Tiago Costa is 31 years old and has always been a cheerful, fun and nature lover! Unfortunately, life changed his plans, and he was diagnosed with Leukemia (February 2015). Since that day, that Tiago's life has changed.
Tiago Costa, 31, lives in Leiria with his mother and younger brother. He was always a cheerful, fun and nature lover! He lived life to the fullest, among family, friends, the Tuna of the University, the beach, surfing, climbing ... Tiago did not stop, and he was happy. Unfortunately, life changed her laps and he was diagnosed with Leukemia (February 2015). Since that day, that James' life has changed. For a year he fought against the disease, between chemotherapy and strong medications, he ended up doing the bone marrow transplant and, in a way, defeating Leukemia. The cancer went away, but it took with him the strength, the joy, the patience, the smile of the Tiago. He left us a sad Tiago, weak and still very sick. Still with many needs, many stays in the IPO, much need of support from a mother who fights with the child from the first day. A mother who is alone and has another child, and whose job does not give her enough stability for all the costs a patient like James demands. We have tried hard to help this family survive the disease and the expenses it brings.
Our help can not be here, the needs of this family still exist, and we want to give James a stable and quiet life, so that he can recover as soon as possible and return to being James that we have known all his life, or at least very close to that.
The Present of James (2018):
In September 2017 we received the news that nobody wanted to hear, Tiago entered into coma induced by extensive bilateral pneumonia. Days passed and Tiago did not wake up. When the worst was expected, and after 33 days in a coma, James woke up!
We knew, however, that Tiago's body was fragile, and his recovery would be yet another difficult struggle. Immediately we realized that we could not let him go down again. The option was to put him in a clinical center where his recovery was accompanied in the best way, with physiotherapy and other important care that he could never have at home. Despite the initial improvements, the crises continued, the hospitalizations also, the relapses did not stop. It has been a snowball, Tiago recovers, has a relapse, starts from scratch again .... The family is worn out, it's a brutal weariness!
We want to give Tiago the opportunity to have the best care, the best possible recovery, the opportunity to be followed in the best way. To give Tiago more power to live, from therapies to psychological accompaniment, to what he is entitled to, after 3 years of suffering and an intense struggle unimaginable.
We therefore ask for your help in another crowdfunding so that we can enable the best treatments for Tiago, and for his body to recover once and for all, and to live in peace and without any more worries than those that are already forced.
