My name is Silvana, I'm Nicola's aunt and me and his family are starting this fundraising for him, because life didn't treat him well.
In February 2018 he was diagnosed with a huge osteosarcoma on his left leg. He immediately received chemotherapy and he still does receive it until December 2018. The doctors were hoping to be able to safe at least a part of his leg. But in March his leg broke because of the tumor and a amputation of his whole leg needed to be done. He is only 24 years old and up to that date, he was a Ice-hockey player. He is living in Switzerland and he was very active all of his life. To give him back some mobility we want to raise money for a very special wheelchair based on the technology of a segway, where he could ride handsfree and even have a off road kit to be able to explore nature again.
We would definitely appreciate any support you will be able to offer. Nicola is very brave and fights this battle for him and his family. He deserves truly any help to make his young life a bit easier.
If we would be able to raise more money for Nicola then for the wheelchair, this money would go to our second project! Nicola gets a prosthesis for his leg. The one which would enable him to walk nearly like with two legs for a view hours a day! Unfortunately this very special hightech prosthesis is not covered by any insurance and will cost another 80000 SFR. See the video above!
So all the additional money will be used for him and only to reach the best mobility possible!
We thank you in advance
