HomeLess Friend In Italy

Update posted by Keith Biggers On May 28, 2018

She is down to maybe 50 pounds. Yes very bad. Her doctor said today she needs to get off the street now. He has a clinic for rehab which also includes food and bed for 150 euros (175 US dollars) each week. He normally charges 400 each week but he knows she is in crtical life condition.

I have no words. I know she needs help today. I am not sure she will last 2 weeks at this rate of decline. My heart breaks daily. She is recuperating from succesful thyroid surgery (caused worse weight loss along with severe breathing problems) but doctor is worried about infections being on the dirty and wet and hot streets.

She is tired and hungry and homeless. She needs therapy in a gym for her cancer and rest from a recent thyroid operation for several months to recuperate. I have no funds to give her, and yet she still hangs on. She does not have long to live at his rate.

No friends in Rome. No family in Rome. My heart breaks daily.

My friend tieid to jump off a bridge but was rescued from the water by a man who bought her a blanket and a sandwich. She decided to not hurt herself again, but she is still losing weight on the streets. She ate on Easter, April 1st and had a place to stay for the evening. This is not the norm. Food and lodging are avaiable from the city for 35 euros a day but a cost still that poor homeless people cannot afford. She also needs regular therapy becasue of her cancer at the current cost of 190 euros every month but could be higher at any time. Thank you.

My friend has a thyroid condition and needs an inmmediate operation in Sicly. There are no costs for the operation except for 380 euros for round trip to Sicily and back. Also expenses for room and food for 2 months per the doctor to recuperate.Best estimate is 300 euros plus for this room and board. She is still on the streets of Rome.

My friend says she only needs 2000 euros for her funeral in the chapel where her son was buried who died from disease last year. She wants to take her life today. All I know. I am beside myself.
