My Name is Peter Cipolla and I am Fortunato (Nat) Russo's Uncle.
Nat Russo, a healthy, strong and happy 21-year old young man, full of life wakes up every morning and enjoys his work at the carpentry company he has worked at for 2 years.
Around October 2020 whilst out with his friends, Nat had a fall and hit his head which required six stitches.
The GP wanted to be sure that there was no bleeding in the brain so he asked Nat to go and get an MRI scan. The results came back clear of any bleed but unfortunately what it did show is a serious Ependymoma tumor.
An Ependymoma tumor arises from the Ependyma, a tissue of the nervous system and effects the spinal system and can be fatal if not attended to.
Nat is a very fun young man, loved by his family and friends. He is always there for anyone in need, he now needs your help to get through a very expensive surgery that will be conducted by Dr Charlie Teo, a highly regarded brain surgeon.
Please dig deep. Any amount will help Nat get through this surgery and rehabilitation process.
All proceeds go towards his treatment and rehabilitation.
