PLEASE, HELP SLAV!
important note: This gofundme page was created to support Slav's treatment and is not showing actual balance and includes funds that were already spent on his treatment last year. Thus we are still fundraising for his oxygen chamber. Thank you for your help and support.
Slav has survived the onslaught of aggressive type stage IV cancer. Although his MRI is still not completely clear and purchasing the oxygen chamber would help him to RECOVER, CATCH UP ON LIFE, and GET OUT OF THIS INCREDIBLY EXHAUSTING CYCLE OF BEING CONSTANTLY ON THE GO FOR MEDICAL PURPOSES -commuting to the oxygen chamber 3-5 times a week.
Please help us to buy the chamber so Slav can get its healing benefits at home, at its full potential. We cannot achieve this without your help. This equipment is not cheap but we cannot put a price on Slav's life.
We hope to be able to purchase the hyperbaric chamber before Christmas.
Kindly consider a donation and spreading our appeal.

HISTORY: Our Slav is a spunky 14-year old always smiling boy, youngest of 3, who was diagnosed in January 2018 with a rare type of cancer, called Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, stage IV. The cancer started in his left foot but spread (metastasized) to all bigger bones and damaged his spine. Slav went trough very harsh 27 weeks of chemotherapy treatment between January and July 2018. There is no sarcoma specialist in Ireland and so we sought help and advice in the UK and USA on our own. We also contacted many oncologists in writing around the world. No stone was left unturned. Now, at the end of this year, Slav is in a better position, but oncologists are still not very optimistic. The risk of cancer coming back is very high. A lot of other children who were in a similar situation are sadly not here anymore though some of them had initially a better prognosis. Slav's fight can look like a small miracle; however, it is far from being over. Slav is suffering not only from injuries caused by the disease but also from the side effects of chemotherapy. We are doing everything possible to help his body to recover and keep this miracle going. We started using special natural supplements targeting cancer pathways along with the hyperbaric oxygen therapy over a year ago. Now, we would like to make a life for Slav easier and to purchase the hyperbaric oxygen chamber for home.
This gofundme page was created to support Slav's treatment and is not showing actual balance and includes funds that were already spent on his treatment last year. This was causing confusion to people and thus we decided to keep fundraiser for the oxygen chamber separate, here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/oxygen-for-slav
We have raised 10k so far from 70k needed (8th November 2019) for the oxygen chamber, any small donation would be greatly appreciated.
