    Story

    For many children expensive medical treatment can be life changing but for Samira, who has Leukemia, it will be life saving. There is no treatment available in her home city of Bukhara or anywhere in her home country of Uzbekistan. She has been treated in Moscow for a year now through a fund of £50,000 hard raised by family, friends and neighbours all donating small sums but she needs another £25,000 to finish her treatment, which will save her life.

      Update from the Page owner

      It has been quite an emotionally involved appeal on behalf of Samira because the stakes have been so high, and it has taken me a little bit of time to write this huge thank you to everyone that has helped. Together through this appeal we managed to secure over 20% of the shortfall in funding to help with her treatment and that has been sent. Further good news has been that we have had a significant additional donation outside the appeal and on top of that a charity has undertaken to fund much of the hospital cost of the remaining treatment. Therefore the financial challenge has been reduced significantly but there still is one. We need to keep Samira in Moscow over the next few months to complete her treatment, and the medical view is that the treatment is going well. If you know anyone who wished to donate but missed the deadline you donate via PayPal my user rodmccune@lineone.net ref Samira, as we will be sending funds over the coming months. Thanks again to all of you for helping.

    We recently became aware of the gravity of Samira's situation when my wife was in contact with her mother. It is truly sad when the value of a child's life is reduced to money or wealth. I know not all sick children can be saved but with public support Samira can. Please help.
