We kindly ask you to join our mutual help campaign of the family, colleagues and friends of Kazimierz Rey, translator / interpreter of French and Polish, from Kraków.
Malignant brain tumour
On 28 February Kazimierz underwent brain tumour removal surgery in Warsaw. The tumour was removed in its entirety, which provides a good starting point for the fight for Kazimierz Rey’s health and life.
After a two-week stay in hospital Kazimierz came back home to Kraków. Histopathological tests confirmed it was glioma – a malignant brain tumour. We are beginning long and cumbersome radio and chemotherapy sessions.
Unfortunately not each form of treatment is reimbursed in Poland, while saving Kazimierz requires the application of all forms of treatment known to medicine. Kazimierz’s income was the main source of supporting his family – his wife and two of his five children, who are still in school. One daughter requires monthly physical therapy and medical care due to spine disease. Kazimierz will not be able to work for a long time (months, maybe years). His wife will not be able to work regularly due to the necessity to provide care for her husband.
How to help?
A campaign is being organised among Kazimierz Rey’s family, friends and translator and interpreter colleagues. Funds are gathered by Stowarzyszenie Ad Astra association, a family friend, which has the status of a public benefit organisation according to the Polish law. Stowarzyszenie Ad Astra as part of its statutory actions will immediately transfer the received funds to help Kazimierz.
