On Wednesday I found on the Internet information about the serious life threatening health problems that Ukrainian IM Galina Shliahtich (multiple IPCA Women World Chess Champion; Ukrainian Women’s Champion 1998) is facing. She has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis since 1993, and was also diagnosed with Tuberculosis in 2006. She needs help.
Galina and I played on the Ukrainian U-18 team in 1988. I have not met Galina for many years.
Some time ago there was a TV report (in the Ukrainian language) on Galina’s problem by the Ukrainian TSN channel.
More details in Russian are posted in my Russian language blog (http://detiarbata.livejournal.com/245352.html). More information on how to help Galina will hopefully follow in the next days. My contact email is email@example.com
