Emergency Fund for My Mother Valentine: Help Save Her Life

My name is Maks Histibe, and you might know me for my work in music, sound design, and video production over the past 15 years. I am currently located in Kyiv, Ukraine, doing everything I can to support my loved ones during these challenging times.

My mother, Valentine, is in a very tough condition at the moment. She was recently hospitalized with a heart attack and, on the day she was released, she got stuck in an elevator during a power outage caused by Russian air strikes. Tragically, she suffered a stroke during this incident. Now, she’s unable to walk, and her diagnosis includes severe complications from the stroke.

It’s extremely uncomfortable for me to go online with this story, but I have to do it. I’m trying to raise funds through my music to support her, but it’s not enough. Her treatment and medication are critical as she is currently in intensive therapy, where doctors are working hard to save her life despite the ongoing power outages, nighttime air strikes, and other threats due to the war.

Valentine dedicated 40 years of her life working at the military hospital as a pharmacist, helping countless others. However, now, during the war, the military hospital is only accepting soldiers, and she cannot receive treatment there. Public hospitals are overwhelmed and unable to provide the necessary care for her condition. The only place where she can get the proper treatment and care is a private clinic here in Kyiv, and she has no one but me to support her.

If you or your friends can help support my mother right now, I would be deeply grateful. Any help would be immensely appreciated. My goal is to raise $10,000 to cover her treatment and care, which is essential for her recovery.
