Anna Ponomarev, 21 years old, was diagnosed at the age of 21 months with sarcoma cancer. She underwent surgery, chemotherapy and radiation at the Schneider Medical Center and completely healed.

When she was six years old, her father died.

At the age of 15, Anna was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. She once again underwent surgery and chemotherapy, as well as bone marrow transplant, which failed.

Due to her situation, Anna's doctors had to amputate her right leg, above her knee. For the following five years, Anna was in close follow up and even went abroad to study.

Six months ago the sarcoma returned, this time to her jawbone. Anna went through an operation to remove her jaw and implant a bone taken from her back instead. 

Two months ago she also underwent genetic testing, to determine the gene responsible for the recurring sarcoma in order to adapt treatment. The drug Keytruda, not currently in her medical basket, was found to be very effective in treating this condition, with an 80% estimated success rate.

Treatment with Keytruda amounts to 16,800 NIS a month, which Anna has no way to fund.
