This is Polina Ostapenko's liver transplant fund. All the funds will be used for Polina's medical expenses. Thank you for your support!

My little 7 months old niece (Polina Ostapenko) was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia, witch is Deadly, and she desperately needs a liver transplant! They are not able to perform these kind of surgeries in Ukraine, where little Polina is from, because of a lack of equipment for rehabilitation. So we need to turn to some other countries for support.
The liver transplant surgery costs a lot of money, from 150.000 to 200.000$ that a young family from Ukraine is just not able to get on their own. But if we all try to help little Polina just by a little donation from each one of us, she will survive and will make her parents the happiest, because there is nothing worse for a parent than seeing their child being severely sick and not being able to help!!!
As I said before, Polina and her family are still in Ukraine, in a hospital called (the ministry of Shalitova) in Kiev, trying to find a matching donor for a transplant and also trying desperately to get all the money they need for the surgery! Meanwhile, I am in the USA, on behalf of my cousin, who is the father of little Polina, going to be the Beneficiary for Polina's funds, which will be transferred to Polina's parents directly after the donation fund is over.
I hope that you will not take our problem lightly and will support us with our situation!
Please, share our story and this link with your family and friends! The more people we are, the faster we can reach our goal, to help 7 month old Polina live a long and happy life!!!
Thank you for your understanding and your generosity!!!
