Yianna's treatment

€1,220 of €25,000 goal

Yianna Palmou is a Greek friend of mine and lives on the island Meganissi near to Lefkas. Yianna suffers from diabetes, type 1. On August 5, 2018 she came in a coma due to some unfortunate circumstances. In de meantime she recovered from the coma, but she's still in the hospital of Arta, lying on the intensive care unit. Due to the long time she's already lying down on a bed she can not move her limbs because she does not has muscle power anymore. She is also still unable to breathe on her own! Lying longer entails great risks.
A follow-up treatment, meaning daily, fulltime and intensive fysio therapy, is necessary and lifesaving. The problem is that Yianna is not insured for the necessary follow-up treatment, with no further treatment yet as a result.
It is urgent that financial resources are quickly available to start the treatment. Postponing the follow-up treatment increases the risk of complications and even death. The money will be spent on intensive and full-time therapy in a specialized clinic to guide Yianna in learning to walk and move again.

Yianna Palmou is een Griekse vriendin en woont op het eiland Meganissi bij Lefkas. Zij heeft diabetes type 1. Op 5 augustus 2018 is zij  door een ongelukkige samenloop van omstandigheden in een coma geraakt. Inmiddels is zij daaruit bijgekomen, maar zij ligt nog steeds in het ziekenhuis van Arta op de afdeling intensive care. Zij kan haar ledematen niet bewegen omdat zij, als gevolg van het langdurig liggen, geen spierkracht meer heeft. Ook is zij nog steeds niet in staat zelfstandig adem te halen! Langer liggen brengt een groot risico met zich mee. Een vervolgbehandeling in de vorm van dagelijkse en intensieve bewegingstherapie is noodzakelijk en levensreddend. Het probleem is dat Yianna  niet is verzekerd voor die noodzakelijke vervolgbehandeling, met als consequentie dat er geen verdere behandeling wordt gestart.
Het is urgent dat er snel financiële middelen ter beschikking komen   om de behandeling te kunnen starten. Uitstel van de vervolgbehandeling vergroot de kans op complicaties en zelfs overlijden. Het geld zal worden besteed aan intensieve en fulltime therapie in een gespecialiseerde kliniek om Yianna te begeleiden in het weer leren lopen en bewegen.

Hi all! Today I received a message from Yianna's sister Chrissa that things are really going bad.
They keep Yianna artifically asleep due to extreme pressure on her brain. Slowly, slowly she will die.

May I assume that you agree that the family will spend the money that we raised for a decent funeral for Yianna?

Thanks again and kind regards, Paul
