I took a video of my cousin Ivan today.

He is 15, overweight and suffers from mental retardation. He can't talk.

His dad was murdered by the mafia here, they put a bomb in his briefcase and he was torn to pieces.

They stole their money and took their apartment.

Ivan is an only child.

His mom travels 200 km every day to go to work.

His grandpa looks after him. He makes him play football so that he can lose weight, dude is 90 kilos.

Look at the background buildings and streets, I live in a total ghetto, worse than Brazil.

What do you think is best to be done for kids like this?

They don't want to put him in an institution.

Docs said he may try surgery in Germany for 30,000 euros but the family doesn't have that much money.

A simple thing called Stemcell Research, Meatpie.

There's already cures for retardation but religious morons have been pushing it back.

Do you live near any research facilities? I know that here in the states, you can often volunteer to be part of research programs and the treatment is usually free.

Sounds a little too much like "Flowers for Algernon".

Maybe true, but the use of adult stem cell for treatment shouldn't be in too distant future. And I think that is a good thing.
