His dream was to go to the World Cup in Russia to watch the Colombian National Team play and after getting the ok from doctors, his friends paid for the ticket and he was off to Russia. However on June 30th, when it was time for Einstein to return to New York, he collapsed in the airport in Moscow. He was given first aid and He was admitted to the National Research of Hematology in the Moscow, there he has been in an induced coma while they have been treating and stabilizing.
We have received communication from the Public Ministry of Russia informing that my brother is able to be transferred to the United States in an Ambulance Airplane with Medical Assistance, but the insurance has denied us the help because he has no international coverage. The cost for this is really high.
The doctor in Russia who is in charge of Einstein's case has reported that:
* The tumor in his brain is growing back,
* He is conscious now however, he needs oxygen to breathe, hemodialisys for the kidneys to work,
* He can't really speak, nor swallow and the food is delivered through a nasogastric tube.
The doctors recommend the need to bring him back to the United States so he can be close to his loved ones and to continue being treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital.
The cost for the Air Ambulance Transportation is around $140,000.00 covered by our family and unfortunately we do not have this money.
We ask you to PLEASE consider making a donation out the goodness your hearts to help us bring my brother back home to his 2 children that he has and to our family. Thank you and God bless you.
