At the very beginning of his life, this small, enduring, cheerful boy was diagnosed with a tumor in the left adrenal gland. But the cause of the boy’s deterioration – problems with the pancreas, dropsy of the testicles, loss of appetite, seemingly causeless fever, necrosis of the femoral head – was found only after attending lots of various doctors in various clinics, this required long time. Stepan has already undergone 5 chemotherapy blocks. It should be followed by an operation to remove the tumor, a chemotherapy block, high-dose chemotherapy and bone marrow transplantation.
