Left kidney tumor - neuroblastoma

Started: 29 November 2019
Ends: 19 February 2020

Your son suffers from neuroblastoma. A lethal disease, the worst filth that can happen to a child”. I heard the diagnosis for my child and I felt as I was hit with a stick right into my face. My heart wanted to jump out of my chest, I could’t breath. No longer that 2 months before, Olaf was just an ordinary two-and-a-half –year old tot, who liked larking and discovering curiosities of the surrounding world. Today, I need to save him at all costs, and reedem him from the sentence of death by paying nearly one milion zloty for the treatment that is not refunded by the national health system.

You see the small, bald heads who lost their hair due to ongoing chemotheraphy. You see the bundle of cables and lines surrounding the child. You can hear crying, screaming,whimpering. You can feel the pain, fear and disbelief. You want to run away from here right away and never come back. But you know that you are going to stay here for many long months. Welcome to children oncology department. The department that should never be existing.

The time stops here… and the little heros…so little that they cannot even reach the light switch must struggle a cruel fight for life.We have been here since 21st October 2019. With no break. When earlier that time, I went to see a GP with my weakened son, I  hardly realized such a turn of cases. The results of ultrasound left no doubts. There was a 10 centemeter tumour on the kidney. Later, the biopsy just proved the worst – neuroblastoma. A cruel type of a cancer which always targets those little ones and the weakest ones, children…

Now Olaf is half way through chemotheraphy. He has finished 4 cycles and there are still 4 more waiting for him. There is no hair on his little head. This is the price for lighting with this merciless disease. It is an usual view here in this department. Those who have arrived not long ago still can be proud of their lush hair. The weterans have already forgotten about their hair. We support each other here. We all are in the same war but each of us fights a separate battle. All want to win, all want to survive… Not all will manage…

When the chemotherapy is over, Olaf will undergo a surgery of tumor resection. Next, he will receive stem cells, then another superstrong chemotheraphy. Finally, he will undergo the immunotherapy. Unfortunatelly, the costs of it are enourmously high and are not refunded even when it comes to children. The costs – nearly milion zloty. This sum is too high for us. It is out of reach. It does not let us sleep at night. The thought that a child’s life depends on so much money is unbearable. I have no choice but to ask you, all dear ones, ask you for help… That is the only way I can save my baby boy…

Olaf Malik

Olaf does not understand this situation. Why he cannot sleep in his own bed, why he cannot go outside…Why there is a tube inside his nose…What for all those plasters and cables? I hope that after many years he will manage to forget what he is going through now. And the painful memories will remain only in the pictures. The pictures I show you, show the life of my child now. Only with your help I can fight not to let this short life finish….
