Zuzanna Michalska, 3 years

Gorzów Wielkopolski, lubuskie

Neuroblastoma IV stopnia

Started: 03 April 2020
Ends: 19 June 2021

Even 1 million zlotys ($240,000) may be the cost of Zuzia's life-saving treatment! We are waiting for the final cost estimate, but we cannot wait for help - every day counts!

My little sister has cancer. At first, I couldn't believe it ... But soon, I saw the results of tests and a tumor so large that it covered all her organs, to the extent that it was visible through the skin of the tummy. It’s killing my little sister ... Neuroblastoma - a malignant tumor that has turned our lives into a horror movie. And yet we won't give up. Zuzia will defeat this monster, I believe in her! Unfortunately, the last stage of treatment is not refunded in Poland – that’s why I am asking you to play a role in saving my sister's life ...

On November 4, 2019, Zuzia had a stomach-ache, losing energy with each passing moment. Her breathing became shallow. She didn't even have the strength to sit ... Her mother took her to the hospitals in Gorzów Wielkopolski - our hometown. First, the doctors estimated that my sister could have swallowed something, however, during ultrasound examinations, they saw something strange in her intestines. An immediate decision about an operation was made!

Zuzia found herself on the operating table. Then, we heard the worst news of our lives – it was a tumor. Already the next morning, we were transferred to an oncological hospital in Szczecin. During the next surgery, tumor samples were taken for thorough examination. A few days later, the doctors' worries were confirmed – it was a stage 4 neuroblastoma!

The tumor attacked a very large area of her body, including the lungs, makes breathing difficult, covering the kidneys and adrenal glands, evening reaching the intestines. Zuzia remained in a coma for two days, and then the fight began – one of life and death ... The doctors decided upon chemotherapy, which is meant to reduce the tumor enough that it can be safely removed. Unfortunately, there was an infection along the way. My sister was in critical condition. It was a serious bacterial infection, causing immediate discontinuation of chemotherapy…


We have just returned home after the last administration of one of the strongest chemotherapies. After a moment of rest, we will return for the next round, which will be surgery and then immunotherapy, if everything goes well. Unfortunately, the latter is not refundable ... Its cost in the case of Zuzia is about 800 thousand zlotys. A gigantic amount, seemingly impossible…

Our warrior has a lot of strength and fierce fighting, and despite the very hard treatment, she smiles all the time. It is the best motivation for us not to give up. We are waiting for treatment and we believe that it will help us to beat the cancer once and for all. Unfortunately, we are dependent only on ourselves and on all your good hearts ...


That is why, as Zuzia's brother, I am begging you for help. I can't let cancer take her away from me. My little sister is so tiny, with all her life in front of her and a world waiting to be explored! I believe that the world is good, with kind people in it that Zuzka will someday meet. People, who she’ll be able to thank for the help - for saving her life ...

Zuzia’s brother – Michal, with family
