start moving your butt. And that's what each of us can do.

"Hi, I'm Vasilok!", every day the doctors of the oncohematological department hear such a congratulation from the 4-year-old Vasylyna Burlina. She literally rages with life's emotions. Previously, Vasylyna was running and jumping a lot. Now such an activity is absolutely contraindicated for her because a terrible diagnosis myelodysplastic syndrome has become a threat to her life. Recently, Vasylyna began attending a kindergarten. She adapted so difficulty to new conditions, she was very tired and nervous. So, in June 2018, doctors diagnosed her with a myelodysplastic syndrome.
