jeune fille malade

Bonjour, la photo que vous voyez est celle d'une fillette de 3ans qui souffre d'une tumeur maligne ou cancer du tractus urogénital appelée "Rhabdomyosarcome embryonnaire. Elle a été opérée à maintes reprises mais la tumeur repousse dans le mois qui suit l'opération. Ainsi son cas nécessite une trithérapie: la chirurgie associée à la radiothérapie et la chimiothérapie. Ces moyens thérapeutiques n'étant pas disponibles chez nous en RDC, cette vie innocente a tant besoin de votre soutien pour qu'elle quitte Goma et bénéficie des soins appropriés! Sa vie est en danger! pr tout contact :Dr Martin NAMUNINGA

Sick Young Girl

Hello. The photo that you see is of a 3-year-old girl, suffering from a malignant tumor, or cancer of the genitourinary tract, called “embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma.” She has been operated on repeatedly, but the tumor always comes back in the months following the operations. Her case thus demands a triple combination therapy: surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. With these treatments not available to us in the DRC, this innocent young life very much needs your help so she can leave Goma and receive proper medical care. Please contact:

Merci

Ma chère Cikwanine,

Cette histoire est tellement triste ; ça brise le coeur. Je prie pour cette petite, et pour tous les enfants comme elle dans la RDC. Je prie qu’elle recevra les traitements dont elle a tant besoin, et que sa famille sera près d’elle pendant cette période difficile. Si vous la connaissez personnellement, il faut que vous l’embrassiez pour nous.

S’il vous plaît, tenez-nous au courant de la situation. On vous écoute. Merci et à bientôt.

Cordialement,
LightMyWay
