I’m in the ward of hematology unit. A girl of delicate constitution is sitting opposite to me. She is a very young mother. What sad eyes she has got…Those beautiful eyes are filled with mother’s pain and darkness of despair. When I’m trying to look into her eyes, I can’t help looking away. What can I say to her? What words can I find to comfort and cheer her up? I want to hug her and cry together with her. We mustn’t cry because a little nice baby is sitting next to us. Her name is Ilona. She is near 4 years old. I catch myself thinking that she has the same sad eyes as her mother. She fears and often cries because there are too many strange people around her. They give the injections and set droppers.....Ilona is cuddling a big teddy bear. The toy smells of home and grandmother’s pies…

The child was in good health. When the girl came down with bronchitis in July, 2010, it didn’t arouse any suspicions. It was treated as usual; however the fever didn’t subsided… After examination and undergoing medical tests the doctors made a dreadful diagnosis...

The little girl with beautiful sad eyes is sitting next to me and cuddling her teddy bear. This toy is the only consolation for her. Don’t be afraid, baby. You are not alone. Your parents and relatives are with you. They love you so much! And WE are also with you! All of us who are not indifferent to the pain and needs of other people. We who share grief. We who do not have somebody’s else children. THERE ARE NO SOMEBODY’S ELSE CHILDREN.

Let’s help Ilona and her parents!
