Don't Let Arsen Die: Grant 13-Year-Old Cancer Patient Humanitarian Parole

      Seattle, WA

When Arsen Mkrtchyan was only four, doctors in Armenia told his mother that he had a fatal type of throat cancer that causes recurring tumors to form, and that there was nothing they could do for him. It was a death sentence.

But Arsen's mother brought him to America, where doctors in Denver have been volunteering their services to keep now 13-year-old Arsen alive through regular surgeries, while they continue to look for a long term solution.

Arsen is now awaiting his 97th surgery, but his medical visa expired in January and U.S Immigration denied his request for another one. Arsen's last chance to continue to live now depends on a request for Humanitarian Parole, which if granted would allow Arsen to stay in the country until he is out medical danger.

Please sign this petition asking USCIS to grant Arsen Humanitarian Parole. His life depends on it!
