My name is Tudor & I'm 11months old.Until 2mths ago my life was perfect!After that,my parents found out that I was born with Bilateral Retinoblastoma.This is a cancer that starts in the retina.Rb1 mutation is present in all the cells of my body,including all of the cells of both retinas.I live with the risk of developing numerous forms of cancer.Right now my parents are struggling to live with me in Paris,where I started a chemotherapy treatment but this disease got my eyes, now I am blind.Doctors say by the end of this month enucleation of both eyes will happen.Enucleation is surgery, removal of eyes.Doctors in my country(Romania) are to be guilty for this crime!When I was only 3mths old,my mom took me to a dr who said that I am perfectly healthy!More than that he said to my mom to come back at the age of 1 because I was to small??If my parents wouldn't notice leukokoria and taken me to Paris,by the age of 1 I'd be dead.I am a very very strong little man and most important I am very happy!I want to stay happy!I need to go to Australia for better treatment,better life.Australia has the best blind schools in the world,there I'll learn how to manage this abis.They have a laser technology which helps blind children like me to move around.They'll also teach me how to use a PC and how to read & more&more important skills that will help me in this wild journey i didn't ask to begin.It's very important to start ASAP, now as an infant!The big problem is that it's very hard for my family to access a visa for Australia.My mom is 23, my dad is29. It's basically impossible for us to work for a living right now.We need help to access a visa Au and start a new life there,to pay the blind school,treatment,I need to go to a hospital every week for blood test,it's very important to detect early,many cancers which stroke me everyday!I won't go gentle into that good night!I will rage against the dying of the light!
P.S. I start using the potty when I was 5mths old! :-D

Tudor should have been our Godson in Romania, but soon after him, God blessed us with a well wanted baby girl, therefore we couldn't travel to meet him. However, he is like a Godson for us and like a brother for our Emma. Let's help him to go to Australia to have a normal life.
