Dear friends, thank you for your continuous support!

We are proud to announce that Help Children with Cancer Access Treatment was selected as Project of the Month by GlobalGiving! It will be hosted on the GlobalGiving’s homepage for one month and we hope that it will raise additional attention to the needs of children that we are serving.

We have previously written about Elyor, 1 year old boy from Uzbekistan.  Thanks to your support, Elyor has finished radiation therapy in Germany in the beginning of May, but will need to travel back for checkups every 4-6 weeks. Last year, the total cost of treatment and travel easily exceeded family’s entire earnings. Your support will alleviate the family’s financial burden and help ensure that Elyor gets uninterrupted treatment.

Amir, a 4-year-old from Russia, is another patient with the similar diagnosis. In 2011, he had retinoblastoma surgery at the same clinic in Essen. Unfortunately, his right eye was removed but doctors were able to save Amir’s left eye. His mom works as a system administrator at education center for disabled children and makes about $250 a month, whereas each trip to Germany costs them up to 3,500 Euro. They need to frequently travel to Germany to make sure the disease is not progressing.

We hope that you continue supporting children like Elyor and Amir. Unfortunately, there is no adequate medical infrastructure to treat them at home. Our project aims to fill this gap and we are truly grateful for your ongoing support!
