In the spring, during the period of self-isolation, Polina Gagarina became a participant in the project of the Konstantin Khabensky Charitable Foundation #pobudsomnaya: she went live on Instagram with her fan, the four-year-old ward of the Khabensky Foundation Serafima. During the broadcast, the girl sang her favorite song from the singer's repertoire - "There is no more drama." And at the end of the broadcast, Polina Gagarina promised Seraphima a personal meeting in Moscow.

Polina fulfilled her promise: she invited the girl's family to the shooting of the ninth season of the show "The Voice". For this, they specially came from Orenburg to Moscow. Personal acquaintance took place before the recording of the program. Sima talked to Polina Gagarina, took a picture with her and even sat in the mentor's chair.

“I wish little Sima and her wonderful parents the most important thing - health and strength! From the bottom of my heart I thank Konstantin Khabensky and the guys from the Foundation for their kind hearts and great deeds, ”said Polina Gagarina.

Seraphima is a ward of the Konstantin Khabensky Charitable Foundation. In May 2019, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. After an urgent operation, the girl needed a course of proton therapy, a modern type of treatment that is highly effective, but very expensive. The girl's family could not pay for the course on their own; the Konstantin Khabensky Charitable Foundation helped them in this, which collected the full cost of the treatment.

“It so happened that each stage in Sima's life was accompanied by a corresponding song by Polina Gagarina. First, my daughter heard “Cuckoo” in her performance: this was just the period when Sima had just started treatment. In the hospital, she constantly sang this song, and it is about fighting. "There is no more drama" Sima fell in love immediately after being discharged. My daughter finished undergoing treatment, and the title of the song again strongly echoed a period in the life of our family, ”shared Sergei, Seraphima's dad.

Since April 2008, the Konstantin Khabensky Charitable Foundation has been doing everything possible to ensure that children with brain tumors receive all the necessary medical care on time and return to full life as soon as possible. During this time, 2,800 wards received targeted assistance. The Foundation pays for diagnostics and treatment of children, conducts information work with parents, through courses and trainings improves the qualifications of doctors, helps equip specialized departments of Russian medical institutions, and also organizes rehabilitation programs.

In an interview with Vladimir Pozner, Konstantin Khabensky explained why he decided to do charity work: “It was a very simple thing that prompted me to do this. Eleven years ago, my family was in trouble. Nastya, my wife, was diagnosed with brain oncology. We had two operations, we moved to America to continue treatment. And in order to distract her from this story, I suggested that she engage in helping others - children with the same disease. And she started. We started together, then she was gone, and I realized that it’s worthless for us if it’s a one-day story. ”
