My name is Beata and my entire life changed on 26 September when I was diagnosed with a very aggressive breast cancer. In my case it is the triple-negative type, which means it will not respond to the innovative treatments in use for other breast cancer types. The treatment I have been prescribed includes 20 weeks of chemotherapy and surgery followed by further chemo- or radiotherapy.
Since very recently, in some countries, including in the EU (e.g., Belgium, Germany, France), the immunotherapy drug is being combined with the standard chemo treatment, which significantly increases survival rates and decreases the risk of tumor recurrence. This drug is called Keyruda (permulizumab) and unfortunately it is not yet reimbursed in case of breast cancer in the Polish health system (it is already funded for patient with lung and skin cancer, melanoma).
I am an active person, I love traveling and sport, especially volleyball. For the last three years I have been devoted to raising my son Jurek who means the world to me. I am just 43 years old and have so many plans and dreams, but above all I want to be a mummy for my son.
I will use the collection to buy the 16 doses of Keytruda recommended by my doctors to be taken before and after the surgery. The price of one dose is 15,500 PLN (around €3,500). As you can see, I need a significant amount of money very promptly to start the immunotherapy alongside my pre-surgery treatment.
Thanks to my doctors I started the chemotherapy very quickly, within 10 days after the diagnosis. I am now after my first chemo treatment. I am very grateful to my family and close ones for being there for me and for all their support.
If you could support my collection, I will be immensely thankful!
