Filip Kwasny, who can barely speak, communicated his wish from his hospital bed in London’s Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.

The boy, who used to be a pupil at Friar Grove Primary School in Colchester, was diagnosed with juvenile myelomonocytic leukaemia (JMML), an accumulation of abnormal blood cells in the bone marrow, in September 2016.

The diagnosis came after he had also been diagnosed with neurofibromatosis type 1 when he was two, from which he initially recovered.

His 40-year-old father, Piotr Kwasny, is desperate to raise Ksh 805,900 (N2,425,759) in order to fulfill his son’s wish to be buried next to his mother. They will have to exhume the mother’s coffin, which according to the father has been underground for five years.

Kwasny senior said: “He says that I am his angel that is looking after him here on earth, and that his mum will look after him when he gets to heaven.”

Kwasny’s cancer, according to the medics, has spread to his intestines. The boy currently receives only palliative care to make him comfortable as his short life comes to an end.

Chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant have all failed to cure Kwasny’s leukaemia. Doctors are not sure of how much time the boy has left to live.

The heartbroken father said: “There is a bell in the Fox Ward outside Filip's room. Ward patients ring the bell three times when their treatment is done and they are leaving. Filip, my son, will never get to ring that bell."

Well-wishers have been donating to help Kwasny fulfil his wish, which is to be buried in the same coffin as his mother who was buried at her home village of Wadowice in southern Poland after she lost battle with cancer.

He said: “I don't know how well he remembers his mother as he was so young when she passed away, but he has visited her grave when he was well enough to speak to her.”

Kwasny senior further added that he will need to organise for the mother’s body to be exhumed so that they can be re-buried together.

Sadly, the father is also ill. He reportedly has spina bifida, one kidney, diabetes and hypertension. He cannot work, and therefore has been unable to raise funds to pay for his treatment.

Clearly, this family is in desperate need of support.
