Hello, my name is Gica Pâslaru and my niece, Maria Angela has unfortunately been diagnosed in 2019 with one of the worst diseases possible at only 20 years old - cancer. Her form of cancer is a rare bone cancer, an aggressive tumor which developed on her upper maxilla. For an year and a half she has been spending her precious youth within hospitals. Back in our home country, Romania, where she has been diagnosed, she received no chances of recovery or survival, intially about a month to live. We did not let this bring us down though and luckily after contacting different clinics in Germany we have finally gotten some hope from Uniklinikum Ukd Dusseldorf. There the real struggle began for us and especially for her because as of now Maria has gone through no less than: 164 hours of chemotherapy, 168 hours spent on the operating table, 30 surgeries in less than 8 months and 17 days of coma where she was given 10% chances of survival and then carbon ions and proton therapy in Heidelberg and Essen. Amid all these there have been many complications, infections, sleepless nights. With enormous strength and motivation and with the aid of a fantastic and dedicated medical team at the clinic, Maria has powered through all this pain and is now on her way to recovery. But this was just the first chapter unfortunately as all these interventions have left her young body scarred, in order to remove the tumor, the surgeries required the extremely invasive maxilesectomy intervention. All of her orbit has been removed resulting in losing her right eye and half of her face. Her right maxilla has been removed and replaced with a flap extracted from her left leg. She is now in need of constant visits to the clinic in Dusseldorf and many tests (CT's MRI's blood tests etc) to ensure that there are no further health complications. In mid 2021 it's expected that she will start her facial reconstruction surgeries to repair the damage caused by the disease and multiple interventions. Unfortunately this disease is extremely rare and extremely aggressive and it involves a lengthy process of recovery and big financial investments. She is now 22 years old and it is extremely difficult to deal with such a disease and the aftermath of it as more than 50% of her body is currently covered in scars. We are currently trying to raise money for the upcoming treatments, tests, medication and all the side expenses surrounding them and also for the preparation of next year's facial reconstruction surgeries. These are some bank accounts where people can also donate in case any other issues with the gofundme are present RO82RNCB0071078263220002 ( EUR ) RO12RNCB0071078263220001 ( RON ) Titular-Holder ( Pâslaru Cezar ) . We thank you a lot for your patience and for your help, Gica Pâslaru.
