In the new episode of Podcast of Great Stories, we talked to Daryna Brykailo, co-founder of the Inspiration Family Foundation for Support of Adult Cancer Patients. Daryna told how a group of like-minded people went from friendly initiatives united by working on a common theme to creating a joint foundation.
The Inspiration Family Foundation works in several areas including awareness raising. The organization’s goal is to make sure that every Ukrainian knows what to do if s/he or his/her family members are diagnosed with cancer.
The foundation does not help with money, but provides comprehensive information for those who have had to face a diagnosis. In addition to disseminating information, the organization has a program of emotional support, advocacy, and many ideas and plans for the future. The co-founders of the foundation have personal experience of treatment, which generated a common desire to set up a foundation.
