Luca's Medulloblastoma - Fight for Life

I am raising money to help my cousin's 4-year-old child: Luca Ivanov living in Botosani, Romania who is fighting and was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma

Medulloblastoma is a cancerous tumor—also called cerebellar primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET)—that starts in the region of the brain at the base of the skull, called the posterior fossa. These tumors tend to spread to other parts of the brain and to the spinal cord.

So far, Luca had a brain surgery for the tumor removal and cerebrospinal fluid removal and another one for a lung complication (Pneumothorax).


Unfortunately, the doctors discovered the tumor has spread to his spinal cord, therefore, he needs to start radiation and chemotherapy.

Luca already had one chemotherapy session and on the 10th of September 2018,  he is scheduled to start the radiation therapy In Bucharest, Romania (București, Romania).

Here below are the hospitals he was and he is treated at:

At the moment Luca and his mother are in the Bucharest hospital.
So far, their expenses were over 5000 Euros.

If you are willing to help, any little donation will be helpful for the family since they are financially struggling to keep up with all the medical expenses and bills, the traveling expenses and medication.

Thank you very much for your help!
