First and foremost, i'd like to thank you all for taking the time to read this. To those who are diagnosed or know of anyone diagnosed, my prayers are for you, don't give up and stay strong.

I would like you all to meet Kirles (pronounced Carlos):


Carlos was diagnosed with leukemia a few months back:


For those who don't know, their has been alot of fighting going in Syria and the country is currently going through a civil war. As a result, the treatment necessary for Kirles is not available.

The reason I made this post is to ask, what in Gods name can I do for this boy? I got into contact with the SickKids hospital in Toronto but sadly they couldn't do anything. Is their something available for the boy that i don't know?

I've just been emailing and contacting hospitals near the child's country to see if theirs any sort of treatment for international children. Is their anything else I can do or something im not aware of?

Cancer has taken many from me but i"m not sure how ill take losing this boy. What gets to me the most is the fact that theirs treatment available out their but just not available to kirles. Do I just sit here and watch him slowly go? Its beyond sickening....

Again, I think you all for reading this.
