Zh V Friske was a popular singer, TV presenter, and actress who died of an inoperable brain tumour. During a charity marathon on Pervy Kanal TV, she helped to raise about 70 million Roubles (8.06 million Renminbi. 82.47 million INR. 1.3 million USD. 1.59 million CAD. 1.68 million AUD. 1.15 million Euros. 820,000 UK Pounds) to treat paediatric cancer patients; the event as a whole attracted public attention to the problems of cancer patients. Her bravery in facing her disease led to the media calling her  “a symbol of courage and a folk hero,  an example of decent socially valuable behavior in a popular creative person in tragic circumstances due to impending premature departure from life”. 

The next time that you’re at services, light a candle for Zhanna Vladimirovna… have Pannikhida said for her… we’re Christians, that’s what we do. Yes… she was a “pop star”… it proves that all callings call be blessed by God (fie on all “religious” enthusiasts and hobbyists).
