Please help me collect funds to cover the cost of ongoing long-term chemotherapy. English description below the Greek script

Ονομάζομαι Σωτήρης Κουλουριώτης και παλεύω με τον καρκίνο απο τον Μάρτιο του 2021. Εχω κάνει δύο χειρουργεία μέσα σε δυο χρόνια για δύο διαφορετικούς καρκίνους και πάνω απο είκοσι κύκλους χημειοθεραπείας, που συνεχίζονται μέχρι σήμερα.

Οι παρενέργειες των φαρμάκων μου έχουν καταστρέψει τα άκρα νεύρα κι έτσι έχω χάσει αίσθηση στα ποδια και τα χέρια. Αυτό με καθιστά ανίκανο να εργαστώ, ακόμα και σε δουλειά γραφείου, πόσο μάλλον στα χωράφια, που ήταν το τελευταίο μου επάγγελμα. (Ήμουν καλλιεργητής ροδακίνων).

Πέραν της σωματικής ταλαιπωρίας, αυξήθηκε το προσωπικό κόστος ζωής, το ίδιο γρήγορα που σταμάτησα να εργάζομαι. Χρειάζομαι χρήματα για συμπληρώματα διατροφής, παραιατρικά, λίγα ιατρικα (ανασφάλιστος), διαρκή έξοδα μετακινήσεων (το νοσοκομείο είναι 200 χλμ μακρια), έξοδα που πριν δεν είχα και έπεσαν όλα μαζί.

Σε αυτό προστέθηκαν οι αυξήσεις στο ρεύμα και τα καύσιμα, που πραγματικά με πετάνε στον δρόμο πλέον. Η ΔΕΗ μου ήρθε 2300 ευρώ, κατάφερα να βρω τα 1000 και τα υπόλοιπα διακανονισμό. Η οικογένειά μου έχει γονατίσει και μεγάλο μέρος των χρημάτων πήγε στην συντήρηση των χωραφιών, αφού πλέον δεν εργάζομαι.

Θα μπορούσα να γράψω πολλά για να περιγράψω την κατάσταση. Το θέμα είναι πως χρειάζομαι πάνω απο 1000 ευρώ/μήνα για να επιβιώσω στην παρούσα κατάσταση.

Θα χαρώ να μοιραστώ λεπτομέρειες της ζωής μου και να απαντήσω σε οποιαδήποτε ερώτηση με όποιον βοηθήσει, μέσω facebook ή τηλεφώνου.

Όλα αυτά ευελπιστώντας να θεραπευτώ πλήρως και να ασχοληθώ επαγγελματικά χρησιμοποιώντας το πτυχίο μου.

Ντρέπομαι που καταφεύγω σε αυτή την οδό βοήθειας, αλλά είμαι απελπισμένος.

Κάθε δωρεά είναι ανεκτίμητη.

Σας ευχαριστώ απο καρδιάς.



My name is Sotiris Koulouriotis and I’ve been fighting with cancer since March 2021. I’ve had two tumor removal surgeries in two years and so far I’ve had more than 20 rounds of chemotherapy, ongoing to this day.

The chemo side effects have my limb nerves burned out, so now I’ve lost

Any sensation in arms, hands and feet. This renders me incapable of working anything harder than a desk job, let alone peach farming, which was my last occupation.

Physical challenges aside, cost of living has risen as fast as my incomes stopped flowing in. I now need food supplements, paramedic substances, a few medical bills, because I’m not covered by insurance, and transportation bills, expenses that I didn’t have and now they piled up on top of my living expenses.

On top of that, there’s this energy crisis, thatr’s driven up fuel prices and considering I need my car to transport 200 Km away, to have a dose of chemotherapy (from Xanthi to Thessaloniki), fuel budget alone gets me completely out of budget. Not to mention the 0.80 euro/ KW of electricity. My house is unlivable with these prices.

My family has supported me as much as they could, and now they have to balance between my health and a budget to conserve the farms, which I can no longer work on.

I could go on for pages to describe how hard it’s become. The point is that my cost of living surpasses 1000 euros/month, just to preserve my self in therapy. I will gladly share many aspects of my life and answer happily any question to those who offer their help. That would be in person, via messenger, or telephone.

I’m asking for your help hoping in a full recovery, in order to use my University degree to make a living.

I feel ashamed and sorry to have chosen this path, but I’m totally desperate.

Any donation is priceless.

I thank you from the depths of my heart.

Thanks to your donations, i was able to buy a TENS passive device, in order to stimulate the dead nerves chemotherapy has caused. I hope this makes a difference, because it only gets worse, as chemo goes on.
