As my previous 3 fundraisings, this one will have a goal to achieve too. If you don't know Adrian, he used to be the vocalist of the Polish death metal band Decapitated and recorded the album Organic Hallucinosis with them in 2006. In 2007, the band had a tour bus accident in Russia that led to the death of their drummer Vitek and the injury of Adrian. Adrian suffers from cerebral hypoxia and is totally paralyzed since then.
On March 20, 2021, Adrian started having a fever. Two days later, his blood oxygen level dropped and he started having breathing difficulties. He was then rushed to the hospital and got tested positive for COVID-19 unfortunately. He was transferred to the ICU immediately and was put on a strong antibiotics treatment. It was like a rollercoaster : Some days were just so bad for him and some days were a bit better.
On April 6, 2021, the doctor took the decision to transfer Adrian to the pulmonary ward. His situation had worsened and after an examination, the doctor said his lungs were terribly affected and damaged.
On April 21, 2021, the doctor was about to take the decision to perform a tracheotomy on Adrian to allow him to breathe better. Later on that day, Adrian opened his eyes, and all the parameters improved "miraculously" lets say.
On April 23, 2021, Adrian returned home but with the oxygen mask on permanently. 2 days later, he was rushed again to the hospital as his situation got unstable and his blood oxygen level dropped again. He stayed in the internal ward for 2 days then he was transferred to the ICU again. He was put on a ventilator then.
On May 5, 2021, his situation had worsened again: his lungs were already damaged badly and his antibiotics treatment started to fail as a plus; his body stopped responding to it well. He went through a new rollercoaster for about 2 weeks. He wasn't able to breathe without a respirator.
On May 26, 2021, Adrian started getting better and was finally able to breathe for a few minutes without the respirator on. From that point, his situation started improving daily.
On June 2, 2021, Adrian was sent back home but had to keep the oxygen mask on to keep the blood oxygen saturation under control. His situation kept on improving daily.
On June 6, 2021, he restarted his physiotherapies but slowly! The doctors kept checking on him until he was oxygen mask-free after 2 weeks!
On October, Adrian did a full body checkup and thankfully, his lungs improved a lot and are 95% back to normal.
Unfortunately, during all these hard months, Adrian lost a lot of weight as you can see on the pictures! Currently, he has anemia and an extreme iron deficiency. A lot of his equipment need to be renewed as they've been used for years now.
For Christmas, i would like to help Adrian's family as much as i can with all the medical expenses including therapists and new equipment. He has +2000 euros expenses monthly.
I set a goal for this fundraising but any extra money would be appreciated!
Thanks to everyone who helped us to get the wheelchair and the Healy device for him previously! I'm hoping some people will help again by donating and/or sharing!
Adrian, YOU ARE AN AMAZING FIGHTER AND AN IDOL TO LOOK UP TO! Keep on fighting!!
