Thank you for supporting Elyor Babaev from Uzbekistan. Elyor has retinoblastoma, an eye cancer. This type of disease is not treated in Uzbekistan so family had to look for medical care abroad. Elyor has been treated at the Children's Oncology Center in Essen, Germany.
As of October 2012, Elyor has finished six blocks of chemotherapy and went home to Uzbekistan to recover. It is unclear at the moment whether he will need another therapy. Doctors will want to see Elyor back to Germany every 4 - 6 weeks for checkup. The overall time for recovery and checkup may take up to 2 years. Unfortunately, Uzbekistan has no medical facilities or personnel to monitor Elyor's health. His parents, of course, are committed to do everything possible to save their little son. Each trip to Germany and outpatient treatment will cost them a lot. We will be assisting Elyor and his family throughout this period and will greatly rely on your continuous support!
