Please help save Eniola's life!

My name is Tonye Odogwu and I am a medical student at UTMB, Galveston, TX. I am also a member of a non-profit organization (World Missions Possible, Inc. ) based in Houston, Texas.
I have a 2-year old nephew who has been diagnosed with a rare cancer in his left eye (Rhabdomyosarcoma) and is in desperate need of medical treatment.
It all began in earlier in June, when his parents first noticed some swelling in his left eye and took him to see a doctor, who diagnosed him with a simple eye infection.  After a week without improvement, he was referred
to an Ophthalmologist who ordered a CT scan and a biopsy (performed on 06/12 and 06/15 respectively). The biopsy yielded little useful information and Eni spent another two weeks being referred different doctors,  as his condition was worsened.
It was not until that he ended up at a teaching hospital in Ibandan, Nigeria, that he finally received a diagnosis of Rhabdomyosarcoma.  He was also given a treatment plan of 47 weeks of chemotherapy treatment (started on 7-14-2015), 2 sessions of radiotherapy, and finally surgery after the tumor has hopefully shrunk.
As of this moment, Eni has only received 7 of the 47 chemo treatments, because that is all his family has been able to afford. He is currently hospitalized that the National hospital in Abuja, Nigeria, where he relies on friends and family for daily treatments. However, Eni's condition will surely deteriorate if help does not come soon, because his is fighting a particularly aggressive cancer.
Ideally we would like to raise funds to not only pay for his care, but also transfer him back to the teaching hospital. This is because they are better equipped to provide him with the level of care that he needs.
My family and I will appreciate all donations, no amount if too small. Every dollar will make a difference in Eni's life and give this 2-year old a fighting chance. God bless you as you consider our request.

World Missions Possible (WMP) has investigated this case and has verified all the information to be true.  The organization has pledged to ensure that all donations will be used solely for the purpose of providing Eni with the care he needs. They have agreed to provide proof, as well as updates, on Eni's treatment/progress if requested.
