I am asking all of you for your help! In November 2017 my mom was diagnosed with a brain tumour (atypical meningioma, Grade II). Fortunately, according to the results of MRI, the tumour is benign and is located on the surface and has not yet infiltrated the brain tissue and therefore can be removed completely. According to many neurosurgeons whom we've contacted, there are great chances for a complete recovery and bringing my mom back to normal life if the appropriate micro-surgery is completed within 1-2 months. This is because the tumour is located nearby the important vessels, and once it penetrates them and into the brain tissue itself, a pessimistic outcome would be inevitable.
My mom lives in Ukraine, and unfortunately, such type of neurosurgeries cannot be conducted there, since they involve complex micro manoeuvres
which can only be done on special equipment. New technologies used in this particular type of surgeries dramatically increase the chances of recovery and prevent recurrence. I am now studying in Germany and was lucky to meet with Prof. Roman Bosnjak and his colleague Prof. Guenther C. Feigl who work in one of the most advanced neurosurgical centers in Germany - Klinikum Bamberg. They have both consented that at this stage they can help my mom and give her very good prognosis for complete recovery if the surgery is done as soon as possible.
The total cost of the entire treatment is 22,000 EUR. Regretfully, this amount is unaffordable for neither me nor for my parents, even though it is not that astronomical.
That is why I am initiating this fundraising programme since all that I want is to save the life of my beloved mom. Her name is Nataliya and she is only 42. She is bringing up my little bro, who is just 6 years old. She is the best mom, the best wife and the best friend for me and for my brother. I would not have become who I am now without her constant support and simply without her. She is kind and always tries to help others. Now it is a time when she needs help. And I want to do everything I can to save our mother. She wants to live and be happy together with her family.
PLEASE, help me to save my mother!
