2 ans après les attentats le gouvernement belge et la compagnie d'assurance de l'aéroport n'ont ni pris de mesures convaincantes ni proposés des indemnités acceptables. 

Supportez la dans son combat quotidien vers une nouvelle vie.

Video testimony: " nobody should have to suffer this much" http://www.standaard.be/cnt/dmf20170317_02785502


"On March 22nd 2016, I had barely arrived at the Brussels International Airport to catch a flight to visit my grandmother when I was suddenly knocked to the ground and engulfed in a burning wave of heat. Critically injured, I was left fighting for my life. 

I sustained severe trauma to the left hip and leg, other wounds and body disfigurements, severe burns, and irreversible hearing loss. For months I underwent sedation, intubation, hundreds of excruciatingly painful operations, experimental treatments, numerous infections… my chances for survival were 0.


I want to reach out to others as a motivational speaker and mental coach. I believe my professional background in sports and recent life events will serve me in helping others overcome traumas in life. And also someday, return to the airport and complete that flight to the States!"

Since the attacks she has not been able to work. The purpose of this funding page is to seek assistance with  medical expenses not covered by the health insurance  and fees to pay lawyers and experts to defend her case.
