Anatoli needs help to continue treatment!

Anatoli and his mom
Anatoli and his mom

Anatoli is an 8-year old from Ukraine.  He is a quiet boy who loves books and has a vivid imagination.  Last year Anatoli suddenly fell ill.  When local doctors failed to diagnose him, the family took him to Israel for treatment.  Within days of arrival, Anatoli was paralyzed from waist down.  A tumor in his spine was discovered and Anatoli was operated, but he remains paraplegic to this day.  The doctors are administering him chemotherapy to try and shrink the tumor and restore his mobility.  Anatoli is now half way through the treatment, and he needs our support to continue it and get well. 

Here is his story in his own words:

Hello. My name is Anatolii. I am 8 year old.
Several months ago I fell ill seriously, and I don't feel my legs right now. In spite of all the efforts of my family to find a specialist who could diagnose and help me in Ukraine, we failed.
After having done the MRI check in Ukraine we went to Israel to be diagnosed in a proper way and I undergone the operation immediately, because according to MRI there was a tumor in the spine area.
In Ukraine the doctors couldn't say what kind of tumor I have. So, we stayed in Israel. I was diagnosed with sarcoma and now I have being treated with chemotherapy which is very hard on me.
My mother and father are also in Israel with me doing everything they can to save my life, but we are short of money and resources.
I'm asking you kindly to help me and to keep me alive.
I am dreaming about walking again, doing hiking and playing football with my little brother.
