Dear Supporter of Boghos,

 

I am Kristina, a very close and old friend of Boghos and I have created this page to raise funds which will help him get through payments of new medication and chemo as well as radio therapy.

 

I've known Boghos for 6 years now and he is probably one of the most loyal and true friends I have.

He helped me settle in Kuwait and Dubai as if it was the most trivial support to provide. His positive spirit and kindness were always there to cheer me up when I needed it.

About 2 years ago, Boghos was diagnosed with cancer. The picture you see here is around the time when it all kicked off slowly.

At first we didn't know what kind, later we found out it was Sarcoma. Just achieving this knowledge was a real struggle and required for him to travel half the world, hear dozens of different opinions and spend endless amounts of hours in the hospitals of Bahrain, Germany, Lebanon, Switzerland and more.

Finally we got to a stage of diagnosis with the 'chemo-cocktail' being mixed and Boghos was able to set-up his first chemo in Dubai.

It could only get better from here, right?

Not quite. Nobody expected for this to go on for months over months, procedure after procedure, and bills over bills combined with Boghos of course no longer being able to work and therefore stay in the UAE.

Boghos is currently in Kuwait and going through another round of chemotherapy. He has lost all his hair and an awful lot of weight. He's very weak now, unable to walk and sometimes unable to speak because of the side effects of his medicine. Yet his positive spirit remains and I am constantly amazed by how he finds all that mental strength and focus throughout. 

He has health insurance in the country, however, a lot of the treatments and medications are not accessible to him without paying the full price.

To support Boghos' financial situation and keep his fighter instinct going by making him feel like he's really not alone, I would like to ask you to donate whichever amount you can bear at this point.

The smallest contribution makes a difference.

 

For those who are interested, I will be sharing regular updates on what milestones we are achieving with this initiative.

 

Thank you all for your support. All of us for Boghos <3
