Mission: AdVita Fund USA was founded to help improve access to most effective treatment to as many children and adult cancer patients as possible.  We want to make sure that our patients’ lives depend not on their financial situation, but on the progress of modern medicine.
Results: Raised over $300,000 in 2012. Contributed to cost of cancer treatment and bone marrow donor searches for 36 patients.
Target demographics: Children and young people with cancer from Russia and former Soviet Union.
Programs: * We support patients who have to travel for treatment abroad due to having high-risk and advanced cancers, or other serious illnesses, and can no longer be offered treatment within Russia. * Bone marrow transplants: we contribute to the cost of donor searches and delivery of transplants and imported equipment for bone marrow transplantation. Since Russia lacks its own bone marrow donor registry, patients who need the transplants have to pay over $25,000 for the search for the donor, collection of bone marrow and delivery of transplant to St. Petersburg. * Patients from Former Soviet Union: we support children and their families who travel to St. Petersburg from impoverished former Soviet Union countries that lack adequate medical facilities, trained personnel and medications. As non-citizens, these children are billed the full cost of treatment. * Supporting medications: we supply necessary medications to the children who may need long-term therapy with expensive drugs. For example, antifungal drugs, such as Vfend, cost over $3,000 a month.
