I would like to thank everyone that has donated, so that Mohammed could start his treatment.What an amazing show of support in these last few weeks.The family are so grateful and relieved that the treatment could finally go ahead,due to your kind donations.It was an awful time for them,watching their son deteriorate for weeks,whilst waiting for a decision on whether the Palestinian Authority would fund the treatment.

As soon as the funds were available,Mohammed was transferred to the hospital in Jerusalem for the first treatment.He was kept in so that his condition could be monitored.Once home he had an appointment for a scan and various tests that were needed.This cost $1,200 was paid from this fundraiser.The family are waiting for the results.Mohammed is due to return to the hospital in April for the second treatment

I set the fundraiser to finish on 31st March,thinking by this time we would have had a decision from the Palestinian Authority on funding the rest of his treatment.This has not happened yet, so I hope to extend the fundraiser by another month.We can cover the next 2 treatments if there are no other expenses, but we need a decision on whether the Authority will fund the rest over the year

Mohammed has Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis,a rare type of cancer,that in his case has affected his lungs.His health has deteriorated in these last few months because the hospital in Gaza cannot offer him the treatment he needs.He should have started the new treatment last October,but the Palestinian Authority have not agreed to fund the chemotherapy or transfer him to the Hadassa Medical Center.

Mohammed desperately needs this treatment and without it his prognosis is extremely poor.With treatment the survival rate is 80% in children (Macmillan.org.uk)

The situation is urgent and as each week passes his condition worsens.At this stage of the fundraiser, we need to raise enough funds for him to be transferred to Hadassah and treatment started.We need to raise £600 to make this happen as soon as possible.

Many thanks to the people who have donated already.It is much appreciated by the family of Mohammed

Hello Thomas, Moneygram changed their policy in Feb and now require either passport or driving licence to be able to send money.I do not drive and have never had a passport so was unable to use moneygram any more.Peter is my husband and he has a moneygram account.He is able to send funds to the family of Mohammed. Today we sent funds to pay for his treatment at the beginning of April
