The beautiful mother of the three children, Rasa Vaitekunienė, does not pick up the words. However, it is difficult for a woman not only to be diagnosed with stage 4 cancer four years ago, but also because of the side-effects of treatment – it has become difficult for a woman not only to speak, but also to drink and eat.
Approximately 10 years ago, a woman felt that her mouth had a sensitivity – with time it started to hurt and, in order to maintain her smooth jaw, R. Vaitekunienė would have had to make more and more effort. The 47-year-old lady did not suspect that it could be a serious illness.
However, only after about six years of medical searches – the results of the biopsy showed nothing, and in the woman's mouth suffered a more serious and painful ulcer – in 2014 the woman was diagnosed with thrombocytopaenic carcinoma inflammatory in stage 4 (neck cancer – aut.past.
R. Vaitekunienė was prescribed chemotherapy. Then there was a one and a half year remission (disease progression was stopped – aut.past.), And in 2016 the disease returned. Now, doctors say the woman's condition is stable, but the interlocutor does not agree with her – it's getting worse. Asked why there are no written medical papers for additional medical recommendations for medical treatment, the woman affirmed the Doctor Consul conclusions by Thursday morning.
All chemotherapy techniques have already been tested. I was irradiated 32 times, "said the woman, adding that the last time chemotherapy treatment lasted for 14 months and is no longer possible. Radiation with cancer cells also caused side effects.
"There is no nasal septum, so I can barely drink, because everything passes through the nose, I have to push it." It's also difficult to talk, "I have to eat before consistency, I'm good at pain medication" , explains women aged 47.
Sunday night, a woman told her story about Facebook's illness. "At that moment we had a lot to survive, but anyway … Despite all the things I want to live without reason, the doctors have tested everything that was possible and I thank them! Unfortunately, today I have no treatment in Lithuania. I'm just ashamed to ask for your help, but … I just want to have a Christmas table for my three children in these, others and even next year. If you have the opportunity and I will be grateful for your prayers … My account number: Race Vaitekūnienė, LT727300010001748931, Swedbank. In the destination section, be sure to enter: for treatment, "wrote R. Vaitekūnienė, who shared the extract from the medical file.
The woman said on Wednesday a portal that photodynamic therapy was performed in Germany. Injecting a special fluid into the vein, cancerous cancer cells nourish it, and then the laser destroys those cancer cells, "explains the interlocutor in a language that can be understood by people who do not have medical studies." The treatment would cost about 12,000. at the beginning of January. Until then, I had to file several documents, I did not sign treatment contracts because I did not have the money. " In saying these words, in the eyes of a woman, there is a tear of tears. I'm glad they're not lucky.
"Until Wednesday, people have already donated more than half of the amount needed.When I saw the sum on the phone screen, I was shocked." The unknown and close people are united and paying money for my treatment, "- the beauty of the people is surprised by the woman. According to the interlocutor, he earlier attempted to sacrifice sufferers and financial support for compatriots, but he never thought that such help would be needed.
People's generosity has become the biggest Christmas gift. Maybe I can see how an eighth grade boy will finish school.
Three – two old-aged and 13-year-old son – Mother says that for good hearts she will stir up and infect candles. And she thinks that only one woman – a husband who left the family after learning about his wife's illness – only needs support to fight the disease.
"Let's live from being able to benefit from invalidity and subsistence allowances, which, however, earns the daughter. I devote a lot of money to dietary supplements, so the body does not leave too much room for chemotherapy and limited food choices. I really want to have rice, but I can not eat – I'm afraid of it, they hurt my mouth. So I have to carefully choose the food, "says the woman, she feels relatively good at this time, but heals the cheek and jaw tissue.
Guess what factors a woman caused this illness is unlikely to make senseless. However, R. Vaitekūnienė lost even more close people, whose lives were endemic to various types of oncological diseases – mothers, fathers, grandparents, aunts. Most often, oral cancer is a problem for smokers and alcohol users, but we have never had such harmful habits. Thousands of factors can cause this disease, "says the woman.
At the end of the conversation, wishing to successfully overcome the disease, R. Vaitekunienė's voice was overwhelmed by the wisdom of hope: "The generosity of people has become the greatest Christmas gift. Perhaps I will see how an eighth grade boy will finish school .
