Save My Son From Unknown Disease

Dear Friends, Save My Son From Unknown Disease!!! This fund has been created to support Tim to travel to a clinic in Vivantes, Germany for a diagnosis (
Unfortunately he was not able to get sufficient help in both Ukraine and Israel and after 1.5 years of trying we are still trying to raise money for our travel.
 My name is Eugen ( We are the Ukrainian family, my son’s name is Tim, he is 2,6 years old.
One year ago doctors determined terrible diagnosis: Sepsis, PFAPA Syndrome, Cyst in the head, Herpes type 6 but none of the diagnoses was not confirmed and my son continues to suffer!
For the whole year our Kyiv’s doctors have been trying to heal him, but they failed…
Doctors recommended immediate treatment abroad because unfortunately the level of medical care in Ukraine is not on the highest level and the time is really short… Israel’s “Schneider” clinic agreed to take Tim for examination. It also cost us a fortune, and only the support of our relatives, friends and good people made it possible. But 1.5 month in Israel also didn’t help; the doctors couldn’t have understood why Tim was in such a bad condition for the whole year… His temperature rises up to 41, he refuses to eat, has terrible headaches and stomachaches, bad analyses. And now we are in the situation when neither Ukrainian nor Israel doctors can help.
Now our hope is German medicine. We have already contacted Vivantes Klinikum im Friedrichshain in Berlin (Germany) and have got the previous announcement – treatment will be expensive and will take a lot of time… For the beginning, on the survey put 4 236 euros for 4 days, and then will show different price, for treatment, which would be 10 times higher! Doctors said that he has to stay for at least a year in clinic and afterwards he will have to take medication under supervision.
And now we are really desperate. We need a lot of money we don’t have and have nowhere to take them from… It is unbelievably hard it is to see your child in such condition and not be able to do anything to help… And then we found out about GoFundMe… It is difficult to admit, but this is the last chance for our son to live… Please, if you want to do a good deed and save the life of a wonderful young boy – even the smallest help will be of great value for us!!!
And let the angels protect you and your children!
Tim’s father, Eugen
