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.
