Help Mihail return home!

By Marina | Project Leader


Mihail is from Moldova, a father of two young girls.  In 2016 he was diagnosed with a brain tumor that is generally benign, but in some cases can present as a malignant tumor and grow and spead aggressively.  Unfortunately, Mihail's tumor was behaving atypically and he needed surgery to remove it.  Due to its difficult location, only a partial removal was possible.  Following surgery, Mihail had 30 sessions of radiation therapy to prevent tumor re-growth.  And for 18 months the family could breathe easier as Mihail had no symptoms of disease. 

However, in 2019 Mihail once again began experiencing tumor progression. The local specialists in Moldova rarely see brain tumors like Mihail's and they lacked expertise to attempt total tumor removal.  Mihail and his wife began searching for second opinions abroad.  Nearby, in Germany, they were able to find doctors with experience with his type of tumor and the family traveled there in early 2020, just as coronavirus pandemic struck Europe. This time, Mihail's left eye invaded by the tumor and nearby tissues had to be removed.  Post-surgery Mihail suffered from a stroke and had a difficult recovery, but he is finally turning the corner.  The costs of treatment have increased substantially due to longer than expected treatment, and Mihail's family was very grateful for support from our project. 

We are wishing Mihail quickest recovery possible and would like to thank you for your support.  Thank you for offering helping hand to patients like Mihail who have to travel abroad to have a chance to beat cancer. 

Stay safe!
