Cannot write this without crying. A Belorussian boy named Tikhon is about to turn 2 in August. Half of his life he spent in the hospital in Minsk going through 6 blocks of an intensive chemotherapy because of the cancerous tumor that destroyed the ethmoid bonetumor. He also developed meningoencephalitis as the turmor destroyed the ethmoid bone. As the result a bifrontal craniotomy and a plastic surgery of cranial fossa was performed on him in the Department of Neurosurgery for children of the Emergency Hospital in Minsk. A month ago, he was diagnosed sensorineural hearing loss, 4th degree (he does not hear or speak at all) as a result of meningoencephalitis. Belarussian doctors cannot do anything about it. In dispare, Tikhon's mother went to Warsaw to seek another medical advise. Professor Skarzynski from Warsaw agreed to operate Tikhon to enable him to hear his Mother's voice again and learn to speak. If the operation is not performed immediately he will never be able to hear or speak in his entire life (this is due to the obliteration of his cochlea which is developing very fast). The cost of the operation on both ears is 53 000 euro. Tikhon's was able to raise half of this amount. I am turning to all my friends, friends of my friends and all people on facebook who will read this. HELP Tikhon! Any amount of help can make a difference in his life. Or, even if you cannot help yourself, share it with your friends. Together we can change this boy's life. You can also wire money directly to the hospital. For the wire instructions please email me at helptikhon@gmail.com.
