This is Ela. In May 2015 Ela was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Two weeks after receiving the diagnosis Ela had to undergo a mastectomy.
She has come a long way through chemotherapy.
Ela was very lucky in life because in a difficult fight with this illness she was supported by a loving husband.
Piotr was brave and cheerful.
He loved life and loved Ela more than life.
He motivated her, made her laugh and gave her great hope.
They were together for 22 years and less than four years ago they got married.
When Ela’s brother died just a year ago, Piotr supported her, encouraged her and helped her get through this difficult time .
Unfortunately, cruel fate separated these two loving people.
On July 29th Piotr died unexpectedly.
He left huge suffering and emptiness behind.
This poor girl has lost all sense in her life.
Piotr and Ela had been living in Ireland for over 12 years.
After Piotr's death Ela is now left alone with expenses such as rent and bills.
Due to her health, she needs a proper diet and the appropriate supplements, which can be very expensive.
Ela needs your support to get back on her feet and to re-arrange her life.
She is a good, warm and a very humble person.
She has never asked for help because she thinks there are people who need it more.
That is why I'm asking for her.
If you can give a small amount, this will help Ela in this very difficult time in her life.
