Good day to everyone. This letter is a plea for help. My name is Olga Pronina. As a devastated mother of a very sick 2 years old Milana Medvetska, I beg you please read this message.

I pray for your help for my daughter, Milana, she is only 2 years old, but has suffered so much! The only way to save the life of my child is the liver transplant, since she suffers from Biliary Atresia. I will be the donor for my child, and I would give her all, only to save her, our little star, our little daughter!              

In Ukraine, where we currently live, doctors could not find a diagnosis for so many months, and the surgery “Kasai” was done too late… now we can only pray. But, with the help of volunteer organizations, we found out that in Ismett Hospital of Palermo, Italy these kinds of surgeries are done very successfully on the daily basis. This is our only hope!!!

The physical stage of Milana’s health is worsening and worsening with each day. Many people are helping us, physically, emotionally and financially. And we are very thankful. But, unfortunately, money is everything… Our family doesn’t have such a big amount, especially now when Ukrainian situation is so bad. And with all the help we’ve already got, we still don’t have a small fraction of needed amount to save the life of our Milana.


Milana is our long-awaited happiness and the second child in the family. Milanka has an older brother, who she loves, and is now 11 years old. Pregnancy and childbirth went well. I regularly took Vitamins, did a lot of walking, and underwent routing blood tests. And on September 24, 2014 at 23:55 (11:55pm) our daughter was born.

On the third day, we were discharged from the hospital and we went home to meet the rest of the excited family: brother, father and grandmother. Milanka was breastfed, gained weight and developed well. Therefore, our pediatrician did not pay attention to the yellow color of her skin right up to 3 months. Then, when we came to her regular check-up visit in 3 months, we heard our first diagnosis of Congenital Hepatitis.

And so it began ... At first, we were sent to local Infectious Diseases Hospital, where my girl was examined for various infections and viruses. Fortunately, they have not been confirmed. But as we got to the hospital on the New Year’s Eve and Christmas, her medical examination was delayed for weeks because of holidays.

Later, in Lviv (another city 150 km from home), we have learned that prognosis were not good, and every day was at stake. Doctors were pulled. Since the infections and virus were not found, we were transferred to Children's Hospital, where after the MRI, the Biliary Atresia (uncorrectable type) was called into a question.

We were sent to Kiev (the capital of Ukraine) to OHMATDIT (Children’s National Specialized Hospital), first to the clinic and then to the hospital. The same evening we went to Kiev; although doctors in our city assured us that it was too late to transfer to Specialized Hospital because we missed the valuable time by spending it on the right diagnosis. In our case, it is necessary for children to be operated before the age of 2 months, and our Milana was 3.5 months at that time.

The next morning, we were for the consultation in Kiev’s clinic, we have not heard of any diagnosis or treatment strategy yet, but simply "Hoped for the best ..." Still, we were not satisfied with any answer, we haven’t only hoped, we have being desperate to save the life of our precious little girl. Through social networks, we contacted the parents of children with the same diagnosis. Special thanks to Angela Latiy that inspired us to keep the faith, and Doctor Galina Vasilevny; also, special thanks to social network “VContact” Rainbow of Life and its volunteers.

We immediately contacted Doctor Galina and drove to the city again. Dr. Galina met us very well. We were pleasantly surprised by the friendly atmosphere in the clinic and attention of Dr.Galina Vasilevny. She confirmed the diagnosis, and dare to do Kasai Portoenterostomy operation method. At that time, my daughter was almost 4 months. It is a miracle, but the operation has helped, despite the late age. The excess bile began to move away from the liver, Milanka’s tests improved. After 2.5 months, we returned home.

Our happiness had no boundaries; we were hoping that our daughter will improve without a transplant! Unfortunately, in December 2015, after suffering ODS, our daughter began to slowly turn yellow, and the liver to increase. Over the last year, for the several times, we were admitted to the hospital for IV infusions, but the condition of the liver did not improve. My baby was getting more yellowish with each day, so were the blood tests worsening too. A new devastating diagnose came into play: Liver Cirrhosis. Therefore, our doctor decided to perform a liver transplantation. We ask you, please help us to save our daughter.
