Untill he turned 8, the word “cancer” had been associated for him with an animal that lives in the river or the Cancer Constellation in the sky. But it turned out this word has one more meaning and can be very horrible. A year and a half ago the boy was diagnosed with “orbital rhabdomyosarcoma” – a rare and aggressive tumor. Olezhka bore with fortitude all the treatment stages –tumor removal, chemotherapy and radiation. But in four months – tumor recurrence, and the doctors’ words: “It is impossible to help you in Ukraine”. So Olezhka found himself in Istanbul. The three stages of treatment cost tens of thousands of dollars – unreal amounts for a little family, consisting of a mother and a son. Save Olezhka! Save the mother’s only son!
