Kleo's battle

Hello, This all started12/31/2016.
Our family Oliks(father), Gloria (mother) KLEO 12y.o., Paolo 9y.o. was celebrating the end of the year and the start of the new year. We were all happy and looking forward to 2017 with a new baby on the way. Kleo named  her already, baby sister Eva.
Kleo was having a runny nose for a month now, lost a tooth and taking antibiotic for sinus infection. Little did we know a monster was growing inside his face.  1/20/2017 Kleo had his first CT scan which revealed a suspicious mass. Biopsy was done on 1/23/2017, came back malignant rigt maxillary sinus tumor. This is all taking place in Albania. Doctors suggested he goes outside the country to take care of this to a more specialized clinic. We flew to Italy stayed there for a week. Kleo's right cheek was getting larger by the minute. With a lot of help from our church and our relative we were able to fly to USA where Kleo was diagnosed with a stage III Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma . his condition is critical. Dr at MOTT's children hospital in Michigan started Chemo right away. I am Kleo's mother and we are trying to raise money to help our family with medical expenses. It would mean somuch to our family. We would never be able to repay anybody for any donation but words can not descibe the diference your help will make for our family. Many many thanks to everyone. Lots of prayers, miracles happen every day :)
