Where the Money Goes
Cancer Program: Your donations help to pay for bone marrow donor searches in registries around the world, medical treatment, medications, help to affected families.

In the modern world, cancer is no longer a death sentence. Up to 80% of patients can be healed. However, the treatment requires advanced medications and latest methods of testing and therapy. In Russia treatment of cancer is covered by Health Care Insurance and Government high-tech medical program.

Unfortunately, the underfunding of modern cancer treatment in Russian hospitals leads to a constant shortage of the most necessary medicines and consumables for equipment, not to mention innovative drugs. If the patients have no money to pay for the treatment, they turn to charity organizations.

The goal of Association AdVita is to help bring this costly treatment to as many patients as possible. We want to make sure that our patients' lives depend not on their financial situation, but on progress of modern medicine. Your donations help us to buy costly medications and pay for bone marrow donor searches in the international registry.
Burn Program: Your donations help to pay for modern medical materials and equipment, psycho-social rehabilitation of burned children and their families.

Burns are a very dangerous type of trauma. In Russia burns occur on average four times more often than in Western Europe.

Health Care Insurance in Russia covers basic burn treatment, but not expensive dressings and materials for post-burn rehabilitation. Scars not only reduce the functionality of the body, but also disfigure appearance of burn victims.

After the trauma and often loosing family members, psycho-social support is vital for rehabilitation of burn victims, first at the Burns Unit and then after the discharge from the hospital.

Association AdVita is raising funds to purchase modern dressings and pressure garments reducing growth of post-burn scars. Donated funds also help to organize burned children's camps and clubs.
