Questo ragazzo nella foto si chiama Tancredi Santangelo, ha 19 anni e una malattia rara che se non curata in tempo lo lascerà in uno stato vegetativo.
Dall’America gli hanno dato l’ok per un’operazione da fare l’11 Settembre e che ha una probabilità di riuscita dell’80%.
Peccato che tale operazione costa 250 mila euro. Quindi come fa questo ragazzo a trovare tutti questi soldi?
Ci stiamo mobilitando in tutta Italia per poter diffondere il link dove fare delle donazioni, anche piccolissime.
Dunque per favore diffondete questo link e se potete fate magari finta di stare comprando uno dei vostri libri preferiti o un dvd e fate una donazione. Anche 5 o 10 euro faranno la differenza.
Voi sapete che qui non ho mai accettato di mettere nessuna pubblicità e non vi ho mai chiesto nulla in tutti questi anni. Ma adesso vi sto chiedendo di esserci. Non per me ma per Tancredi, che merita di vivere una vita come la mia e la vostra. GRAZIE 😊
( ENGLISH VERSION)
Hi, I’m Tancredi Santangelo, I’m almost 19 years old and I’m about to graduate from High School. I live in Floridia, a small town in the province of Syracuse, Sicily (Italy). I was born prematurely at 30 weeks, the second of three twins one of which born dead. Because of an arteriovenous shunt ( https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arteriovenous_malformation) I was born tetraplegic, but thanks to many chirurgical operations I can now walk. At about ten years old of age I was diagnosed with type one Chiari malformation and Syringomyelia ( https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiari_malformation) that was then operated. About three years ago the symptoms returned, and after many checkups It was discovered that the Syringomyelia, now larger and longer than before, came back. After discussing with Italian doctors, and consulting with countless Italian medical structures I have verified that the possibility for a decisive operation is not present; even though the decisive operation is to be done as soon as possible, before the inevitable development of this rare syndrome puts me in a vegetative state at first, and then leads me to a state of death. A few months ago, moved by my will to live, I decided to reach out to the Chiari Institute of New York, highly qualified and specialized in the treatment of this pathology, which through its Primary – Doctor Bolognese – gave me hope. A chirurgical operation with a success rate of 80% ( http://youtu.be/P7KSXppIRXY) could save my life. The operation is due in September 11th, 2019 at the Chiari Institute of N.Y. and it has a cost of 200 000 euros, (227,000.00 USD); To which is to be added the cost of the stay, which will be of about 50 days of necessary postoperative care. I don’t have sufficient financial resources for the necessary costs that life calls me to pay to live with dignity – just like I already did for tetraplegia – and because of this I ask you a little financial contribution to help me live. Thank you.
