Meet the child
Jan is fighting glioblastoma. The disease manifested itself in the february, 2020 when the parents of a cheerful 9-years old Jan paid attention to the number the atypical symptoms: lethargy, headaches, vomiting. Unfortunately, brain tumor was diagnosed. Surgical removal of the tumor was performed urgently in the Belarussian Research Center for Pediatric Oncology, Hematology and Immunology, Borovlyany. The world of a 9-year-old boy, full of bright colors and promising plans narrowed to the size of a hospital ward, filled with fear and pain.

The tumor belongs to the formations of a high degree of malignancy, is able to grow quickly and aggressively destroying healthy brain tissue. The treatment is complex, includes in addition to surgical treatment and drugs, radiation therapy. Today, the child’s body is heavily weakened, complete blood count is deteriorating constantly. Given the small age of the child, it is vitally important to choose the optimal method of radiation therapy. High aiming accuracy of the beam during proton therapy delivers higher targeted doses of radiation directly to affect the tumor minimizing radiation exposure to nearby healthy tissue which is especially important in the treatment of head tumors at children. And this means the opportunity to make the treatment as sparing as possible for small patients, significantly reduce the risks of side effects and avoid serious consequences and further problems in the development of the child.

Today, proton beam therapy is not available in the Republic of Belarus. Specialists of the Dr. Berezin Medical Center, St. Petersburg, Russia, have accepted the kid for treatment upon a letter of guarantee from the foundation. The course of therapy has begun.

Dear benefactors, thank you for your help to save Jan's life!
Together we make a difference!
