I recently chatted with a friend, but she was so full of complaints about everything that I ran away from her.
Then I realized I find it hard to bear negative information. It seems to make the puddles more dirty and the sky greyer. But I understood that these aren’t the problem. I will also say that banality is nonsense. Let’s take your tiny salary and the price of chicken. It doesn’t mean one shouldn’t talk about it. It only means it’s small potatoes, and it should be talked about only to the extent it needs to. Without going over it every day.
As you know, we help cancer patients. The majority of them are in a hopeless situation.
But they are hanging on, grasping at every straw. They do the best they can. They are not discouraged, they try to fully live the time they’ve been left. They are happy with every day spent with children and relatives. There’s no-one to help them, they have nobody, and they are alone with their illness.
I’ve written this a hundred times and this must be the 101st repetition–value what you have.
Our Tanya. I haven’t written about her for a long time. But we haven’t forgotten her and we visit her periodically.
Давайте расскажу как дела у наших “девочек”.
Look at the boy on the couch.
To be honest, Tanya is more worried about him than herself. What will become of him. He’s the main motor of her life.
Please pray for her. May everything turn out fine, even though chances are small.
But we continue to believe! And we’re not surrendering, just as she is not.
We have provided her with money, since the family has none. The medications are available in Donetsk so we provide money instead of buying them ourselves. She still has a chance, though not a very high one…But there is one! Olya and Lyudmila Nikolayevna believe in them.
This chance appeared only because we and you helped them. And you know, I will always remember Olya’s thankful eyes.
If you want to help with money for Lyudmila Nikolayevna’s chemo, please label donations “Olya’s mom” or “Lyudmila Nikolayevna”. Thank you!
Thanks to all of you! Thanks to those who read this post to the end without closing it. Thanks to everyone who continues help us give aid to people!
