Emotional wave of solidarity within 48 hours for the 12-year-old Nikolia from Obrya, Patraswho was diagnosed with a tumor in the area of the right collarbone.
The money needed to immediately undergo surgical removal of the tumor was collected, which costs 81,270 euros.
The operation is scheduled for June 6 and will take place at a special center in Hanover, Germany.
The child’s mother, in her desperate attempt, had set up a stall in the house where they lived in order to secure the money required for an operation which was not needed as within 48 hours all those who raised awareness managed to raise the amount of 85,000 euros and so little Nikolia will fly to Germany on May 29.
Listen to what the mother of 12-year-old Nikolia, Gianna Bakopoulou, said to “Zougla” about the great wave of world solidarity:
Mrs. Gianna Bakopoulou sent a touching message on Facebook to all those who helped:
“Today (i.e. yesterday) after ten whole months I will be able to close my eyes and rest with only one thought that everything will go well in the surgery and not with thousands of thoughts that kept me awake about how to help the little boy my! I thank from the bottom of my heart PRAXI AGAPI who stood by us and helped us, Aris Galiatsatos, Ioanna Xiromeritis, all the patraic and not only news networks, the Teachers’ Association, the parents’ and guardians’ associations and especially the teachers’ and parents’ association as well as the Director Vassilis Spanos of the 1st Primary School of Ovria as well as I.N. Assumption of the Virgin Obryas located in our area and Father Charalambos who stood by me from the first moment as a family as well as the parents of our school, all the friends and acquaintances who helped and finally the most important people from all over Greece apart from the fact that everyone, even though we live in very difficult times with their own backlog, managed to make the impossible possible. I think I have many more to thank but I’m so confused right now. But I promise I will do it in detail in time!!! Thank you very much again.”
