Even though Gabriella comes from a very humble family, they are unable to pay for her surgery that varies from 10 to 20 thousand reais which would be the same as 2,594.96 euros, the doctor who takes care of Gabi offered not to charge for the surgery because he was touched by the fact that she is 20 years old and a 4-year-old daughter, but because she does not have a health insurance, she would have to pay the private hospital and the anesthesiologist and her team for a new surgery that needs to be done as soon as possible. Gabriella's mother has already gone to court asking for help at home, after her sister had to leave her job because Gabriella demands care 24 hours a day and her young daughter cries when she sees her mother, which makes the care process even more difficult. Gabriellas mother works part-time with a salary in Brazil that she could only pay the bills and some transport in case gabriella needs it. Today we are trying to raise the amount of 30 thousand reais which would be equivalent to 5 thousand euros for Gabriella's treatment, after all she had to stop her physiotherapy and speech therapist as our city is stopped by the coronavirus and this harms Gabriella's case a lot. She is a high-risk patient and for that we would need a physiotherapist and phonoaudiologist at her house 3 times a week, which would cost 5,600 reais the same as 865.47 euros. This would be the 6 to 7 month treatment package, until Gabriella managed to get free treatment from the government, which can take around 6 months to 1 year to receive an answer back. I really ask with all my heart to help us get Gabriella out of this. My family and I are very close to their family and my parents saw gabriella and her brother and sister grow up with me and my sisters from when we were just kids. They are very humble people who have gone through a lot of suffering and are feeling unable to cure Gabriella because she has no money. My family is collecting basic food baskets, personal hygiene kits and medicines for Gabriella, but the expenses are very high and 30 thousand reais or 5,000 euros in Brazil, would take a lifetime for Gabriella's mother to collect. My sister is talking to the hospitals so that we can make the cash payment and be able to start the process as soon as possible for the surgery, to reduce the chances of total paralysis of her body. I found a physiotherapist to treat her in her home and who has also been so kind as to give Gabriella a big discount.
Guys I will leave the photos of Gabriella at the end of the video, I will leave my bank account for deposit, after all it is me and my family who are transferring the money for Gabriella's care so we can pay the hospital without a delay. I promise to prove with invoices, photos and updates of Gabriella and all the help being received.
Even the smallest donation can help go towards helping save her life! I count on the help from all of you! I know it is a difficult time for everyone, I am not working myself, but I believe that for the best we can try a little more. I understand completely if you cannot help towards the donation, so then I ask for even if you help to spread this message so that others may be able to help and in that way you are helping also. Thank you for your time and your attention and I hope everyone is keeping safe during these difficult times. God bless....
