Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. One Saturday morning in November 2016, Denis' wife, Vika, arrived at a preteen event at church, put down her bag, and suddenly fell to the floor unconscious. Denis and others on site administered CPR until an ambulance arrived. She remained in a coma for many weeks. Through the help of the prayers and financial support of many friends, Denis has coordinated her care to the point where much progress has been made, but her life remains extremely fragile and uncertain. Please read the journal entries to know the full story. Currently (March 2019) Denis and Vika are in need of extra financial support, which for anyone outside of the Russian Federation wishing to help, this is best accomplished by using Western Union. For more details contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for reading.
