Help me fight brain cancer!
Hi, my name is Marcin. I used to be one of you.
I've worked in a large corporation. From the moment of waking up – to be exact from 5:30 am to the end of the day at 11:30 pm it seemed to me that I was in control of my life. Suddenly, without any previous symptoms, on September 18th 2016 late at night I lost my former life. From that day, my life, being a father and husband, is becoming just a beautiful memory.
It started with a terrible headache and soon I had lost control over the left side of my body. After the tests at the emergency ward I found out that I have a brain tumour about the size of a large mandarin, which had to be removed as quickly as possible, if I still wanted to live.
It’s very hard to imagine, waiting for brain surgery - this is your own head - and something is going to be removed from it! And it seemed that the visit in the ICU is just because you are unable to move your hand. I didn’t know yet, that this would be the worst possible type of brain cancer - the most malignant glioblastoma multiforme IV.
The disease, in which survival time is assessed at approx. 1 year from the diagnosis, statistically affects 3 people out of 100 thousand. The most important thing you can say about it is: "Thank you, World, it's not me!"
Life changes dramatically when you are facing such a terrible disease. A man changes as well - it’s not easy to keep a positive attitude when you’re aware of the passing days. I hope to use every opportunity I can to stop glioblastoma, also by using the methods and medicines unavailable in Poland. My family and friends are greatly supportive, but non-standard therapies are financially unattainable for us. We’re collecting the funds for the immune treatment - the cost of the therapy is 66 500 EUR.
That’s why I ask for your help! I really want to spend another Christmas with my family and see my daughter grow up.
