Doctors say Alexander Fedortchev has about a 50-50 chance of surviving. And that’s the good news. The bad news is that he needs aggressive treatment for non-Hodgkin lymphoma, which he was diagnosed with a little over a month ago. If he doesn’t get the treatment — and soon — his chances of survival decrease each day. But to get the treatment, he’ll need about $1 million. That sort of money doesn’t come easy to anybody, let alone an uninsured Russian immigrant whose monetary mainstay usually revolves around performing acrobatic acts for a variety of circuses, which has included Cirque du Soleil.

In a statement released Friday afternoon, one of the two Costa Mesa teens rescued from a hike gone wrong in Trabuco Canyon thanked the hundreds who staged the massive search for the pair and said he looked forward to seeing for himself that his hiking partner was recovering.
