Gift of Life helps to pay medical expenses for children and young adults (aged up to 25) diagnosed with cancer and hematologic diseases and receiving their treatment in Russian hospitals.

An application must include official medical documents and can be submitted by patients, parents or legal guardians. Treatment abroad is paid for, only when a team of doctors has established necessary diagnostics or treatment cannot be provided in Russia. The foundation cannot help non-Russian citizens with receiving treatment abroad.

According to the foundation policy, we do not pay for alternative medicine treatments.
