Hello everyone, I'm Nikola, 28 years old and I'm from Serbia.
I'm suffering from multiple sclerosis for 14 years now, and for all these years I haven't received any therapy for MS because of the terrible corrupted health care in our country and that's the cause for me being in a wheelchair now. Other patients from Serbia that suffer from MS like myself can't receive therapies because only 10-12% of patients can receive therapy and of course you need to bribe certain doctors to get into therapy program or to have a connection that can get you into that study. So right now I can't walk,my hands are shaking and I have no job. I'm living with my fiance and I'm getting only 245€ from social service due my disability. When we pay the rent and bills we can barely have enough for food... I can't remember when was the last time I bought something for her or for myself. Also because she is studying to become doctor and college is taking too much of her time,she can't get a job because she's spending 8-10 hours on college. I've tried to work on freelancing websites but it's too hard because I don't have necessary knowledge and there are freelancers that have knowledge and experience so they get all jobs. Life is a struggle, and I'm aware of that, trust me but I didn't chose to get ill with incurable disease. I used to play basketball, football and other sports but then I got sick. And I know that you're not obliged to donate money to me, but this way is the only way to get a bit better life. Or to get on the street and beg for money. Those are my options. With this money I'll go to rehab center for MS, buy some clothes and improve quality of our lives. Also I will help my friend in need that is also suffering from MS. 21 days in that rehab center is recommended by doctors but I can't afford it even in my dreams because is costing about 1000 euros. So I'm asking all people with good hearts to donate, even 1 euro, it will mean a lot to me. Thank you kind people <3
