23 years old, Kyrgyzstan, Bishkek.
Diagnosis: Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
The purpose: Bone marrow transplantation
Anna was born in Kyrgyzstan, lived all her life in Bishkek with her parents and her beloved sister.
She was always very active. Physical education has always remained a favorite subject at school. In high school, she became interested in orienteering, tourism and after that she realized that she simply had to become a coach and develop a healthy lifestyle.
After school, she entered the Kyrgyz Academy of Physical Culture and Sports, also on a budget! The study was fascinating, the grades were excellent. The red diploma is the next step.
One day her world turned upside down, because she got to Rugby. In Kyrgyzstan, it was something new, unusual, you can also let off steam for a girl, not a sport, but a dream. Thanks to the contribution of the coaches, after a couple of months of training, she was able to perform at competitions and since then, happy training days have replaced themselves, leaving only joy and positivity.
But in 2021, like a bolt from the blue, the verdict came down: Blood cancer.
Give up?! By no means, it’s the 21st century, if you tune in, you can cure everything!
The only difficulty is the country. Medicine is developed, but there are no advanced technologies. Clinics in Russia billed from 4 million and above, but there was not enough time. It was decided to be treated on the spot and in fact.
Fortunately, the athlete’s body is strong! Chemotherapy has borne fruit. Anya entered the first remission. She was stable, strong. She even let me go back to training.
It remained a small matter, to continue receiving chemotherapy for 2 years, to stay in remission for 5 years and, you are removed from the oncology register, and you are healthy!
She lasted a year…
Relapse, 92% of bone marrow damage. An urgent post-remission course of chemotherapy was carried out, but practically gave no result…
Now the situation has changed, there is no way to do without a transplant. Otherwise, her life will go from relapse to relapse.
Such operations are not carried out in Kyrgyzstan: there are no specialists and equipment. The main difficulty: it is impossible to choose a donor and they do not do compatibility tests. The most affordable option is to fly to Russia. And the sooner the better. After all, even now she is on high-dose chemotherapy to go into remission again. And then the transplant will become more feasible.
Since she is a foreigner, the transplantation procedure is very expensive, and also increases due to the absence of a donor. All these expenses fall on the shoulders of the family, and they do not have such funds. At the moment, this is at least 4 million rubles (approximately 53,000 US dollars).
We are opening the collection in the hope that together we will help Anna cope with her illness and return home to her beloved family!
