Syrian Nurcan, eight years old, may lose sight of his eye because he can cure eye cancer and the needles to be shot regularly are expensive. The only request of a family that can borrow money is not to lose the other's eyes of their children. The health system in Turkey is affecting the refugees who escape from the war in the countries and refuge in Turkey. The refugees who succeeded in being treated with a lot of difficulties are not able to complete the treatment after the high drug prices. One of these examples is the Syrian Nurcan Hasan who lives in İzmir. Nurcan, with four siblings, mother and father, is sitting in Konak's Gürçesme District. Hasan family came to Izmir from Aleppo city of Syria about two years ago. Baba Hulusi Hasan works at a furniture factory in Sarnıç for a thousand TL a month and is the only employee in the house. They live, Damp house rent is 350 TL. Nurcan eye cancer at 8 years of age. He lost his right eye when his treatment started late due to the war in his country. Nurcan is in danger of losing his other eye. Nurcan needs a part of the need for treatment of the state, but the family has to pay about 500 lira. The needle needs to be shot every two weeks. Depending on the euro, the price of the needle changes constantly. Since the financial situation of the family is not good, the debt can be borrowed up to now. And because the treatment is in Ankara, the road is added to the money. Nurcan needs a part of the need for treatment of the state, but the family has to pay about 500 lira.

We went to Behçet Uz Children's Hospital and then to Dokuz Eylül University Hospital, then to Ege University Hospital and finally to Çapa Hospital. There was a 3 month treatment in the capa.
