Tymi słowami zwracamy sie o pomoc dla 7 letniej Laury N. , która wraz z rodzicami przyleciała do Houston, aby rozpocząć leczenie w klinice dr. Burzyńskiego. Miesiąc temu u dziewczynki rozpoznano nowotwór mózgu pod nazwą DIPG. Ze względu na rodzaj i umiejscowienie guza, jego operacyjne usunięcie jest niemożliwe. Jedynie tzw. terapia celowana może dać jej […]

“The world of human suffering somehow unceasingly summons a different world: the world of human love …”

~ Pope John Paul II

Laura is a beautiful, smart and compassionate 7 year old girl. She enjoys swimming, soccer, reading books, playing with animals and spending time with family and friends.  Recently, Laura was diagnosed with a brain tumour ( Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma), known in the medical world as DIPG. It is a rare, inoperable and basically untreatable brain stem tumour that would take her life in months.

Her parents, Janusz and Mira, are an amazing couple whose lives got shattered in an instant. Laura is their only child and their whole world. They couldn’t believe that this is happening to their little girl; they were hopeful that the doctors made a wrong diagnosis and went for a second opinion. Unfortunately, this diagnosis was confirmed. Words cannot explain the feelings of hopelessness, frustration, and terror they felt when they had to be faced with the truth.

Janusz and Mira are not giving up hope! They have taken Laura to The Burzynski Clinic in Houston, Texas. This clinic has seen significant improvement in patients facing similar diagnosis as Laura, using alternative therapies not available in Canada. However, the treatment is very expensive. The initial visit costs $25,000 and each month after is $30,000.

The whole family will be in the US for at least 3 months, perhaps longer. Living arrangements have consisted of a room in a local church. They hope to move into a motel/hotel shortly. However, as you can imagine, the costs are increasing and the financial burden is numbing. This kind of medication is not covered by any insurance. They need our help!  We are very grateful for each and every dollar donated. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

This is our appeal and a petition to give generously and pray earnestly for Laura! Each and every initiative is priceless because it saves her life.
