More than 3300 euros was raised for the foundation all in all.


Donations were raised at holiday music concerts "The Singing Snow" and Eesti Kontsert and Hennessy New Year's concerts "Nordic Pulse".


"We met many kinds people, who spontaneously donated for cancer patients fighting for their lives," said Katrin Kuusemäe, the CEO of the Gift of Life Cancer Treatment Foundation. "Some concluded the year 2017 with a good deed, and some started the new year with one. Everyone who donated became a little bit more cheerful. We appreciate all the donors and our long-term partner Eesti Kontsert for having their door open for us."

 

In 2018 the cancer treatment foundation continues its work in making sure that every cancer patient in Estonia has an opportunity for getting better treatment. At the beginning of the year musician Toomas Vanem and poet Aapo Ilves wrote a song "Head uut aastat" (Happy New Year), performed by Anne Veski, Karl Madis, Luisa Värk, Kadi Toom, Uku Suviste, Henrik Normann and the band Karavan. With this song they rally people to support Kristi, a 39-year old mother of three in her fight with brain cancer. The cancer treatment foundation has supported her treatment since the beginning of 2017.The treatment has been effective and must continue.

 

The music video will be broadcast on Kanal 2 at the beginning of the year and can be watched here: https://reporter.postimees.ee/4362503/kuidas-meeldib-karavan-sobrad-head-uut-aastat.
