"It was only recently that I was dreaming at night about winning at the soccer game that I love so much. How has all my dreams changed to just waning to stay alive ???"
I'm Sasha. I'm 11 years old.
I would like to tell you how I love playing soccer and spending time with my friends. But my life has stopped and all I just want is ... to live!
A year ago I was diagnosed with cancer.
And everything stopped.
Suddenly the ball I love playing with and my friends ... everything changed into a different world. A world of suffering, hospitals, doctors, and one great fear.
I'm scared of dying.
Sometimes the tests and treatments are so painful that I think I'm about to give up.
I told you I love soccer. When I play soccer, I give it my best ... to win. Otherwise, what's the point of playing?
That's how I like it.
So I can play. But now I'm in bed. At the hospital. In so much pain.
But I'm also playing a real field. The field of life. And I have to win.
Not in soccer. I have to win cancer.
I got to beat it.
Mom and Dad love me so much and give me the strength to fight so I fight like a soccer player on the field at the most critical moment !!
I hate cancer. I want to go back to how I was.
go back to the life I knew before cancer came into my life unannounced.
I want to live and stop this suffering.
I heard that some treatment can save my life. I was really happy when I heard it.
Then I heard how much it costs and I got sad again.
I know my parents don't have that money, but they love me so much and want me to live and they will do anything for me.
So here we go. Asking from you.
Please, for me, for my mom who loves me so much and fights for me.
Help us fund this treatment that can save me so that I won't suffer anymore and get off this field playing for my life.
All we need is to score one goal. all of us together!
Will you help me win ?!
