CHERRY HILL, N.J. -

A 5-year-old boy from Israel faced with a rare form of cancer is turning to doctors in Philadelphia for an experimental treatment that could be his only chance to get better.

Harel Dabush was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma a little over two years ago.

His family says slowly the boy's tumor spread to his bones and throughout his body, most recently to his skull and chest.

Dabush arrived in the Philadelphia area last week with his father for the treatment. A family in Cherry Hill has opened up their home for them to stay.

The treatment at the hospital is expected to cost $60,000 a month. The family says they've raised some of the money but hopes to raise thousands more.

FOX 29's Iain Page met the family. You can watch his story in the video above.
