August 11, 2016. Maithili is diagnosed with DIPG, a rare tumor that affects 2 to 3 Belgian children each year. An aggressive disease found at the base of the brain. The verdict: only 9 months to live. A battle against time that has been going on now for a year. A year in which Maithili has fought hard.
She’s still fighting, but now her body has become resistant to most available treatments. But there is hope: a revolutionary, successful procedure in Mexico. Price? 70,000 euros. Your income or status shouldn’t determine your chances of survival. And yet it seems to be the case.
The system has given up on her chances of healing. Belgian doctors don’t see a way forward. Relief and financial institutions refuse to intervene. Maithili’s parents have already given everything they can to save her. Even selling their personal belongings.
Help Maithili and make a donation to BE09 0682 4746 9457 mentioning the name “Brandhome foundation vzw.”
