Recklinghausen. Horror diagnosis for a father from the Ruhr area!

Paul (name changed) from Recklinghausen had just successfully passed his master craftsman examination and wanted to get started professionally. But then he was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer with metastases in the lungs and liver.

The father of a young daughter from the Ruhr area now mainly worries about his child. “I have to be there for her and by her side as she grows up and help her find her place in this world. You love, support, comfort. “

How is he supposed to explain to his daughter that her papa is sick and may soon be gone? Hoping to see his daughter finish school, get married and have children of her own, Paul fights for his life.

He is currently undergoing chemotherapy and then an eight-week radiation treatment. He already shaved off his hair to forestall the hair loss. But the side effects of the therapy wear out his strength.

He is also psychologically stressed: Worrying about his daughter, he can no longer work, is considered an “early retirement”.

Only so-called conventional medical immunotherapy can save the life of Paul from the Ruhr area. But that of all things is not recognized by the health insurance, so that the costs are not covered.

Paul has to be helped and we are trying everything in our power to at least alleviate the financial worries a little. “
