Please donate for our little brother – Amir Karachurin! He is only 11!
My brother has ALL – Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia – a type of cancer disease that is characterized by the surfeit of white blood cells, called lymphocytes, in the bone marrow.
Currently Amir is being treated in RDKB – Russian Hospital for children, based in Moscow. He cannot walk or seat because these cancerous cells caused osteoporosis (bones became soft and nerves became jammed, making every move painful).
Amir’s condition is very hard right now because even the best Russian doctors have no idea about the right treatment for the child. The problem started with the fact that the whole treatment, which was based on incorporating enormous doses of chemotherapy, has not given us any progress. Unfortunately, chemotherapy, which was supposed to kill cancerous cells, instead worsened the condition by intoxicating the organism, generating convulsions. That drove doctors to stop the treatment and shift Amir to ICU on previous weekends (09/17/2016-09/18/2016). Furthermore, Amir is not qualified for bone marrow transplant because he is not in a full remission (no presence of bad cells), and even the best Russian doctors are completely puzzled by Amir’s case…
This brings us to necessity to collaborate and find a hospital in Germany, which can help us to find the treatment pattern and accept my brother as a patient. Our government doesn’t cover such treatment in terms of money and that is why we are in a desperate search for any help!
Very rough estimation of treatment cost at this point is around ~140-170 K USD.
I do not want to lose my amazing brother! The most wonderful thing is that there are a lot of us! I mean that it is much easier for 5000 people to donate $5 (maybe you will not go to the cafe once in this month, etc) than for 1 person to earn $25000 in month.
So, we ask you for help, which will not have substantial affects on your life, but to me it will give a chance to enjoy life with my wonderful little brother!
I will be unbelievably thankful for any donations, now matter how tiny they are, because every single donation brings us closer to my brother's recovery!
