In summer of this year my son Yuriy began to feel unwell. At first we did not attach any importance to this. He wrote off the nausea for poor-quality food, weakness for being tired, weight loss for an active lifestyle. When we turned to the doctors in July, it still took quite a long time before Yuriy was finally diagnosed in November. My dear son has been diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer of the 4th degree, with metastases in the liver.
In recent weeks, Yuriy has undergone several types of chemotherapy, but frankly he needs more than the doctors here can give him..
Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) is a molecular therapy (also called radioisotope therapy) used to treat metastasized neuroendocrine tumours.
When injected into the patient’s bloodstream, this radiopeptide travels to and binds to neuroendocrine tumor cells, delivering a high dose of radiation to the cancer.
We believe in people’s kindness. Together, we can make a miracle happen!
Any money donated which is not used to fund Yuriy treatment will be donated to cancer research charities.
