Date of Birth: June 21, 2003. Diagnosis - Eosinophilic granuloma



Nine year old Ivanko is a happy boy that is a joy for his mom and for all the relatives. After Christmas, a terrible disaster happened to this family.  Ivanko complained that his leg hurt at night, and because the pain was unusual his mom took him to the hospital. Ivanko was diagnosed with sarcoma. Everybody was shocked because nobody even suspected this kind of diagnosis.


In February, Ivanko began the treatment in Ivano-Frankivsk Children’s Hospital. Later his mom took him to Kiev where he had a  surgery to remove the tumor from the gluteal bone. After the surgery, Ivan complained of a pain in his spine and the doctors found another tumor there. And again his mom took him to Kiev for another surgery. At present Ivanko is undergoing chemotherapy at the regional hospital. He needs 6 blocks, and the family ran out of money.


We hope that there will be people who will help the boy in this difficult situation. Ivanko is still young and he needs to do so much in life. We are asking you to help this family and give Ivanko a chance to have a healthy future.
