Mother of 4 fights for her life!
Eeva is a beautiful woman, 45 year of age, a mother and a wife living in Estonia. She has dedicated her life raising 4 wonderful children with her husband Erki. Until June this year, they were very grateful that life had turned out like they had dreamt when they got married 16 years ago. Their youngest child had turned 7, the oldest 15, all the kids were doing great at school and Erki’s little business was doing well enough to support the family.
In June 2019, Eeva’s world was turned upside down. Nothing prepared her, her husband and their four children to what was to come.
Eeva was taken to the hospital with temporary confusion and memory loss. A small tumour was discovered in her brain. Furthermore, only in a month’s time it exploded in size and Eeva was taken to an emergency brain surgery the following morning. While doctors did an amazing job removing most of the tumour, the diagnosis was devastating - glioblastoma, a malignant brain tumour that few survive past 14 months.
Unfortunately, traditional radiation-therapy cannot cure this tumour. It’s one of the deadliest forms of cancer due to it’s aggressiveness.
Eeva and Erki do not give up the fight! Eeva has already made an important switch in her diet, eating only food that helps fight cancer. After lots of research and consulting with different doctors, they have also found a treatment center in Los Angeles, US that has a high success rate using medical cannabis in treating this deadly form of cancer. There are many cases of survivors who have been able to beat the same disease that Eeva has. Unfortunately, this treatment is not yet available in Estonia nor anywhere in Europe.
While Eeva’s medical doctors in Estonia are supportive of this alternative treatment option, medical insurance does not cover it. Family’s savings are running low and will not be enough to cover the necessary 3 month’s treatment in the medical center in LA and additional costs it involves. Yet, this is the only treatment that can save Eeva’s life.
It’s Eeva’s biggest wish to live and be there for her children as they grow up. Their youngest son is only 7 years old and the children can’t yet fully understand what is going on, the entire situation is heartbreaking. Eeva has such a big heart and she has been the most wonderful mother and a wife! Her children and husband adore her and if you knew her, you would know a warm-hearted beautiful woman with great passion for her family and life in general.
Eeva and her family need all the help they can get! Every small contribution helps to give Eeva a chance to beat the cancer and be there for her children when they grow up!
Please help these children to have their mama for more years to come! We truly appreciate every little contribution.
