The light in the tunnel – Marcelina does not have to lose her eye
Of all newborn babies in Poland, 20 in one year become ill with retinoblastoma – malignant cancer of eye. It’s not much, if you look at the percentages and awfully lot if you look at the amount of parent’s suffering. A small number of cases in Poland means that there is no effective therapy developed that guarantees 100% cure from the cancer. But in the whole World scale it is different.
There is a clinic, the only one in the World which has experience and great results. Five children from Poland went there for treatment – all cured. So there is a chance that Marcelina will not lose an eye. How big? It depends on us, but also on you.
The clinic is in New York and the cost of the operation is … 350,000 $. This amount spends us awake at night, but we believe that it manages to collect. This worked several times in Poland. We contacted already with parents who did it. We have a plan and implement it step by step. Wings give us the fact that Marcelina can be 100% cured. We will do it.
Why do we want to treat Marcelinka in the US?
It is a rare disease. In Poland we have many doctors with passion, but they do not meet often this type of cancer. Only recently Polish doctors learn how to carry out more effective treatment. With great hope we are seeing their progress. But we have little time, because the tumor grows. Therefore, if it is possible, we want Marcelina fell under the care of doctors with great experience and effects, and it is guaranteed by the clinic in the United States. We’ll do it, right?
How can you help Marcelina?
Prosaically. Two ways.
● Donate although small sum. Really, the amount does not count, but the time – every day of delay is expanding cancer and a greater loss of vision. If we wait too long Marcelina is in danger of losing an eye, blindness and even death. I do not want to think about it.
● Share this site with as many people with good heart as possible. The more people know, the faster Marcelina will get rid of this terrible disease.
