Parents letter (01.14.2012)
Dear donors, my son was born on June 2, 2000 as a healthy and sweet boy. On September 17, 2012 we went to the doctor with complaints of pain in his leg above the knee. We were diagnosed with "Ewing's sarcoma" under question. By the result of the biopsy diagnosis has not been confirmed and we returned to the "healthy" way of life. After two weeks the leg at the place of the biopsy have become inflated. We approached a doctor again — this time tests have shown pathological fracture. Soft tissue after the surgery was taken for the analysis and we were diagnosed with a malignant tumor — osteogenic sarcoma. This kind of illness is difficult to treat. From December 31 my son has started a course of chemotherapy. In order to soften the side effects we need the drug «Methotrexate». Unfortunately, this drug is very expensive and we can not afford it. We ask you to help us in providing financial assiastance in buying this medicine for my son.
