The main purpose is to give hope to all the children and their parents; to let them know that there is still a chance that they will be able to overcome this terrible disease.

This concert is timed to the World Day of the Child with Cancer. The purpose of this event is to raise funds for the treatment of children from the oncology department of Dnipropetrovsk Regional Hospital.
For the third time in our town auction of Nikopol artists in support of children with cancer is held. The problem of the treatment for this diagnosis has become hardship for all parents and volunteer organizations. If there're no modern potent drugs, there'll be no effective treatment. Unfortunately, the medicine has become too expensive.
