At the end of November 2019, students of I. Horbachevsky Ternopil National Medical University became the initiators and organizers of the Vienna Ball in Ternopil. The organizing committee included Yaryna Stepaniuk, Anastasia Boiko, Tetiana Stepaniuk, Yulia Valihura, Yana Chaika, Natalia and Maria Kasian. During this event, our students raised almost 50,000 hryvnias.
“We donated 34,000 to the treatment of 18-year-old Oleh Halas from Ternopil, who has Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Initially we planned to donate funds to the pediatric hematology department, but fortunately, at that moment there was no child in need of help, so we bought a medical gurney for the department for 14 thousand. I found out about Oleh’s problem on the Internet. He has been ill for a second year and has a relapse. In January, the third course of chemotherapy will take place on holidays, and then he will have a bone marrow transplant. The mother of the young man was extremely pleased with our help ”, – Yaryna Stepaniuk.
She added that at the end of the ball, many people still brought the money to the organizers, for which everyone is grateful. In 2020, our students are planning to hold this event, so we encourage you to support our students’ projects.
