Within the framework of the project "Support to children of Children's Cancer Center №3 of Volyn Regional Children's Hospital" implemented by the Child Well-being Fund Ukraine with the support of ChildFund Deutschland e.V. (Germany), in partnership with the Stopcancer Foundation, purchased 48 units of the “Cancidas” at total amount of 583 200 UAH.
“Cancidas” is critically necessary for the treatment of infectious and fungal complications of small patients with oncological and oncohematological diseases, but its procurement is not foreseen within the state program.
The Head Physician of the Oncology and Hematology Center, Sergiy Mironyuk, said that the purchase of “Cancidas” is incredibly important for the institution, because 50-60% of cancer patients who couldn’t overcome the disease die precisely from infectious and fungal complications.
In general, since September 2014, in the framework of the project "Support to children of Children's Cancer Center №3 of Volyn Regional Children's Hospital", 48 children received support through providing medicines. The cost of medicine provided more than UAH 1,800,000.
