Kiki is facing the most important match of his career!
Kiki Schneider is a professional tennis coach who’s been working on WTA and ATP tour for the last 10 years, coaching players like Ana Konjuh, Borna Čorić, Bernarda Pera and recently Olga Danilović. Kiki is the person who lives and breathes tennis.
Two years ago, during the peak of his work with Borna Čorić (ATP nr 12 at that time) Kiki was diagnosed with colon cancer. After one of the toughest surgeries in the world of medicine, the whole affected area was removed and chemotherapy was not needed. Doctors told him that recovery will be long and hard, but Kiki as a fighter knew that the only way to get better is to be proactive. His passion for tennis is well known and the only thing on his mind was to get back on a tennis court. His biggest motivation was his wife and 4 kids.
Six tough months later, to everyone’s surprise, Kiki was up and running, doing what he loves the most, coaching tennis.
Only six weeks ago Kiki was at his best, coaching successfully at Australian Open where he felt severe pain in his abdominal region and was hospitalised in Melbourne. After coming back to Croatia, he underwent two surgeries where doctors discovered cancer on his abdomen. This time it’s not possible to remove it but instead it needs to be treated with chemotherapy.
Kiki is now out of hospital recovering and gathering strength (he lost 15 kilos), to be able to handle tough procedures that are in front of him.
Here is the recovery plan:
⁃ In 15 days test for Pet CT
⁃ starting the chemotherapy process (after CT we will know how long, but for now minimum 6 months)
The reason we are reaching out is financial support for Kiki’s medical treatment and recovery process as well as to help his family (wife and 4 kids) that is completely financially dependent on him. Kiki has health insurance, but as we know not everything will be covered. We will keep all the medical bills and most important monthly cost transparent and public, so we can all see where the money is going. Exact cost of the medical treatment is still to be defined after the Pet CT test.
Dear friends, thank you for taking time to read this and thank you for any kind of help. Is it a thought, a message or a financial help, it’s all very much needed.
