Little Baby Yaya Has Eye Cancer

Little cousin Yaya Kanyi (12 months) has cancer in the left eyeball and was diagnosed with RETINO BLASTOMA. His parents had to get to Dakar, Senegal, for the treatment, in order to avoid removing his eye. «We spent the whole of July - from the 2nd to 28th in Dakar, Senegal. It was very expensive for us. But, luckily we had excellent treatment, and the Doctors are now asking of us to be trekking back there, every month for the next six months, in order to monitor the right eye, and keep it safe. We went back in August 20th 2017 and saw the Doctors on 21st, and return the next day, for lodging alone is very expensive. We are scheduled to return two Sundays from now, that is 17th September 2017, to see the Doctors on Monday 18th September 2017, and I am broke. Even my fare to and fro, with my wife, is a problem for now. I am kindly asking of you to help us help our beloved child.»

I want to help my uncle & family to get through this. Uncle is a hardworking and loving man who is trying his best to make everyone around him smile. He is a dedicated father for his four small children and a good husband for his wife. Everything helps, even the smallest amount. Please help us, so that baby Yaya can have a brighter future ahead of him. Gambia is now free, happy and blossoming! (..and just for the record: my baby cousin is named after his great grandfather, not the former president :-)) Thank you! <3
