This would normally be a hard thing to do..because I don't like to ask for anything..but this time...I have to do it because it might save a beautiful young girl's life. Her name is Oana and she used to be my school friend. Oana is a beautiful, smart, kind young woman who's life is so precious for all of us...herself, her family and all her friends are living a nightmare since we found out that Oana has got cancer. Oana has been given a wrong diagnosis last year, went through a surgery that made her more ill, a mistake made by the doctors that nearly ended her life,we were so close to losing her..but thanks to a kind lady who heard about Oana,she had the chance to go to Viena and be treated by some very good doctors in a private hospital. But as you know private hospitals are not cheap and this is her only chance. The cost of her treatment is around 150000 euros...her family doesn't have that kind of money, we don't have them either...all her friends and even people who don't know her have donated and shared her story...but we are still nearly 70000 euros short...her family has already spent everything they had...but the costs are so high..that was not even close to cover that sum.Oana has pancreatic cancer...she is in so much pain, she goes through so much but she is a fighter..and I would like to believe she is not alone in this fight..I would like to believe that she will live to wear a wedding dress, to be a mum, to raise a family and be happy. She is only 29 years old...she hasn't lived enough..please help me give her a better chance...don't let death take a young life.
