Story

I AM HOPING TO RAISE £5,000 TO SAVE MY FRIENDS LEG FROM BEING AMPUTATED AND IT IS A RACE AGAINST TIME SHE NEEDS TO HAVE OPERATION BY 20th MAY....... WITH TWO CHILDREN , HER DAUGHTER AGE 3 AND HER SON AGE 5 WHO ARE ADORABLE, HER FAMILY HELPS HER TO LOOK AFTER THEM............... SHES ALSO HAD THE STRESS OF HER DIVORCE. SHE IS SO FULL OF LIFE AND WAS SO KIND TO MY MUM WHO SUFFERS BADLY FROM RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS. I WAS SHOCKED TO HEAR SHE HAD SUFFERED A HORRIFIC LEG INJURY WHEN SHE WAS KNOCKED OFF HER SCOOTER LAST YEAR , AND HAS SPEND MONTHS IN HOSPITAL.

I OFFERED TO HELP HER RAISE £5,000 FOR AN OPERATION WHICH WILL SAVE HER LEG AND GIVE HER SOME MOVEMENT.

HER FAMILY HAVE USED UP ALL THEIR FINANCIAL RESOURCES ON HOSPITAL COSTS WHICH HAVE BEEN IN THERE THOUSANDS, IT IS SO CLOSE NOW WITH ONE FINAL OPERATION NEEDED TO RESTORE MOVEMENT VIA A MUSCLE GRAFT USING PARTS OF HER BODY , THERE IS ONLY ONE DOCTOR IN ATHENS WHO IS A SPECIALIST IN THIS OPERATION......... BUT IT IS A RACE AGAINST TIME.........GETTING AN INFECTION IS A CONSTANT WORRY AS ANY INFECTION NEGATES THE POSSIBILITY OF AN OPERATION.

BEFORE THE GREEK FINANCIAL MELT DOWN HER INJURY WOULD HAVE BEEN DEALT WITH BY THE HOSPITAL IN ATHENS VIA HER INSURANCE PAYMENTS BUT AFTER THE FINANCIAL TROUBLES THE GREEK EQUIVALENT OF NHS SERVICE IS STRAPPED FOR CASH, AND SHES HAD TO GO PRIVATE AS THIS IS WHERE THE CONSULTANTS AND SURGEONS NOW WORK. SHE WOULD HAVE THE OPERATION IN ATHENS AND THE HOSPITAL IS EUROCLINIC........PLEASE PLEASE HELP KORINA MY FRIEND THANK YOU.......ANY DONATION EVEN £1 FROM ALL MY FRIENDS WOULD BE SO KIND AND HELPFUL.......

When you read Korinas story I was so blow away what she has already gone through , 14 operations skin graft after over again and again. This was due to a Bike accident on her way to work. I felt I had to help her as she has been so kind to my mum with her kindness.
