Due to this year events in Ukraine, the problem of cancer patients’ treatments somehow modestly withdrew into the background; but it didn’t become non-actual.
From year to year the number of cancer cases did not decrease. Children and adults also need help and our attention.
This year we have breached a lot of traditions acquired during the Foundation activity time, but a Februaty announced concert "To Live Tomorrow" was not cancelled or postponed; this year we jointed our friends again. Long before February 15 - the day of children with cancer- Charity Foundation with the Department of Education of Nicopol held the children's drawing competition "There is always Hope". Children expressed in their works so magnificent warmth and responsible approach to the canser problem that it was very difficult to choose a winner. Content and technique relevation were the criterion of winner selection.
The competition was won by the Tanan Marina’s work, who is a pupil of the scholl No23. The second runner-up for competition was Gorelova Eugine -a scholl No6 pupil, the third runner-up was Teteryuk Maria – a scholl No20 pupil, the forth – Shapoval Vlada - a a scholl No20 pupil, the fifth- Malahova Katerina - a scholl No12 pupil. All the winners were solemnly greeted, their drawings will be posted on the city billboards and will remind adults how important to be together in trouble and needs...
Last year the pupils of school №12 provided everyone by a gold ribbon with a heart in the middle of it as a symbol of cancer overcoming hope. On that day shcoll pupils took the already familiar places – at the entrance to the auditorium and pinned everyone handmade lovebirds.
Our ward Daniil Barannik, who with his mother had visited our concert, was very glad to get this dove. He is not fully recovered and uses crutches, but cancer has retreated and it is a great joy. David Shoter and his mother visited his event too. And for them we are sincerely happy and wish the boy a full recovery and a happy life.
The children received small gifts from our Foundation and charitable Fund "New life", headed by Natalia Mezentseva. And on the stage the young talents of the city one-by-one shined brightly. This year there was the largest number of concert participants.
