Who she is:

Our one-liner summary of Caci: “a never-resting altruist”.

The kind of person who is first to paint the children’s’ foster home, the DJ in autistic kids’ picnic, the laser-sharp analytical mind of our Young Statisticians association. The kind of classmate that stands up for you when your Math teacher wants to give you a lower grade just because you wrote with a pencil, instead of pen. The kind of friend that will fit her hand in a squatting toilet to “rescue” your brand new mobile phone. The one who will wake up in the pitch black at 02:00 am to accompany her silly friends to the hospital, that irresponsibly ended up in a car crash. Even in the hardest times, after being diagnosed with Glioblastoma, Caci stood strong. She was the voice to re-assure us that it will be fine, and it will all end well.
A year later, the results unfortunately look alarming (description below). We, her family and closest friends, are not able to cover the 200.000 USD medical bills. Therefore, we want to reach out to you - our friends, family, generous strangers: let us help Caci regain the same old, spurring energy and love for the world. 

The story:

Last Fall, our friend Caci got unexpected symptoms of numbness and heaviness in the right side of her body: first her leg, and then her arm. Being an ultra-active twenty-eight-year-old and busy on all fronts (work, Statistics club, Academy club, friends, trips, and what not) she thought these were just ordinary warnings that her body is tired and needs some rest.
Unfortunately, the symptoms were a signal of a way more serious state. After surviving an epileptic attack, she was diagnosed with Glioblastoma – a malign tumor in the motoric cortex, of the left side of her head. An immediate surgery intervention was undertaken (in the private hospital Sistina, in Skopje, Macedonia), followed by a radio therapy and nine cycles of chemotherapy. Initially, the results were pointing toward a positive aftermath. However, the latest MRI results are revealing that the tumor re-occurred and is rapidly progressing, with a quadruple growth in size, in less than a month. This called for a second rapid surgery intervention, that took place in Skopje, Macedonia.

As this is one of the most aggressive versions of Cancer, she needs to be treated in a specialized hospital in the US, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The analysis of the cells is still to be done, and the doctors cannot say for sure which is the targeted therapy at this point. However, the medical costs for any kind of treatment at the hospital are estimated at or exceeding 200.000 USD.

Our voice:

Dear friends, dear family members, dear colleagues, dear generous strangers,

This is the point where we ask you to help us and help our friend, Caci. Even the smallest contribution is a major step to saving the Life of this never resting altruist.

It will mean the world to us to see her rollin’ as before.
Caci's moving force, apart from staying strong and healthy, is the idea of starting a Cancer support group in Macedonia. Unfortunately, in our country, there is lack of such efforts.

Of course, she can only do this by regaining her smile and winning this battle. This is not only her battle, it is ours as well!
