  • Cancer crowdfunding fundraiser for my friend

    I'll make this short, because I don't really know what to say in a thread like this.
    My friend, a young woman in her late 20s, Irina, has been suffering from thyroid cancer and urgently needs to undergo treatment. She's already had an operation in February to remove a tumor and now needs to undergo radio-iodine therapy in Estonia in order to destroy the cancer for good. In Russia we have similar facilities, but medical regulations here mean that the dose is limited; and she really needs a rather bigger dose that is only permissible in the EU.

    She's quite poor, from an economically depressed Russian region, and has only her best friend and mother to help her with money, right now they're trying to get a big loan from people they know and also sell their garage.. but there's not much time to go now (about 3 weeks), and even if they succeed I don't want them to sell all the clothes off their backs just to pay for this treatment, so I've decided to help them.
    I've put down the deposit for the treatment already, and now I'm organizing this fundraiser in the hopes that some people here have experience with this sort of thing among their own friends or family, and might be willing to join me in donating some money towards Irina's treatment.

    I decided against PRing this thing on my Facebook as most people on my Facebook are those that I haven't talked to for over 8 years, never-mind seen in person. Remembering ronnieraygun's fundraiser last year (that unfortunately ended tragically), I figured here would be a better place; lots of people from around the world, and some of you know me. The mods have very kindly given me permission to spread this campaign to such a large audience via means of this forum, so don't worry about that.

    And here's the link. Give what you can, or at least leave some kind words.

    If anyone has trouble making a donation, or wants to find out more details about something, just send me a PM or write in this thread; I'll get back to you.
    Thank you.

                I wish your friend well FP, and hope she defeats that asshole of cancer.

                I lost many in my family to cancer so all the best to her.

                  Thanks, but she's my friend, and I'm just doing what's in my power to do.

                  Not trying to suck up, but surely it's yours and others' here compassion that deserves applause. You've never met this person and never will yet you are ready to help.
