Our mother (56 years old) was diagnosed with liposarcoma (malignant soft tissue tumor), grade 1, (pT4) 3 months ago. The tumor is located in the abdomen and occupied over 50% of the abdominal cavity, measuring 20x10x17 cm.

Due to the size of the tumor itself, she underwent emergency surgery to try to remove the tumor. During the operation, the right kidney, adrenal gland, and ovary were removed due to the inseparability of the tumor from these organs, and the diaphragm was scraped because the tumor infiltrated behind it, toward the spine, and toward the vena cava. Due to the proximity of the vein, one part of the tumor near the diaphragm was not removed, and one part of the tumor remained, which is located next to the back muscle and is drawn into the abdominal muscle. During the procedure, 3.40 kg of tumor mass was removed.

Since the tumor was not completely removed during the first operation, it returns and attacks the remaining organs, so our mother needs another operation. In the case of this type of tumor (liposarcoma), the only possibility of cure is surgery, because no type of therapy is effective and cannot destroy the tumor. The operation is very demanding and can only be performed at the Radiochirurgia hospital and is not financially covered by the HZZO system.

The date of the operation is 27.2.2023. The price of the operation is EUR 21,464.60. which is not financially available to us. The costs of the operation are an amount that we do not have ourselves, so we are forced to ask for help through donations.

In addition to all this, Mom is already fighting 2 more battles with diseases. She is fighting the autoimmune disease rheumatoid arthritis, which she has been suffering from for 26 years. The disease makes life difficult for her due to the immobility of her joints and pain, and because of this, her capacity to work is disabled. She has also been fighting heart disease for 10 years when she had a heart attack and underwent heart surgery 5 times and 9 stents installed so she could continue living.

We are aware that this fight will be demanding and that together we will succeed in changing the statistics on rare diseases. We ask all of good will to help us financially to raise the necessary funds.
