Neurologist has a brain tumor! Jadwiga saved people's lives... Now her life depends on you!
immunotherapy in Germany and Optune therapy to save Jadwiga's life
Ends at: 02 September 2020
Dnia 1 maja odeszła nasza ukochana mama, żona, córka i babcia.
Żadne słowa nie opiszą poczucia pustki i smutku, w jakim się znaleźliśmy.
Wszyscy, którzy znali Jadwigę widzieli, jak ciepłą i dobrą osobą była. Niepowtarzalna. Jedyna. Zawsze pozytywna.
Na zawsze będziemy o Tobie pamiętać, najukochańsza.
Dziękujemy wszystkim, którzy wspierali mamę i nas w trudnych chwilach. Dziękujemy za szczere i prawdziwe wyrazy współczucia i wszelką pomoc.
Każdy gest wsparcia naprawdę dużo dla nas znaczy. Dobro wraca.
Jadwiga jest już po drugiej stronie, ale na zawsze będzie w naszych sercach i w naszej pamięci.
Pogrążona w smutku rodzina
Pewne walki przegrane są tylko pozornie, bo dobra, które idzie w świat, nie da się zatrzymać. Środki, niewykorzystane na leczenie pani Jadwigi, zgodnie z wolą rodziny zostały przekazane na ratowanie życie innych podopiecznych Fundacji Siepomaga, cierpiących na podobną chorobę co pani Jadwiga.
Neurologist Jadwiga Dudziec saved the lives of patients in Wrocław hospitals for 40 years. 2 days after the last work shift, Jadwiga came to her ward ... as a patient. Brain cancer, glioma! Jadwiga knows how terrible this disease is. However, she believes in medicine, which she devoted her whole life to... She also believes in people and their support. And hence the appeal to you, because only you can save her life! We only have time until the end of December!
Jadwiga’s family is asking for your help:
Beginning of July 2019. Our mother celebrates her 65th birthday. It's also a jubilee - she celebrates 40 years in the profession of a neurologist. Work was her greatest passion, everything else was set aside. She was 100% involved in helping patients. A beautiful and happy day ... None of us knows that one of the last ones spent so carefree with our mother...
A month later, something bad is starting to happen with mother. She goes to the neurological ward. HER ward, where she was on duty only two days earlier, helping her patients. And it is her colleagues from the ward who give her and us a devastating diagnosis - a brain tumor. Glioblastoma multiforme in IV, worst grade of malignancy... One of the most malignant brain tumors. It sounded like a death sentence.
Horror, hopelessness, despair ... Mom sees the irony of fate in her illness. A neurologist with glioma - this was not right to happen!
At the very beginning our mother describes what will happen to her. Step by step, week by week ... She knows this disease and knows how it is when it attacks and takes away life. She also knows that she cannot give up! She says she will do everything to live.
We are her voice because she is not able to ask for help herself ... She is weak, distracted, it is difficult for her to speak. However, she doesn't give up! She is after a severe surgery in Berlin to remove the tumor and a few weeks of radiochemotherapy ... Unfortunately, with gliomas and the malignancy of the tumor, this does not give much hope ... However, there are innovative methods of treatment abroad that can save our mother's life! Thanks to which we will be able to see the flash in her eye again ... Which allow her to believe that she will be with us as long as possible - to blow out the candles, dress the Christmas tree, bake cakes, see how grandchildren grow, go to communion ...
The treatment plan that doctors have prepared for our mother is a combination of 2 methods - therapy with the Optune device and simultaneous immunotherapy. OPTUNE is a breakthrough in the treatment of gliomas. This is an electrical device that creates a magnetic field that affects the tumor. This disrupts the process of multiplication of subsequent cancer cells and stops the disease from progressing. SPECIAL IMMUNOTHERAPY is based on the injections of vaccinations created from the tissues of the removed tumor. It is supposed to stimulate the immune system to fight glioma. Oncological therapy methods based on immunotherapy have been awarded the Nobel Prize in medicine. It's a huge chance for life!
Unfortunately, both methods of treatment are not available in Poland and cost a lot of money. Mother will use Optune for 6 months, but we have to pay for everything in advance... Immunotherapy in Cologne costs 80 thousand euro! The worst thing is that we have little time - mother must start treatment at the end of December! We can't wait, because every day works in favor of glioma!
We are begging you for help for our mother and for rescue! Each zloty brings us closer to the longed-for goal, which is to save her life! Even if you can't help financially - share! This alone is really a huge gift of the heart ... Mother devoted her whole life to others. We believe that good will come back to her...
