Help Edita Gjikolli fight Leukemia

My name is Dritero Gjikolli and I’m opening this GoFundMe account on behalf of my cousin Veton Gjikolli to help his wife Edita fight Leukemia.

Edita is 41 years old from Kosova, respectively from Peja and she’s a loving wife to her husband Veton and three beautiful children Arba 15, Aron 13 and Adora 5.

Edita was diagnosed w Acute Myleoid Leukemia on Dec, 2018. Due to the lack of the treatment in Kosova she was forced to seek treatment in Istanbul, Turkey at Acibadem Hospital. As soon as she arrived there she started with a Chemotherapy regiment  were she had to take 4 sessions. Since she’s was treated in Turkey they had to pay all the expenses in cash. Only those 4 sessions costed her 72,000 € which was unbearable amount for her family to pay but with the help of close family and friends they were able to get to that amount.

At the end of the four session the doctors gave her the best news she was expecting that her remission was successful and that meant that she doesn’t have to go through the Bone Marrow transplant. It was a miracle at that time.

Sadly just two weeks after, on her birthday on May, 12 she started feeling very sick and was in huge pains. After performing a blood work she was given the very bad news that the cancer had come back and very strong. They told her she has to start the procedure for Bone Marrow Transplant as soon as possible.

Edita arrived in Turkey three days ago and started the treatment. The biggest problem is that hospital is asking for $150,000 to do the transplant. This family is pushed against the wall because there’s nowhere they can come up with that amount.

I’m asking good-willing people out there to please help this beautiful soul to fight Leukemia so she can go back to her beautiful children and husband hopefully soon. Any contribution you are able to donate will help her tremendously. Even if you can’t help at least pray and share this with your friends.

May God bless each and everyone of you and your families!
