Help save Ada Brasoveanu's life

My uncle Petru has been a trauma surgeon and a musician as far back as I can remember. He is an illustrious surgeon and artist. His hands can both save your life, and mend your soul with music. He has always given, and never asked for anything in return. I cannot think of one occasion where he had turned anyone away in a time of need, medical or personal. And when I was not around to witness it, he would occasionally show up at home with a live chicken. That usually meant that whomever he helped had no other way of thanking him and refusal was not an option.
I could go on for days about my uncle, how much influence he has had on my own life values and the numerous lives he has saved, or in some direct way improved. But this is not about him. This is about his beautiful wife, my aunt Ada. I fell in love with her the moment he introduced her to the family. Even thought I was very young, I vividly remember how I felt and how I concluded in that instant that she was the perfect fit for him. She is just as kind and open as he is, and would give her last piece of bread to someone in need.
My request is that you take a look at his letter below, and see if you can help a desperate man that has dedicated his life to helping others, even if it just means sharing this message. It pains me to think how helpless he must feel, when his hands have solved so many complicated issues for others, yet he can’t help his own.

Thank you,

Update: Per GoFun me policy: I will be withdrawing the funds in the US and sending them to Moldova via Western Union. 

            Dear Friends,

          I am writing to ask for your kind help to save my wife's life.

          My wife’s name is Brasoveanu Ada, she is 46 years old and she is working as a university teacher. She is a loving mother of two sons, an incredibly kind wife and a wonderful daughter and sister.
          Right now she is passing through a very difficult period. Recently she had been diagnosed with colon adenocarcinoma in stage four, with three metastases less than one centimeter in her liver.
          She had surgery that consisted in right hemicolonectomie and removal of liver metastases, and right now she needs an expensive course of chemotherapy that should be done abroad.
          I am a trauma surgeon at the Emergency Hospital from Chisinau, Republic of Moldova and I am trying to seek possible international medical help, which seems to be the only opportunity for my wife to stay alive.
          In our financial situation, we cannot afford international medical expenses. I have tried all possible ways to arrange the money required for her treatment but the amount is beyond my reach. Her condition is getting worse with each passing day.
          Any financial help or information about charitable medical organizations and possible financial support will be highly appreciated. To find more possible help from the kind people all over the world, we hope this message could be spread out. Please share it if you can.
          Thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness and generosity. Only God and your kindness can save my wife’s life.
Sincerely yours,
Zlatin Petru (husband) and her family
