Rhenako's fight against Cancer.

My cousin Rhenako fractured his humerus in March, but May 31st is where it all started. His mom suddenly noticed the swelling of her son's humerus and when she went to the doctors, they said "mommy don't worry, it's just a soft tissue sweelling due to the fractured arm and it will go down". Since she did not know better she took their advice, took him home and continued orthopedic clicnic until mid june when they took off the sling and told her to bring him the next week for therapy. Because she's a concern parent, she took her son to a private hospital and they immediately noticed something was wrong. The doctore then said, " they need to take him back to the public hospital for MRI and biopsy  test." Both of which his mom and dad had no idea what those test were. The next day they went happily, in high hopes, hoping to get to the bottom of this, only for the doctor to tell them that it's a tumor that is causing all the problems. As they heard the word tumor, his mother started researching and hoping for the best possible outcome. My cosuin Rhenako spent two (2) weeks in the hospital getting MRI, biopsy, CT scan, X ray, urine and blood test and afterwards his parents still couldn't understand where this came from because Rhenako was always a healthy kid. After all the tests, they discharged him july 12th, called his father on the 13th and asked to see us both on the 14th. not once did the words cancer and amputate were in their thoughts, but that was the words the doctors were preaching. So now his parents and everyone around him is trying their best to save my cousin arm/ life from this deadly disease that is cancer. I plead to everyone who sees this, any contribution, no matter the amount, small or big will go a very long way in saving my cousin arm and it will not go unappreciated!! Thanking you in advance.
