More About Marwan

Marwen, looking a bit fedup at the hospital
It's been a very frustrating week for us and for Marwan.

Lamin, who is looking after Marwan for us, has taken him to the hospital day after day after day. It took about 4 days  to receive the results of his scan (pictured below). He's been diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a type of cancer, and needs to have the eye removed.....that's where we've come to a bit of a standstill. Since receiving the diagnosis Lamin has taken Marwan back to the hospital an additional 4 times in the hope of getting Marwan the treatment he needs and each time he's been told to come back the next day. Every day the eye is getting worse.
We've started looking into the possibility of getting treatment for Marwan outside of Sierra Leone. Lamin is having a meeting with the original doctor who referred him to find out if he has any contacts outside of Sierra Leone who might be able to help. We have no idea yet if this will be possible, but we have to try to do something.
I feel so useless, as if we are just waiting for his eye to get worse and worse until it's too late to do anything.
If you are in Sierra Leone and know any organisations or contacts who might be able to help please let me know.
If you are able to help financially towards Marwan's treatment and care please let me know.
If you can pray for him please do.
