Help Save My Voice
HELP SAVE MY VOICE
My name is NaNa Hedin and I am a prof vocalist from Sweden who has worked with producers Denniz Pop, Max Martin, Kristian Lundin and many others.
I am the vocalist behind artists like Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Ace of Base, E-type, Stakka Bo and Dr Alban to mention a few.
I have worked with music for 30 years.
This is my one love, my whole life and my identity.
I was born to sing.
In 2009 I got diagnosed with Tongue cancer .
The surgeon told me that she had to cut out 75% of my tongue in an attempt to save my life, but I refused.
I knew I couldn't live without singing .
So they gave me extensive Radiotherapy instead.
I had to learn how to talk again and I got liquid diets through a hole in my stomach for three years,
But.... I Survived! And I can still sing...
the doctors tell me that my jawbone is dying because of that same Radiotherapy.
They say that I am the worst case of Osteoradionecrosis they have ever had. They will have to resect my complete lower jaw and make a new jaw, an implant, from the Tibia bone in my leg. And yes.. Again they told me that I will never sing again.
But I've also been told the surgery won't damage the vocal chords...
So I am NOT giving up!
After serious research I have found that I am in acute need of HBOT - HyperBar Oxygen Therapy.
It's my best chance to minimize the infections before and after the operation, to make me HEAL the best way possible. The hospital has this treatment but they have unfortunately rejected my request.
So I need YOUR help!
PLEASE HELP me SING AGAIN!
With ALL my LOVE

I started this fundraiser first on Facebook and it went unbelievably well.
People raised the money in less than a month.
There was an issue with the Facebook rules so I spoke to the administration for several weeks.
Facebook said they were working on solving the problem but failed to inform that the bank account number need to be filled in within 30 days.
So without warning Facebook deleted my site and all the donations went back to everyone who had contributed.
However, people told me not to give up and that they would donate again.
So here we are!
Thanks a MILLION for all your wonderful support and bless you all for giving me this second chance..
