This crowd funding has been set up to help towards the total medical cost of an operation my sister so desperately needs. As a family we can cover over half the cost but we physically have no more money available so cannot make the total needed for the operation. Unfortunately as a family we have had some heart breaking news. We have found out that my sister has a large tumour on the brain.
My sister 'Yohana' currently lives in her native country Eritrea and this country does not have the facilities or technology to carry out the procedure needed to remove the tumour.
We are in talks with the German health service and have had the advice to take Yohana to Turkey to receive the treatment needed. The total cost of the treatment is 60,000 USD. As previously mentioned as a family we can cover a majority of the cost but still need urgent help with the remainder.
Yohana is 24 years old and has one little girl who is four months old. Yohana has always been a happy, loving, caring person. She has desired nothing more than having a family and watching her children grow. Yohana is happily married and has been married for two years. This medical problem has now started to change her appearance, causing severe headaches, memory loss issues, her left hand side of the body is now becoming paralyzed and much more issues. This as anyone could imagine is destroying hers and any parents dream of watching their kids grow and experiencing that love and happiness everyone should feel.
I am pleading with everyone to please help as ever much you would so that my sister can go to Turkey and receive the treatment she so desperately needs.
We as a family are so great full for anyone reading this and caring.
