MARYANA NESIS

Volunteer, Projects Coordinator

Maryana is a lawyer; she graduated from the Law Faculty of Saint-Petersburg State University and then moved to London where she received two masters degrees in commercial and medical law. “The idea of working for a charity has always been living at the back of my mind, finally it materialised and I became involved with the Gift of Life. This work continuously teaches me something new about people, about cooperation, about compassion, and about myself. When you help someone, it gives you the feeling that you are needed, that you actually live a meaningful life rather than wasting your life. I view this opportunity as a great honour. There is so much more we have to do and I will continue to be here to raise awareness and hopefully save many lives. I would certainly recommend volunteering to others as it enlarges your world and brings a new perspective to it. If we all do something, no matter how big or small, it can make a real, positive difference to cancer patients and their families.”
