Lampros, a 4 1/2 year old boy from Cyprus, has spent most of his life in and out of intensive care at Tel Hashomer-Sheba Hospital near Tel Aviv. His parents, Pantelis and Christina, have been with him, and for the past 4 years have been unemployed. The cost of treatment is covered by the Republic of Cyprus, and the family depends on loans, family and friend contributions, and the occasional fundraiser to support themselves.

Lampros suffers from a very rare disorder, General Lymphangiomatosis. He is arriving in Philadelphia on Monday, December 28, 2015 in a special medevac flight from Tel Aviv. He will be treated at Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia, by Dr. Yoav Dori, who has developed a novel procedure which addresses some of the main problems of the disease.

The Cyprus Society of Greater Philadelphia is working with the American Jewish Community in Philadelphia & South Jersey and the AHEPA Chapter in Philadelphia to support the family. They also need your (and your organization’s) support as well. Please contact Stelios Tsinontides or Marcia Bronstein or Corne Anastassiades for details on how you can help.

The Society has set up a FUND Site to accept donations to support the family. Your donations are greatly appreciated and tax deductible. You can donate at the link and the funds collected will go to this family in need.
