There is nothing more devastating to a mother than to see your child suffer from a serious disease. For every mother who has heard these words “Your child has serious illness”, it is a moment frozen in time and life-changing event. I experienced one such frozen moment on 10/01/2014.
I made my routine phone call home in the morning. My brother picked up the phone. He clearly seemed to have something urgent- something very important to say. After a few minutes of muttering, after I had promised that I would not tell mum and dad, he told me the news. The news that made me freeze. My sister’s one and only son was diagnosed with Severe Aplastic Anaemia- a rare type of blood disorder where a child needs urgent Bone Marrow Transplant.
I stood speechless as my eyes welled up in tears. In an instant, the flashbacks of all my nephew's childhood memories came to me. My nephew was so chubby as a baby and we all loved him dearly. My sister lived two doors away from my parents’ so my nephew grew up in our house mostly.
My sister and her husband moved to Russia in 2011 due to high rise of unemployment in Uzbekistan. As an Uzbekistani my nephew does not qualify for free health care as he is not a Russian citizen. He can not travel back to Uzbekistan as the medicine is not advanced to treat his illness. Please spare a moment to pray for his health and donate to save a life of this 12 year old boy. Any amount is greatly appreciated and valued.
