I don’t personally know this kid but he’s a family friend and it would mean the world to my family and especially his if you could help out somehow. I’ve seen Tumblr do some amazing things when it comes to cases like this and it’d be great if y’all could work your magic again. Anything helps. Thank you.
Wadi Shaheen’s family and friends are raising money to help him go to Germany and get treatment for his Rhabdomysarcoma Cancer . Please help Wadi Shaheen is an amazing 8 year old boy. When he just turned 5 years old he was diagnosed with Alveolar Rhabdomysarcoma Stage 4 cancer. It all started with a tumor on his left calf. It metastasized to his bone marrow, left femur and other parts in his body. He went under two years and a half of traditional cancer treatment which included: tumor surgery, lots of chemo and radiation. After the long battle lasted he was only cancer free for one year .Unfortunately on his last check up( June 2013) a mass was found in between his right lung and ribs. Due to the nature of this aggressive type of cancer traditional treatment does not provide to much hope. Only to prolong his life for another year. Doctors estimated a short period of time of 6 months left to live if not treated. Wadi’s parents refused to believe that there is no hope therefore, they have been searching and praying for other alternative treatments .One that is less harmful but more successful. Wadi has been accepted to be treated in Dr Herzog’s Fachklinic in Germany. A recognized and professional cancer clinic. The cost of the treatment is estimated to be $40,000. Wadi is in need of starting his treatment soon.The more it waits, the bigger the tumors gets and the faster the disease spreads. Making it even harder to treat. Please help this boy to make it to Germany and get the help he needs. As long as there is life there’s hope. God has the last word.
