Denis Urucu, a 12 year old boy born to a poor family in a small village in Romania, has been diagnosed with cervical spine cancer on September 11, 2013. He has had surgery in Bucharest, Romania but the doctors were able to remove only 70 percent of the tumor due to the fact that 30 percent of it had spread into the nervous system. Although released from the hospital on September 20th, his condition continued to worsen. By October 19, 2013 fluid had built up in his brain causing him to vomit all that he ate and slip in and out of consciousness. He was immediately rushed to the hospital where a procedure was done to remove the fluid build-up in his brain. Unfortunately, doctors in Romania are not equipped to further operate on his tumor without killing him.

His parents have made arrangements with a neurosurgeon in Hannover, Germany, by the name of Dr. Helmut Bertalanffy, who has the possibility of improving his condition significantly. However, the hospital requires that the parents have 72,000 Dollars in their bank account before they begin treating Denis. Miraculously, about 59,000 Dollars have already been gathered in Europe*! His situation CAN be improved and Denis can once again enjoy life with your help. Every day that passes is a struggle for Dennis to stay alive. You have a chance to change Denis’ life forever! I am begging you not to let this opportunity pass you by!

*The monetary goal differs from that stated in the video due to the fact that 9,000 Dollars more have been raised in Europe in the meantime.
