Malek’s mother: a major brain surgery saved my son, and we started his treatment with radiotherapy sessions.

On our way to Hospital 57357 we were terrified, unable to believe that we were heading towards this same Hospital we used to see in ads and for whose patients we used to pray. That day, our son Malek was being admitted to receive cancer treatment.

Malek had a major brain surgery , and his treatment journey is going to take long, but we have great hope that he will be cured. In this place, I have seen many children who need long-lasting treatment, but I also saw children who have recovered, left the Hospital and went back to their normal lives. May God enables the Hospital to achieve its mission.

“ My son is 7 years old. He was a normal child who was doing well at school, and who liked sports especially kick boxing and gymnastic”, shares Hanaa, Malek’s mother. “About 6 months ago, he started complaining from blurred vision and continuous vomiting. In the beginning, we thought it was just a cold, but symptoms increased, he complained from severe headache and a change in the shape of his eyes. Doctors requested an MRI on the brain, after which they told us that he had a brain tumor. We were shocked and didn’t know what to do, but the doctor advised us to go to Hospital 57357 immediately. He said they had great expertise, up to date equipment, and a high success rate of brain surgeries.

We went to the Hospital feeling terrified and hopeless, but once we were admitted, we felt better. Children were laughing and playing in the garden, which we considered a promising beginning. We were well taken care of from the very first moment. Each step is well planned. We started at first with a quick surgery to install a valve. one week later they performed a difficult brain surgery to remove the tumor, which spanned more than 6 hours.

After the surgery the vomiting stopped and his eyes were back to their normal shape. We were told by doctors that he would start radiotherapy for 33 sessions.

Cancer treatment is long and tough, but thanks be to God, there is no bill to pay, the Hospital bears the cost of everything including my son’s and his accompanying person’s meals. They left us no burden to carry except taking care of our son. People at the Hospital made it easy for us, the medical team is exerting utmost effort; psychiatrists, social workers and the volunteers used to help my son psychologically, they took him to the art workshop to draw and play.

Thanks be to God, my son got much better, and we have great hope in seeing him cured and resuming his normal life. I am praying God to enable us to donate to this great Hospital to contribute to saving other children’s lives.
