"My name is Mihai Popescu, I am 15 years old and I am from Ramnicu-Valcea, Romania. I am diagnosed with cerebral palsy with brain trauma, a disease that has affected my walking since my first years of life. Although I had 8 surgical operations along with 13 anesthesia and physical recovery at different medical centers across the country (Oradea, Targoviste, Sibiu, Bucuresti, Techirghiol, Ramnicu-Valcea) throughout 14 years of my life, I have never been able to walk unsustained. However, I am a student in 8th grade at ‘Anton Pann’ School in Ramnicu-Valcea in a NORMAL class. I have always wanted to be like my classmates, to be able to run, to play together, not to depend on my mother nor on anybody else. I’ve fought so far even though the surgeries have been painful, as well as the recovery and I don’t want to give up now when I have another chance to hope that I will become a normal boy at last. Please help me fulfill my dream now that I have a chance! "
“Specifications from the family”
Recently, we have sent the medical history file to a private clinic in Koln – Deutschland, specialized in stem cells implant, and their answer was positive. The surgical operation consists of the extraction of nerve cells from the spinal marrow, the processing of the cells and the eventual insertion of the stem cells. We are expected at the clinic as soon as we collect the required money.
The total cost of the operation is about 12.000 €, of which:
- the operation itself: 9.375 €;
- the rest of the money is necessary for: 2 two way plane tickets from Bucharest to Koln (minimum 200 € for 2 pers), hotel accommodation (minimum 200 € for two persons per night => minimum 1.400 €) (!! The clinic provides hospitalization, but it is very expensive) and food for 7 days with the possibility of extension of the stay depending on the disease development and, also, if there are any complications we will support the possible costs of additional treatments.
Because it is a private clinic (THE ONLY ONE IN EUROPE authorized to perform treatments with adult stem cells), the Ministry of Public Health and the insurance company can’t help us. We don’t have any kind of financial possibilities to raise this amount of money (the mother is a personal assistant with the minimum salary per economy – 135 €/month, the father is a worker with a salary of 250 €/month, and the sister is a university student at Cybernetics-Academy of Economic Studies in Bucharest), that is why we really need your big help.
Any small donation is welcomed in order to give together Mihai a chance to be able to become a normal boy and to enjoy his life.
