The Victoria Fund was created in memory of our dear daughter Victoria Vysotskaya. We want to see cure found for medulloblastoma, so that no child has to die of it, so that no parent has to lose their child.

In October 2016 after a few days of not feeling well our dear 5-year-old daughter Victoria was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, the most common brain cancer among children. She fought through all the hardships of the treatment that followed with a smile, curiosity, creativity and determination. She continued with the same attitude even after her cancer relapsed right at the end of her initial treatment. The subsequent treatment was not effective either and she passed away in January 2019, at the age of 7.

During her life Victoria showed a huge love of life and all things living, she was curious about everything. She donated to protection of cheetahs, she was planning to get a dog, she wrote and illustrated two children's books and got them published, she loved to draw and paint, so much that she wanted to become an artist when she grew up. Unfortunately, it didn't happen, as there aren't enough effective treatments for some types of medulloblastoma. Please support us in raising money for research into effective cures in memory of Victoria and for other kids.
