The "Timosha's Smile" foundation

In memory of our Timosha. Your smile warms our hearts. All our way from pain to calling is described in the autobiographical book of Yuliia Sanko "A Story of one Soul"

Our Story

John 12:24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.’’

Our project started back in 2018, when our son Timosha was diagnosed with blood cancer (leukemia). We started treatment in Ukraine, continued in Belarus and finished in Italy. Of course, like all parents, we were looking for an opportunity for our child to get treatment in the best medical institutions.

In August, 2019 Timosha died.

Treatment in one of the best hospitals in Europe (Italy) has left a deep imprint in our hearts. At that time, being in that ideal conditions for patients and parents, the Dream appeared in our hearts. When we returned home without our boy, that Dream didn’t disappear.

On February 14, 2020, on Timosha’s birthday, we told out loud to our friends and strangers that with God’s help we are planning to build the first Christian oncology centre in Ukraine for the study and treatment of leukemia in children. Our dream has been supported by thousands of caring hearts. We have founded Christian charitable Foundation “Timosha’s smile”. The purpose of which is to build and ensure the functioning of this medical centre.

In the News section you can read step by step how God is doing what he has called us to do.
