Slava (Vyacheslav) Afonin is from Lisichansk, a town in the Lugansk region.
He fell ill in September 2002, when internal destruction of the left radius was revealed. And the diagnosis became known in December: Ewing's sarcoma, 2nd degree.
The boy went through six courses of chemotherapy from December 2002 to June 2003. After the affected part of the bone was surgically removed, he had six more courses. The last course had to be interrupted in April 2004 due to exacerbation of Hepatitis B, which appeared during the therapy.
And then, in September 2004, two lung tumors were observed. An examination showed a relapse of Ewing's sarcoma.
Slava fought bravely, but a donor could not be found in time for him to have a life-saving lung surgery. Vyacheslav died on March 5, 2008. He was buried in his hometown of Lugansk.
