Andrea, a guy like us who faced life trying to solve everyday problems, never exceeding, without pretending anything, woke up one day with a rare disease with an extremely low survival rate. 10 years ago, Andrea, through a routine check, was diagnosed the presence of a few bening cists on the left side of the liver, that were monitored by performing ultrasound examinations and analysis; that’s what had been prescribed by a doctor specialized in internal medicine.
A year ago, Andrea requested monitoring to verify a few values that resulted altered in his liver, but every doctor he reached out to reassured him that there wasn’t any severe situation, only his presistance allowed him to recieve the opinion of a surgeon. After many thorough examinations, the medics recommended to remove a cist that reached allarming size; sadly the surgery revealed the presence of a Cholangiocarcinoma, a rare primary tumor with metastasis in the peritoneum, namely the membrane that constitutes the lining of the abdominal cavity.
We immediately contacted several oncologists and their facilities, but the diagnosis always resulted in a low chances of survival, until we found professor Salem’s oncological center in Houston that applies an aggressive alternative therapy, using widespread medication, but applying 3 treatments at the same time: chemotherapy, immunotherapy and molecular target.
These treatments aren’t avaiable in italy, but Andrea had no choice and despite the high cost he found himself having to leave everything and go, hoping it’s not too late. Andrea’s friends and family try to support him at the best of their financial possibilities other than loans, but the expenses in the USA are very high. One month worth of therapy is roughly 175.000 dollars, and as for now, the stay is estimated to be around 2 to 3 months, without counting all the other secondary costs, such as the permanence of his elderly mother, who assists him there.
We need your help so that Andrea can recieve the only treatment that gives him a chance to survive that unfortunately the italian health system could not offer him.
