Post my son wasdiagnosed with lymphangiohemangioma...pls help

my son was diagnosed with lymphangiohemangioma on his left thigh when he was about 5 months old. i brought him to a local surgeon in Iloilo, Philippines, but no sort of medication was provided. When he turned one, he suffered from an infection (accdg. to the surgeon), I was advised that he needs to be treated and after treating the infection, he needs to undergo a surgery. But as a mother, i really don't feel good about we didn't push through with the surgery. We went to manila and was referred to a doctor, and upon checking on his mri result i was advised that they will need to inject Bleomycin (chemo drug) in the wall cavity of the mass. My son just turned three. Now there is another mass growing on his left calf. I badly needed an advise and help in any sort.
