Our Bone Marrow Transplants Program primarily helps patients awaiting transplants in St. Petersburg, Russia. We work together with our partner, AdVita fund, to raise money for search for the donors and harvesting of bone marrow for transplants. However, sometimes patients have to travel elsewhere for bone marrow transplants. Their stories are listed below.

- Difficulties faced by Russian patients who need bone marrow transplants.
Olga was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma in June 2010. After chemotherapy and radiation in her home country, Moldova, she achieved remission. In October 2011 she had a femoral bone prosthesis installed successfully. Unfortunately, a relapse followed. Olga urgently needs high dose chemotherapy and stem cell transplant. As this procedure is not available in Moldova, she needs to travel abroad to get treatment. Munster University Clinic in Germany will accept Olga once she prepays 65,000 euros. Please help Olga beat her disease!
