Charity campaign for Tjaša Likar

Dear members, dear members.

After to a successful fundraising campaign for Jakob our sense of charity has reawakened (girls, thanks for the call). This time we would like to help Tjaši Likar, who found herself in serious medical trouble. She is a pleasant and positive girl who only wants the hope that her future will be shaped by herself, not by her illness.

Tjaša suffers from myelodysplastic syndrome. A disease of the bone marrow that occurs in more than 80% in the population older than 60 years and that affects the formation of at least one type of blood cell. In its worst form, it can lead to leukemia. Read her story on her website waterlily.si or on hers FB pages.

From Tjaša's website…

"After five days, I just get a diagnosis. The doctor says they feared the worst, leukemia. However, there is something else on my "label", something for which the first days you are filled with endless thoughts, I didn't even know the real name. Myelodysplastic syndrome. A disease of the bone marrow that occurs in more than 80% in the population older than 60 years and that affects the formation of at least one type of blood cell. In its worst form, it can lead to leukemia. Of course, during the first month I asked myself several times if, at 27 years old, I really am one of those younger patients who find themselves in the other 20%, but then I soon realized that it would really be necessary to take action. The only possible treatment in Slovenia is a bone marrow transplant, which can bring extremely serious consequences, including (ironically) myelodysplastic syndrome or leukemia, permanent organ damage or worse. Personally, the most painful thing for me was the fact that I could never be the biological mother of our child. My boyfriend and I also went through the process of storing genetic material, but it didn't turn out very well. The body chooses what is more important to it at the moment and invests energy there, the gynecologist explained.
