10 years old Alihan
Organized by: Anjela Amilahanova
Dear Fiends, My name is Anjela and we are from Uzbekistan, I heard about your website from my husband's close friend who lives in Chicago. I am very sorry that I mentioned our living country and citizenship wrong, because there are no any choice about my country where are we from. We have a 10 years old son whose name is Alihan and he is a wrestler. Month ago our son had strong pain in his knee and the bone below the knee on the left leg. He started to cry and scream because of strong pain. It was nighttime and next day we took him to the local hospital to check what the problem is. Soon, doctor requested to take him for the Multispiral computer tomography CT for getting more clear information. Later doctor informed as per the results of CT that my son has a Non-osteogenic Fibroma of the Bone and that is probably benign fibroma. We were shocked by the information we got from Doc. Our son was looking to us and asking whether it is dangerous and important but we could not answer him feeling his fear. Doctor informed us that this kind of treatment and surgery is very expensive and our son needs surgery and treatment but we do not have that kind of specialists in our country. He said that we could find this kind of special clinic to take care of treatment in Turkey, Israel, Germany, or in USA. That was the second shock for us because we do not have that kind of possibility and financial status of our family is not enough for the treatment and surgery in foreign countries. We found a clinic in Turkey, which explained to us their conditions as follows: Computer tomography reports shows that the tumor is 85% a benign as it looks. The price just for the surgery is 7500 $ and it is including 3 days of hospitalization, some tests, surgery, histology, some of consumables during the surgery. After the surgery and 3 days of hospitalization, we will have to stay in Turkey minimum for 10 days somewhere in hotel because clinic specialists will make a check-up. Therefore, this price is except the payments for hotels, food during 10 days, flight tickets from Uzbekistan to Turkey and back. This price in only for tha case if the tumor is 100% benign and it will be known just during the surgery when they will send the sample of bone to the pathology. Lord forbid if the result will not be good like malignant tumor or cancerous growth then the terms and prices vary and the price is around 45 000 $ USA dollars. As soon as we heard about this, the life of our family became darkness; we live with the fear every second. Just think what we the parents feel looking at our kid. It is really killing us day by day because of helps situation. Salaries and incomes in our country are much lower than in other foreign countries, our savings is may be enough only for our tickets with my son to go to Tukey and come back. We do not have a house or flat which we could sell. I have a car which I am trying to sell but it is also not enough because very cheap. Our kid, our baby needs help of all you who ever can understand and feel our situation According to an advice of my close friend who lives in Chicago I decided to explain our situation in this website hoping that we could get a help from you. A day-to-day time is ticking away, and trying to kill our hope.I have never been in this situation before so that we do not know how to explain you this situation. Dear friends we just tried to explain what we feel. Thanks a lot to everybody for spending your time to read our problem Nurmuhammet Sincerely.
