Please read this. It's very important. Dear people, Sorry for bothering you, but it's really important to me. Hope always dies the last. That's why I brought myself to address you for help. I am the only daughter in the family. I am nineteen. Although I am a first-year student of architecture specialty, I can't study so far, as for already one year and half owing to the illness I am in Vilnius Santariskes University Hospital. My diagnosis is acute lymphoblastic leukemia; pre-B, 1st bone marrow and CNS relapse. The ALL pre-B, CALLA + was diagnosed in September 1998. As it is hard to understand all the medical description of my diagnosis, please find the exact characteristic in the end of my letter. I am treated with chemotherapy. After each course I feel extremely bad, as chemotherapy emaciates my young organism very much. Bone marrow transplantation with the help of donor is necessary to me by all means. Such operations when there is no donor and he can be a brother or sister are not performed in Lithuania. If such an operation is not performed to me, my life as doctors forecast may be over in three years. Operations of such character are performed in European countries. But a lot of means is necessary for that. Although my both parents are working, we will never be able physically to collect such a sum of money that may be necessary for performing the operation. (If anybody reading this letter could make a donation of even a little part (be it one dollar or so), I would be very grateful for your understanding and help. I beg you, don't be indifferent to my disease, don't take away from me the last hope to enjoy life, to see the spring sun not only through the hospital windows, some time if it will be destined to experience the most wonderful woman's feeling - motherhood: You can find more information at: www.kalnieciai.lt./zr/ http://zaneta-rut.tripod.com/ As the proverb says:" alone you are nothing, together we are all:" My diagnosis is acute lymphoblastic leukemia; pre-B, 1st bone marrow and CNS relapse.
