One ruble - the price of life

In the Children's Oncology Center in St. Petersburg there's no money for diagnosis. Good and reliable people try to raise the necessary funds. It is very easy to do! (the link below). The Nuzhna pomosh (Need help) fundation's webpage where the fund-raising process takes place, but so shamefully slow (It's in Russian, but you could find out how to make a payment using card or Webmoney intuitively or using auto-translators).

The original article by Vladimir Pozner (honored Russian and USA journalist and former cancer patient), which I translated into English:

I rarely participate in public fundraising and don't belong to charitable organizations. Russian or foreign, for a number of reasons. But today I make an exception. It is about the life and health of three and a half thousand Russians annually faced with a diagnosis of cancer.

I know what cancer is not hearsay. I know how time is important to obtain an adequate, professional, high-tech treatment. And it's not just doctors' qualifications. Importance and availability of drugs, and the presence of highly complex devices, and the ability to manipulate them, and the availability of laboratory tests.

Many years ago, the first Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev and his wife Raisa created Russia's cancer clinic-Institute of Pediatric Oncology, Hematology and Transplantation. It was decided to build in St. Petersburg. Unfortunately Raisa did not survive before the opening of the Research Institute, but the clinic, which now bears her name, was one of the best in Europe.

Now SRI - the country's only federal clinic where they do a bone marrow transplant of all kinds and of any complexity. The clinic has seven laboratories that carry out unique research on the complexity of blood, tissue and bone marrow. On the basis of these studies, doctors put an accurate diagnosis, prognosis justify, pick a course of treatment, monitor the progress of the disease, bone marrow engraftment, determine the dosage of drugs... In short, do everything that leads to recovery of man and his return to life.

State built do equip a laboratory in this Research Institute. But the money for reagents and other consumables, which would allow these laboratories to run smoothly - do not. It causes that the labs stop everything.

Not enough 32 million rubles a year. Large amount... But only at first glance. Think about it: if 32 million people would donate just one ruble, the issue will be resolved.

Sacrificing a ridiculous sum, we are going to save the lives of real people. And maybe your own.

Do you get taller when you stretch?

Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd
ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
My site goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and
I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you're interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!

My teacher prof. Nikolay Kravtsov told me that the accordionist's appearance should only have white teeth and white accordion keys, the rest must be black. Though I ddo not play accordion for a white, I got the lesson. :)
