Time for Tami
Because every second counts!
Our friend Tamara is 30 years young, lives with her partner Robin and their two cats in Mannheim. She suffers from incurable cancer. Tamara has the most aggressive breast cancer known: a triple negative mamma carcinoma (TNBK). This type of cancer is characterized by rapid cell growth, frequent migration and less promising possibilities for finding the right therapy.
In April 2017 Tami received a simple fax with the diagnosis that changed everything – breast cancer. What followed was a series of mistakes, muddles and muck-ups. You can find out more about Tami’s story here…
Tami – power woman and role-model
As Tamara’s friends, we feel the need to repeat what a wonderful person she is and with how much courage, strength and passion she has faced this disease for the last two years and dealt with one setback after the next. She lost her beloved father only four years ago and she has had to spend several weeks in a wheelchair herself because of her rheumatism. She has had to see her dream of starting a family with her partner dashed. But she has born all of this and never lost her smile. She has this amazing ability to see the positive in everything. She’s the strongest person we know. Despite all the bad prognoses, severe pain facing her every day and being constantly unclear about how much time she still has, Tamara enjoys life. Whereas others are paralysed by fear and complain about how life isn’t fair, Tamara just wants to live and is grateful for each day that she continues to live. Grateful, although none of this is her fault and the situation could have been reversed..
What are we collecting for?
The National Tumor Centre in Heidelberg has given a further chemotherapy a 10 % chance of success and would take maximum three months. Her final hope is an innovative but expensive combined therapy from the USA, which is not listet at german health insurances by now. Her application for cost acceptance was rejected. Tamara has already raised an objection. But now she has to pay the incredible sum of 8000 Euros every three weeks. If the therapy shows signs of helping, the health insurance may come round to contributing, but it hasn’t agreed to cover any of the costs.
There is no money left. Her family has already invested tens of thousands of Euros. We want to at least support Tamara’s painful journey financially so that she can focus on her therapy and doesn’t have to deal with a mountain of debt.
