Since 2002, AdVita Fund has been providing support to children and adults with oncological, hematological and immunological diseases treated in hospitals of St. Petersburg, Russia. We also provide regular support to the oncological centers in St. Petersburg, and first and foremost Raisa Gorbacheva Memorial Institute of Children Oncology, Hematology and Transplantology.
Today most oncological patients can be fully cured. However, to provide effective treatment doctors need expensive drugs, cutting-edge methods of diagnostics and therapy. Unfortunately, lack of funding of oncological hospitals leads to the constant deficit of necessary drugs, supplies and reagents for lab research. Additionally, many oncological patients and the families cannot afford to pay for the bone marrow donor search in Russian and foreign registers. When patients do not have enough money for the treatment they need, they turn to charities for assistance.
The AdVita Fund’s goal is to make state-of-the-art treatment protocols available for each person regardless of his or her age, income or medical history. We help Russian doctors to provide treatments to patients according to global standards.
Most of the patients we support are adults. AdVita is one of the few charities in Russia which provides assistance to adults. People from all over the country come to us for help.
What we do to help:
- AdVita helps to pay for drugs, supplies, medical examinations and rehabilitation programs which are not covered by the budget quotas. The Fund also covers the expenses for equipment and supplies for oncology units in hospitals.
- AdVita helps to find blood and bone marrow donors, covers the search for, and activations of bone marrow matching donors in Russian and foreign registers.
- Advita helps to pay rent to out of town patients and their families; provides financial, psychological and social support to patients and their families.
- AdVita supports clinical research, covers tuition costs and provides internship opportunities for medical professionals.
