My younger son Oleksandr is 2 years old.
We are from Ukraine and now live in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam where I work.
On May 21st Oleksandr was diagnosed with brain tumor. The tumor is benign - fortunately, but quite big - a size of a chicken egg. It is also deep in the brain, so it's very complicated to deal with.
Oleksandr has to undergo an urgent surgery in 3-6 weeks. Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and Israel hospitals quotes in range from 60 to 90 thousand dollars. Vietnamese medical insurance is not covering any part of treatment abroad. We need to raise the money at least for the surgery very fast.
Any medical advice, treatment options or doctor contacts would also really help.
