UPDATED: Please Help Johnny Mavroutsikos Beat Cancer: A Personal Appeal

UPDATE: Thursday, October 11, 2012

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of Johnny Mavroutsikos this evening. A fine, brave young man who fought the devastating renal cancer valiantly and with quiet grace, died peacefully, surrounded by his loving family and friends.

There is comfort when suffering is at an end.

Funeral arrangements will be announced by the Mavroutsikos family.

Steve, Bessie, Chrissy: On behalf of my family to yours; our hearts and thoughts are with you in this difficult time. Your son had the heart of a warrior.

Antonin Pribetic and family

This is a personal appeal to my readers, friends and colleagues.

Please consider making a donation  (in any amount you can afford) to help Johnny Mavroutsikos, a close friend of our extended family, who is bravely battling a rare form of Kidney Cancer (Renal Cell Carcinoma).

Via the Help Johnny Mavroutsikos’ Beat Cancer Facebook Page:


Johnny Mavroutsikos at the age of just 16 was diagnosed on February 6 ,2012 with a rare form of Kidney Cancer (Renal Cell Carcinoma). He needs your help.
Although Johnny has fought valiantly, the cancer has spread (metastasised to stage 4) and the doctors have informed the family that the medication provided will not work and there are no alternatives available to them through the hospital.Johnny and his family have not given up hope. There are new experimental treatments available that have shown great promise but sadly they are not covered under the families health insurance and are very costly.

Please help Johnny and his family by donating what you can, so that this young boy, that just turned 17, can fulfill his birthday wish to get well and be able to continue on his journey of life that he has only begun.

“Plant seeds of happiness, hope, success, and love; it will all come back to you in abundance. This is the law of nature.”

    – there are many other options abvliaale in the US.The real question is BETTER than chemo or radiation really better? I’m a Cancer survivor who owes his life to chemo and radiation therapy. It worked for me. Cancer Treatment Centers of America bases it’s advertising on providing the most and best therapy’s abvliaale for Cancer. I may be biased, being an American- but even so, the research I’ve done rates America’s treatments, drugs, and general procedures a healthy cut above the rest of the world. I guess my best advice based on my opinion- would be to go with the usual course of treatment prescribed , unless the prognosis or results were terminal.
