Thank you, my unknown reader, for your concern for those of us who know this child.

Your comment almost certainly came with the best of intentions, but it reflects some of what is not a good idea in such situations.
1. Saying "Don't worry all will be fine" with no reason for such a statement is sort of like telling people falling out of an airplane not to worry.
2. Passing on discouraging medical research is not always helpful.

Again, I do thank you for reading my blog. Please simply pray for my young friend and his family.
