oligodendroglioma, third degree of WHO malignancy

Started: 09 July 2019
Ends: 11 September 2020

Hey!

My name is Jakub and I am 36 years old. I have been a happy husband for a year now and a father for three months.

23/02/2019 was the most important date in my entire life.. and the most tragic at the same time; on that day at 4 o'clock in the morning, my firstborn son, Łukasz, came into the world! Twelve hours later, however I lost consciousness and found myself in a hospital; I was diagnosed with a brain tumor - glioblastoma multiforme. The diagnosis knocked me and my Family off our feet; it was simply devastating! Honestly the prognosis did not give a great chance to be able to see my Son's first birthday... But I said “I will! I have to! For me, for Them.” and started fighting!

I am currently after surgery, two frontal-temporal lobe tumors have been excised. Unfortunately, there was another inoperable tumor around the corpus callosum which stayed untouched for time being. The final diagnosis is oligodendroglioma, third degree of WHO malignancy. However, properly treated gives a great chance for a long life.

At the moment I am undergoing radiotherapy, followed by chemotherapy which is planned at later stage. But to rise chances even more, altogether with my Family what we plan to do is to integrate immunotherapy treatment. This is the innovative method of stimulation of immunologic system to fight tumor by the body itself! This method gives me hope for personalized treatment and it can significantly increase my chances for rising my Son, for being there for him and my Family...!

Unfortunately, this method is not available in Poland and its cost in Germany reaches over one hundred thousand EUR. In addition to the treatment of cancer itself long rehabilitation is also ahead, waiting for me. After the surgery I have paresis of the right side of the body. I am unable to move my right hand and I have problems with speech. Thanks to the rehab I am already doing better: I am able to walk slowly with my cane and also, I believe that I will be able to restore mobility in my right hand since that is progressing as well.

Medication, rehabilitation and immunotherapy are extremely expensive. The amount of money required is simply too much for my Family to afford.

Jakub Gortadt

That is why I am asking You for your help! I believe that thanks to Your support I will be able to get appropriate treatment and will be able to became important part of my Son’s life...

Sincerely,

Jakub
