It would be hard to even think that this amazing white-haired boy could not see the world and the colors he donated.
Let's stop for a moment. Let's try to close our eyes so that only darkness remains in them and so they can live for at least one day ...
And then the greatest gratitude floods in, even for a little support, a meaningful sacrifice that helped the little boy, then still a baby, regain the light of his eyes. Gratitude for the most meticulous, responsible work of the medics, their golden hearts and hands that have bestowed the gift of sight to many children.
Today, Adrius is still continuing his treatment in the pediatric clinics in Lausanne, Switzerland, and is looking forward to meeting with his beloved doctor, Prof. Francis Munier.
The boy recovers so successfully that all we have to do is rejoice and accompany his onslaught into light, color, a childhood illuminated by fairy tales and faith.
The greatest value is the life donated to him by Adrius' parents.
Another of the greatest values and gifts of life for Adri, though he does not yet understand it, has become the compassion of many people, giving the little boy a chance to see and be healed.

New year and new hope from the lips of Martynas' mother, who is being treated at the Swiss clinic.

"Hello, We entered the New Year with the same hope of congratulations. Maybe finally, at least this year, to control those unfortunate tumors that still don’t stop growing.
We start the new year not only with old hopes. We finally released an old binder for the rest we earned, which no longer holds copies of our traveler's checks. That’s, all 46 traveler's checks that have been covered by people of good will since August 2018. We hope that the new binder will be the last one we will fill, although the end of the treatment is not yet seen. The Swiss doctors are also completely filling out their binder, with Martin’s treatment notes. Only so far I have not paid attention, they have already filled the raised document tray.
The last visit to Switzerland went smoothly. After the examination, it was not established that Martyn had received a chemical injection in the eye. Doctors said the tumors were no longer active, so no treatment was given. It would be gratifying if not for the feeling of Deja vu that this was already the case. Unfortunately, I'm just a mom who has only one way out - to listen to the doctor's instructions.
Martyn feels good. It was very much looking forward to the holidays, Santa Claus and New Year’s fireworks. We wish everyone a better start to the New Year!
We would like to thank everyone who does not forget us and watches Martynas' journey towards congratulations! Thank you!
Kiss everyone from Martynas!
Thank you to each of you for giving Marty a chance to master the Swiss clinics, only we can unite the greatest and most wonderful miracles for children.
Martynai, you and your family are the strongest, we even all hold fists so that it would not be a feeling of moaning, and the long-awaited light

We can only help. Everything else Martin and his parents have to overcome on their own - endure exhausting journeys, waiting hours that turn into days, years, painful treatments and most importantly - not to lose hope. After all, even bad things have an end.
Martin, like no child in care before, needs special perseverance and support. The boy's illness reluctantly gives up. However, it is reassuring that Martin is being treated by the best, most experienced specialists in pediatric clinics in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Those who follow the story of Martin's treatment probably do not even need to be reminded that the boy heals from a rare oncological disease of the eye malignancy (retinoblastoma) with the help of good people.
We share the messages of Martynas' mother Milda's latest travels, which we always look forward to with impatience and hope:
This time I will describe two trips that took place at once. We had to travel in two weeks in August. There was no place in the clinic, so we received the visit only after three weeks instead of two.
After the inspection, I learned that no activity was found at that time. To insure, doctors injected a needle, a repeated dose of the chemistry, directly into the eye. The next visit was scheduled for a month later.
The last visit went smoothly. The flights were on time, everywhere we guessed, as we had planned. We were last in line at the operating room that day. We had a scheduled time to be in the hospital. But Martin was so eager to travel to the doctor that we ended up in the hospital almost an hour earlier. And the nurse was happy to see us. He said he would have called me soon because Martin’s time was brought forward by an hour.
As always, leaving my child on the operating table, I sat counting the minutes. 10 min ... 20 min ... 30 min ... 40 min ... I don't remember or have I mentioned that if the operation lasts 20 minutes, the knowledge is usually good, if it lasts longer, it is bad. In my mind, I was already preparing for a worse scenario, but I kept trying to get rid of them by nervously surfing the phone. Suddenly Professor Munier approached me and said good news. I even melted .. It turns out the professor took a meeting with another child's parents. He probably didn’t realize how nervous it cost me for those 20 extra minutes. Most importantly at this time, no new tumors were found and no treatment was applied.
The next visit is scheduled for five weeks.
Martynas himself felt good during this whole period, he enjoyed the summer with his grandmother in the homestead, where he found a "little snake" (a small snake, i.e. a 0.5 cm worm) in an apple. He mentioned the first of September in kindergarten, visited the cinema for the first time, and really enjoyed jumping on inflatable trampolines.
I wanted to give extra thanks to all the indifferent people who have contributed and continue to contribute to the financing of our trips to Switzerland. With every bad news, our final treatment date is extended by two years, and possibly longer, due to a complex treatment history. Thank you all, again! ”

I carefully take the baby in his arms, afraid to get caught in the wires protruding from his clothes. They are used to give the boy drip chemotherapy.
Gustukas clings firmly to my finger and doesn’t release him the whole time I hold the boy in his arms. The baby catches every word spoken and rewards a wide smile. It is important for a boy to touch and hear, because that is the only way he can communicate with the person who touches and talks to him today.
Gustukas does not yet understand that his world is dark, that without sounds and touch there is a world that can be seen. The baby does not know that thanks to the help of kind-hearted people, he can shine in different colors.
I believe that a miracle will definitely happen and the day will come when Gustas will see his mother and father’s loving eyes and all the colors of the wonderful world.
I believe because one miracle has already happened. In less than a week, we managed to collect 73,542.34 euros for Gusto's treatment.
As a result of the baby 's health of just 3 months, many kind - hearted people united, sending sincere wishes and sacrificing the boy for a rare disease (eye malignancy - retinoblastoma) for travel and nursing in Lausanne clinics in Switzerland.
The duration of treatment for retinoblastoma is usually about two years, in rare cases a little longer. About 30,000 euros have to be spent on one-year treatment trips, accommodation, transport and nursing care.
Therefore, we are very grateful to the people of good will who do not remain indifferent in helping us not to lose hope and faith that all will be well in such difficult moments of life.

Dear Friends,

Denis is a wonderful boy (4 years old) who looks at the world with loving eyes. Today he can still embrace his mother, father and newborn brother. Denis and his family currently live in the Netherlands.
A menacing disease - Ewing's sarcoma (a malignant tumor of the bones) has sunk into the world of a little boy, trying to take away the opportunity to hug his loving family, play, touch, get to know him.
Denis has been treated at a Dutch children’s hospital for half a year now. The boy underwent strong chemotherapy. However, the medical verdict is ruthless. In order to save the boy's life, it is suggested to amputate the child's hand, in which an angry entity resides.
It would be hard to imagine the family’s immeasurable pain, anxiety about a son’s health and life.
Deck’s family appeals to kind-hearted people and asks for help to save their boy’s hand.
Austrian doctors, after assessing the boy's state of health and reviewing the treatment documents, agreed to perform an operation to save the child's hand. The operation is scheduled for March. at the beginning. We have little time.
The amount required for the operation is 30 thousand. eur.
Part of the amount of 10 thousand. already donated by good people.
Everything seems to be at hand, because more than once the goodness of our people has saved the lives and health of many children.
Because where one cannot, we can all be together!

Donations to the Deck operation can be made into accounts
