Robert Szyca - Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia ALL L1-L2

Robert was born on 13 Oct 1994 in Żychce – a small village in Cassubia, Pomerania. Till September 2005 he had been a lively and active child. He always looked sound. :) He loved sport, riding a bike, P.E. at school. Though, the days came when he started to complain about pain in his legs, he didn´t want to go out to play with his mates. He straggled a lot, asked his mother to be excused from P.E. Classes. These were distressing symptoms. Yet, his mother didn´t suspect he had been having such a terrible disease. He went to a GP to obtain a referral for morphology. When the results came, everything rolled by very smoothly.

All at once Robert was transported to the Paediatric, Haematology, Oncology and Endocrinology Clinic of the AM Paediatric Institute in Gdansk. And there, after having done a number of examinations the doctors made the diagnosis: ´Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia ALL L1-L2´, and immediately, a strong chemotherapy according to ALL IC 2002 was initiated.

Robert has still been taking chemotherapy. Once a week he goes to Gdansk. For the parents this is a huge expense of about 400 zł a month (i.e. about €100). Moreover, expensive liver-protective drugs... because chemotherapy damaged this organ which doesn´t work properly now. For all the remedies and medicines they spend about 764 zł (i.e. about €183) a month. Till now they have lived and have got his son treated from savings. They had to be spent on house renovation but, which is obvious, treatment of their son has been the priority target. The savings have been used up and Robert is still under intensive treatment in Gdansk. During the treatment the boy has suffered a lot from consecutive chemotherapy injections. He´s had sepsis three times. It started from a infected catheter (a tube inserted directly into a caval vein). The Ladybird Society decided to help the family and on behalf of Robert we ask you to bid on auctions.
