Mother and father Gayane and Andranik received the news no parent wants to hear – your baby has cancer. Two-year-old baby Monika Grigoryan, Gayane and Andranik's only child, has been diagnosed with hepatoblastoma (liver cancer).
Andranik is the head of the communications and cybersecurity department of the Artsakh Defense Army, and fought in the 2020 Artsakh War. During the war, their home was damaged, so the family was temporarily displaced to Yerevan. The family survived the war, but now they have a new battle to face.
At the tender age of two, Monika will likely need to undergo chemotherapy, a liver transplant abroad, and long-term treatment. However, there is hope. The 5-year survival rate for combined stages of hepatoblastoma is 60%-70%. The Grigoryan family lives in Stepanakert, Artsakh, but Monika is currently being treated at the Hematology Center in Yerevan. Proceeds raised will be directed for the immediate care of baby Monika.
Every dollar counts, and all donations accepted! Help us reach our goal to raise $11,000 for baby Monika by making a generous donation and sharing our campaign with your friends and family.
Thank you for your unwavering support of emergency SOAR initiatives. All donations will be managed by SOAR, and no funds earmarked for Monika's care will be transferred to an outside organization.
