Story

Kasia Przygoda (Kowalik) is one of my best friends. I have known her since we were children. She was due a month before me. I stopped hearing from her and unfortunately the news that I got eventually (which my mum gave me only after my own delivery) is that my friend is in a coma since 10 April 2016. Kasia could not deliver naturally and had to have a c-section. Due to further complications and internal bleeding, Kasia has had lack of oxygen to her brain and went into a coma during the second operation, which was a fight for her life. She gave birth to a beautiful daughter Julia. While I can enjoy being a mother to my 3 month old daughter, she cannot and it is absolutely heartbreaking for me and her family. Kasia was initially placed in an institue called 'Light' in the Polish city of Torun, which is known for helping patients in a coma. As her condition was not improving, her husband did everything to take her home, which he believed would be the best place to stimulate and rehabilitate Kasia. He is now looking after her 24/7. I have visited Kasia and her family a few times already and I knew Kasia was aware that I was there. She cried as I walked in the first time I paid a visit. We all believe she will wake up. But she needs help. She is seen by a rehabilitiation specialist daily and a speech therapist several times a week. She also needs other essentials to keep her healthy and clean. I would appreciate any donations. Absolutely anything will help the family give her the best care and ensure the best rehabilitation. Thank you very much ❤️

    Dear All, thank you SO MUCH for all of your donations. We are currently impatiently waiting on the results of tests on Kasia's brain to see if she qualifies for a brain stimulator surgery. I will post an update as soon as I can. Kochani, dziekuje Wam BARDZO mocno za kazdy grosz. Obecnie niecierpliwie czekamy na informacje z Olsztyna czy Kasia kwalifikuje sie na wszczepienie stymulatora do mòzgu.

    Kochani, Dziękuję Wam bardzo za pomoc. Bardzo się cieszę, że udało się już zebrać ponad £2000. Kwota ta pozwoli rodzinie Kasi na zapewnienie jej miesiàca rehabilitacji, zajęć z logopedà, leków i innych niezbędnych środków potrzebnych do jej pielęgnacji. Wspòlnie z rodzinà Kasi, zbieramy ròwnież pieniàżki w Polsce, majàc nadzieję, że Kasia zakwalifikuje się na operację wszczepienia jej stymulatora do mòzgu. Nadal nie tracimy wiary, że Kasi stan polepszy się dzięki rehabilitacji jakà obecnie otrzymuje i że będzie w końcu mogła być mamà❤️ ❤️ ❤️

    Dear All, Thank you so much for your donations. I am so proud to have raised over £2000. This can buy a month of rehabilitation, speech therapy, care, medications and all other essentials for Kasia. I am also heavily involved raising money in Poland for Kasia, in cooperation with her family, in the hope that she will qualify for an operation of implanting a stimulator to her brain. We are still not losing hope that Kasia will respond to treatment that she is now getting and will be able to be a mother to her beautiful daughter❤️ ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

I am a friend of the mother. We trained acrobatics when we were children and went to the same primary school. I am now also a mother to my beautiful baby daughter Heidi and I am devastated that my friend cannot experience it, that she cannot kiss or cuddle her own baby...
