Who is this fundraiser for?
Saputra is a 2 year old little Indonesian boy living in Jakarta, Indonesia, who has developed a tumor in his right eye. The tumor is extremely aggressive and grew from nothing to what you see in the pictures in only 2 months.

I am a French expatriate who lives in Indonesia and I am trying to help Mrs Indah get the medical care Saputra needs in order to increase his chances of survival.
What do we need?
Unfortunately, the funds raised so far by Mrs Indah will not be enough to cover Saputra's upcoming medical expenses including the very expensive multiple rounds of chemotherapy.
We need more donations as soon as possible because Saputra's cancer is very aggressive.
