Foundation is to help Lubov Krayushkina in her fight for life

In early February 2016, our charity foundation received a request for help from a young woman named Lubov Krayushkina, who, for the last six years has been fighting with Pseudomyxoma peritonei, which is a rare type of cancer.
The condition requires complex treatment, which includes the complete removal of all tumors and undergoing intraperitoneal chemotherapy. If all tumors are not completely removed from the patient, they will continue to grow and secrete mucin, which is a substance that begins to accumulate in the abdomen.
Lubov has endured numerous operations and courses of chemotherapy during her fight against this condition. Unfortunately, there is currently no cure available for this disease and Lubov continues to battle against fluid accumulation in her abdomen. She requires further surgery, which, although poses a great risk, is her only chance for survival. Specifically, Lubov requires cytoreductive surgery followed by hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC). Perfusion of chemotherapy into the abdomen in the mode of hyperthermia (39̊-43̊ C) has been identified as one of the most effective treatments available today for complex abdominal tumors.
This operation, followed by HIPEC, will be performed by the doctors at Mercy Medical Centre in the state of Baltimore (USA). The foundation approved the signing of a contract with the clinic and will partially sponsor the treatment for Krayushkina.
We hope that this course of treatment will be successful and Lubov will have a chance to defeat this disease.
