Josh, 3 years old. Kind, intelligent, open and friendly boy. My only baby , gifted to me by God .
Josh was so excited to Start Preschool in september but unfortunately, his plans had to go on hold for now.
In May 2016 Josh was diagnosed with brain cancer. Stage 3 medulloblastoma.
In June 2016 surgeons partially removed the tumour. After that, radiotherapy. Next, four rounds of chemo. All that took a year. Control MRI in July 2017 and a low blow - the tumour is growing,
The tumour is in a very remote place and fits tightly to the brainstem. Repeated surgery has been recommended but is very dangerous.
We are not giving up hope of a safer treatment. Abroad, there are doctors who can perform a procedure called Proton Beam Therapy.
Unfortunately, in United Kingdom there is no Proton Beam Therapy treatment specifically for brain tumors. Will be available in the UK until 2018. Josh's case is apparently very rare for United Kingdom so there is a shortage of advice and limited treatment options here.
We are looking for a leading europeane proton therapy centre in Czech Republic or Germany.
Proton beam therapy is a different type of radiotherapy. It uses a high energy beam of protons rather than high energy X-rays to deliver a dose of radiotherapy for patients with cancer. It works best on some very rare cancers including tumours affecting the base of skull or the spine.
We can’t getting Abroad treatment without your help …. Our family does all necessary things to find and earn money for Josh’s treatment but it is not enough
We are very grateful for any contributions!!
Thank you very much for reading this page ….
