The main statutory activity of the «Lona» Charitable Foundation is to provide patients from vulnerable families in the Department of Pediatric Oncology of the Republican Scientific Oncology Center with chemotherapy medicines and some other supportive medicines during their treatment
As we know, chemotherapy is widely used in modern medicine to fight cancer. The method is based on the introduction of highly toxic medicines into the body that destroys cancer cells or stopping their further development. The use of modern protocols in combination with complementary and supportive therapy, full-fledged rehabilitation allows pediatric oncologists to minimize
complications and improve the result of treatment.
It should be noted that cancer treatment with chemotherapy in many cases becomes the only way to save a person's life.
In this context, timely provision of patients with chemotherapy medicines on a free of charge basis always remains relevant issue for cancer-stricken children from poor families of the country.
On April 9, 2021, with the support of our donors we bought another batch of popular chemotherapy medicines for use of our wards – young patients of the Department of Pediatric Oncology of the Republican Scientific Oncology Center. In particular, the fund purchased the following necessary medicines as doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, ifosfamide, carboplatin and others, which is an approximate need of the mentioned department of pediatric oncology for the period of another quarter.
