Leukemia has attacked my father. This vicious, unforgiving and slow killer has decided to rid me of one of the most important people in my life. After months of kemo, suffering through much worse than just not being able to sleep from open bleeding wounds in my fathers insides, burnt completely from all the radiation, melting away his body and mind, the only option is transplantation.
My brother and I were both 50% matches. I was chosen, being older, being somehow more compatible. There is a shimmer of hope that I now carry within me, to save the person who gave me life.
We have a fighting chance now. We need to travel to Turkey, as the facilities in the hopeless country we are originally from (Bosnia), are not covering what is needed. Having been through war 20 years ago, surviving the nightmare which was the Bosnian war, with rivers of blood and death, now this illness is supposed to take him away?
Please help us. We need the funding for the operation, traveling and living costs, as well as the recovery medication.
Please help me save my father.
