Visal is a beautiful smart Cambodian boy who just turned 10 years old a couple of days ago.
Unfortunatley it was the same day he got diagnosed with AML -acute myelogenous leukemia, a more rare and agressive form of cancer of the myeloid line of blood cells.
Visal grew up in Cambodia Siem Reap at the Hope & Life Foundation under the Venereble (monk) Somnieng Hoeurn (pictured below). He was left there in care when he was only 5 months old as his mother was to poor and unable to take care him.
As there are no chemotheraphy treatments available in Cambodia for AML - Ven Somnieng has taken him to Bangkok where Visal will start chemotherapy, stage 1 for one month, and stage 2 for 4-5 months. During this time Visal is required to stay in the hospital. This will be a painful and long enduring journey for him.
We are trying to raise 8,000 USD to cover for Visals 4-6 months chemotherapy treatments at Chulanongkorn Hospital and stay in Bangkok and for his going back after to Siem Reap for recovery.
All the money collected will be given to the Hope & Life Foundation that is organizing the treatements in Chulalongkorn Hospital and has had Visal in their care since he was 5 months old.
I will do a weekly update on his treament progress and how he is doing together with some photos.
Any smallest donation will go a long way!
please keep him in your prayers.
