Foundation for Children with Oncological Diseases Krwinka was established on the initiative of parents of sick children in 1995.
“It was our personal experience that made us act”, recalls Elżbieta Budny.“When I heard the diagnosis: leukaemia, I only knew about this disease as much as from the ‘Love Story’ film. I didn't know what I was dealing with or what to do to save my little son. The situation was similar to other parents, therefore, we were connected by a common fate. In the ward on Sporna Street, we decided to found a circle of people supporting children, a clinic and each other...over time, the circle transformed into a foundation. The three of us, including myself, unfortunately lost the fight and lost the children but others are still alive. We have also acquired invaluable knowledge and the experience that we share with the parents of little patients.”
