Sasha was a 9-year old boy from Saraktash village, Orenburg Oblast. He was suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, aggravated by a strong allergy to the main medicine for this disease, Asparginase. Because of the latter, Sasha was bought 3 packs of Erwinase using funds raised by Gift of Life’s benefactors.
To our deep regret, Sasha’s leukaemia was beyond treatment. His symptoms returned during chemotherapy. Everything possible was attempted for Sasha, but he could not be saved, and he passed away in September 2012.
