Dragi prijatelji,

Naš tata, Tomislav, je prije mjesec dana završio u bolnici zbog visokog tlaka, glavobolje i problema s koordinacijom i ravnotežom. Nakon inicijalnih pretraga CT-a i MR-e ustanovljeno je da se radi o tumorskoj masi na mozgu. Biopsijom je potvrđena dijagnoza glioblastom (GBM) stupanj IV. Riječ je o najzloćudnijem obliku tumora mozga koji je vrlo agresivan, a tijek bolesti je nagao i progresivan. Najćešći simptomi koje prate bolest su vrtoglavice, povraćanje, glavobolje i napadaji. Zbog svoje pozicije, tumor nije operabilan.

Unazad par tjedana, tumor se dodatno povećao i tata više ne može obavljati jednostavne svakodnevne poslove jer se brzo umara i narušena mu je koordinacija lijeve strane tijela i ravnoteža.

Onkološka prognoza je izrazito loša - prema zadnjim podacima Američkog Nacionalnog Udruženja za Tumore, samo 6.8% pacijenata doživi 5 godina nakon postavljanja dijagnoze, a prosječna stopa preživljavanja je između 12 i 18 mjeseci. Osim loše prognoze, liječenje glioblastoma je izrazito skupo. Zahvaljujući napretcima znanosti i medicine, integrativna onkologija, uz preporučeno zračenje (i kemoterapiju) nudi i dodatna rješenja koja istovremeno oslabljuju tumor i osnažuju metaboličke procese u organizmu da se sam izbori protiv tumora.

Neke od tih metoda dostupne su i u Hrvatskoj, a uključuju autohemotransfuziju ozona, onkotermiju, hiperbaričnu terapiju kisikom te netoksične antikancerogene lijekove poput visokih doza vitamina C, kurkumina, itd.

Cijena jednog takvog tretmana za mjesec dana iznosi 25.000kn - što je iznos koji nama dugoročno nije dostupan.

Uz sve to, tati je propisana posebna onkološka prehrana koja od njega zahtijeva visoku predanost, vojnu disciplinu i nabavku kvalitetnih, organskih namirnica te suplementiranje brojnim vitaminima, mineralima, i naravno, onkološkim lijekovima.

S obzirom da je njegov kapacitet za rad onemogućen, a troškovi cjelokupnog liječenja se procjenjuju na iznose koje mi sami nemamo, primorani smo tražiti pomoć kroz donacije.

Svjesni smo (i nadamo se) da će ova borba biti maraton i da ćemo zajedno uspjeti promijeniti statistiku.

Hvala svima!

Dear friends,

About a month ago, our father, Tomislav, ended up in the hospital due to high blood pressure, headaches and troubles with coordination and balance. After the initial CT and MRI scans, the doctors suspected a brain tumor. A biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of a glioblastoma (GBM), grade IV. GBM is a malignant type of a brain tumor, very aggressive and fast-spreading. Common symptoms include seizures, headaches, nausea, vomiting and memory loss. According to the current opinion, the tumor is non-operable because of its position.

It the last few weeks, the tumor has grown, and our dad lost the ability to walk and to complete simple everyday chores.

The prognosis is bad - according to the latest data by the American Brain Tumor Society, only 6.8% patients live 5 years after the diagnosis, and the average survival rate is between 12 and 18 months. Besides the devastating prognosis, glioblastoma is also one of the more expensive cancers to treat. Thanks to advances in science and medicine, integrative oncology, in addition to the recommended radiation (and chemotherapy) offers additional solutions that simultaneously weaken the tumor and strengthen metabolic processes in the body to fight against the tumor.

Some of these methods are available in Croatia, and include ozone autohemotherapy, regional hyperthermia, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and non-toxic anticancer drugs such as high doses of vitamin C, curcumin, etc.

Monthly cost of one such treatment is $3500 - the amount that is not accessible to us long-term.

In addition to that, he was prescribed a special oncological diet that requires high dedication, military discipline and the purchase of quality, organic food, together with supplementation, and of course, oncology drugs.

Given that he can't work anymore, and the cost of the entire treatment is estimated at amounts we do not have, we are forced to seek help through donations.

We are aware (and hopeful) that this fight will be a marathon and that together we will be able to change the statistics.

Thank you to everyone.
