Hi! My dad has been fighting non-hodgkin's lymphoma since 2009. He has been taking different kinds of chemotherapy. His cancer has been recurring. I, as the daughter, have been researching about new medications that may help my dad to keep going. I was able to read this article about the stem cell that is being done in Germany. We want to try it but due to lack of resources, we cannot afford even one session. I would like to know if you know any cancer groups or any foundations who may help us to get at least a discount or one free session for the stem cell treatment. I love my dad so much. If only I am rich, I will definitely help him on his medication unfortunately I'm not, I am just a regular employee with average salary. I hope I can get a feedback. Thank you so much!

I am really worry since my niece at the age of 12 years old was diagnostic with cancer in her first rib and left lung it seems like the doctors cannot do anything about it or either are guessing which treatment will work for her. She had chemotherapy 2 times and the doctor's are telling my sister that the treatment isn't working. Also the doctor says that he needs to remove the tumors as soon as possible because she have 50% of survivor. Why now and not back them? She was able to eat more but now her health is slowly deteriorating again. I asked my sister to get a second opinion from another center since we only have just one opinion and that's the reason I am emailing you guys to see; What could be done? What's the first steps that need to be follow as a parent? Is a second doctor's opinion worth it? My niece does not wanted to die neither do I and I know there's someone in this world that can help us fighting against this condition. My niece life is in danger. She still strong for now and she still be able to transfer or move from the Children Hospital to another institution to be treated.
