=====================================

Nikita Dudkin’s mother is asking for your help:

Our little Nikita is two years old. His diagnosis is terrible – retinoblastoma. Nikita passed treatment in Hadassa clinic in Israel. Since March 2013 doctors are trying to save his vision. The first treatment stage included six chemotherapy courses, which unfortunately did not bring the desired outcome, and the aggressive tumor continued growing. Following the examination, we were offered to continue treatment with radiation. The prognosis of the boy being cured with such treatment is 80%. For five and a half weeks, Nikita received radiation treatment with anesthesia every day.

Please help with raising money for the treatment of my son in Swiss Clinic in Lausanne, Hospital Ophtalmique Jules-Gonin.

Recently our financial situation is becoming even tenser. And our boy needs further treatment. Our family feels lost. It is a very difficult period for us. I am asking you to help us save our little boy! Tears, sleepless nights, ongoing overwhelming fear for his life – this is all a price we pay for this little sweetheart to further bring joy to our lives, being able to see this world with his own eyes. I would give everything for his eyes to see the sun, the sky, the green leaves on the trees, for my boy to be full of joy and health. I am sure that there are people who will be able to understand my feelings and help! Since March 2013, doctors are fighting to save the boy’s vision. The first stage of treatment included 6 chemo courses, then radiation, when for 30 days the boy under anesthesia received a daily dose of radiation. Though, this treatment did not prove to be successful. The tumor is very aggressive. Now we have been offered to try intra-arterial chemotherapy. This treatment is very expensive, we were given an invoice for 74,800 francs ($84,524). And the treatment may in no way be interrupted as it leads to irreversible consequences. So the situation is critical!

Little Nikita has been still struggling for his life and we all can give him a hand!

The amount of money that needs to be collected before March 2016, as of today (09.10.2015) is 28,000 USD. Please support little Nikita!

The family lives in the town of Melitopol.
