Please help my son to get overseas treatment .


Dear friends,

We are again in fourth time need of your help! My son Maksim has already undergone three brain surgeries for the removal of cancerous tumors.

This time the tumor has appeared in brain stem. The verdict of New Zealand neurosurgeons - not resectable.

But again professor neurosurgeon, Prof. Dr. Bernhard Meyer, from Munich is ready to save my son’s life . We are very thankful to him, who gifted 4,5 years of life for my son, and now we have a chance to prolong his life again. Please refer to the gallery for letter from the clinic in Germany.

My son is 26 years old now. Five years passed since he was diagnosed in 2017 with brain cancer. And he can keep living his life..

Please help....

Hard decision   17 June 2021

Posted by: Oksana Pankova

Hello everyone, is is very hard to accept but Max is very very weak to get Germany . We have had yesterday a video call from doctor from Germany ,he explained all clear about a surgery on this stage . The tumor is growing very fast and affecting many functions in the body . During the surgery ( even in Germany and with very high Quality medical surgery navigation ) only about half of tumor can be removed and still very high risk after surgery which in 85% can destroy many life functions in the body. After surgery must be provided radiotherapy and chemotherapy and it is for long time about 5-6 months staying in the hospital . What will left of my son after ? Maks wants to stay home . It is very very hard extremely hard decision for mum..... I don’t know how I will continue my life without my son

Thank you for your help and support...
