Story

Aleksej
Aleksej was very cheerful kid and everything was fine until his third birthday when he had his seizure. From that day, our mom and grandma have taken his to so many hospitals. For 10 years, doctors couldn't even tell us what's wrong with him. Luckily, one doctor discovered that he has so many schwannom-s (which is a type of tumor). About four years ago, he had his first gamma-knife operation in Turkey. Now, he is doing well, but he will have one more operation in next few months.
