PLEASE HELP A YOUNG CANCERPATIENT (15) IN IRAQ

Right now the world is changing - sadly many are negative such as: the terrorgroup ISIS, the war in Syria and Ukraine.
And I want to focus on a small crisis amidst the IS-Threat:

gofund.me/iraq-cancer

A friend of mine - Mustafa - developed cancer and is currently fighting it with all his strength! The problem is that in Iraq the medical field is so under-developed that there is no help for him in this country! As a friend and an Iraqi I know how important lives are and this is why I don’t want to loose my dear friend!
The mother (father died) could pay an operation in Jordan, but they got scammed which led him to breakdown 2 months later - the cancer is growing and there is no help because of the DEBTS this family has to endure!

I mean is that the work of a professional???

The doctor literally slashed him open and closed it without helping them somehow!!! I AM SO ANGRY AND SAD, I can’t believe THAT happend!

Thats why I want to help this family, they need every little penny they get! Please, reblog this so that everybody can help us!!!
I would be so happy to see my friend alive!

reblog and donate please, you are his only help

That’s him a a year ago and him after the “operation”

SIGNAL BOOST this please..

Israel denied entry permits to some 50 Palestinian medical patients from the Gaza Strip today. Suhad al-Katib, above, suffers from cancer and was one of those patients. Want to know why they were denied medical treatment?

Because the words “State of Palestine” appears on the letterhead of their application. 

Remember, the United Nations general assembly voted overwhelmingly to recognize Palestine as a state, in November 2012, with 138 in favor of the plan and only nine against.

That’s Israel for you.

A robot whose sole purpose is to connect emotionally with cancer patients. It’s working, too. 

Did you know that kids in cancer wards typically UNDERREPORT their trauma? Well here’s the solution. 

It’s America’s most adorable robot overlord, HUGGABLE. It’s made by scientists at MIT … and it will hit you in the feels … ON PURPOSE

Cancer-stricken kids, parents kicked out of park so Obama could pass by on his way to a fundraiser

This is ridiculous, even for Obama….

from Washington Post:

The U.S. Secret Service ordered hundreds of parents and their cancer-stricken children out of Lafayette Square on Saturday night, barricading the park for at least two hours and disrupting the group’s plans for a candlelight vigil to raise awareness and research funding for childhood cancer, participants said.

Some of the parents and children expressed hurt and disappointment that the Secret Service and Park Police, citing security precautions, virtually shut down part of a two-day event called CureFest for Childhood Cancer.

“We ended up waiting at the gates for two hours, and they never let us in,” said Natasha Gould, an 11-year-old Canadian girl who started a blog after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor this year. “And to be clear, the entire crowd was half kids. I cried last night in my hotel room because it was my first CureFest, and I couldn’t believe people were acting like they don’t care about children.”

Public information officers for the Secret Service and the Park Police were not able to comment immediately. Closures of Lafayette Square have occurred periodically since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and security incidents at the White House.

Organizers, aligned with the Truth 365 grass-roots child-cancer advocacy program, had obtained a permit to hold “A Night of Golden Lights,” in which participants would light electric candles.

But as the closure dragged on, some of the sick children, fatigued by the wait or the need to receive medication, had to return to their hotel rooms, organizers said. Others began crying, and some parents became enraged. Attendees said the group of at least 700 people were not allowed access to personal items they left behind, such as chairs and blankets.

Police officers and agents on the scenes told some parents that the closure was necessary because President Obama had left the White House from an entrance near the square to address the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual gala.

Look, I’m all for keeping the President safe, even if he is a lawless narcissist, but does anyone actually think these children with cancer or their parents gathered to hold a vigil posed a threat.  And for TWO HOURS!?!?! It’s one thing to pause activity in the park to let him drive by, but to close the park for TWO HOURS!???!

The man is despicable.

July 2 2015 - Police clashed with people trying stop a man being evicted from his home in Nottingham. Tom Crawford, who is recovering from prostate cancer, has been involved in a long running dispute with Bradford & Bingley over his mortgage payments. 

In January 2015, more than 300 people gathered on the quiet street in Nottingham to help stop Mr Crawford being evicted. That was the second time the cancer patient had received help from total strangers, after hundreds travelled from across the country in July 2014 to stop his eviction. [article]
