Rhimpo's Leukemia Treatment

Rhimpo Yolmo is an 11 year old Nepali boy who is sick with leukemia. We met three years ago when I was volunteering at his family's home for orphans and abandoned children, and now he needs help. Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world. Access to medical facilities is extremely limited, and what is available is near impossible to afford. Rhimpo now has to undergo chemotherapy in Kathmandu, 8 hours by bus from his home.  A single day's treatment can cost over $300, which is money his family does not have. Rhimpo's family needs money to pay for his medical expenses as quickly as possible.
