[English version]

Teissir is a 43  year-old, dynamic young woman, with her husband and their 3 kids, Yosri (14), Yosef (10) and Mechket (7). She is covered by the tunisian Health Insurance system.

During a routine exam in February 2021, Teissir was diagnosed . This is an invasive and aggressive cancer, with an unpredictable development that needs to be handled as quickly as possible in a specialized facility.

The Medical Center Ibn Khaldoun  (MCIK) in Tunisia, was recommended by her tunisian caricinologist and the operation is scheduled to take place there on the rather possible. Unfortunately, to this day, the request for coverage of the operation and treatment costs (EUR 35,000, approx. US$ 43,000) is pending and may not be approved by the Tunisian Health Authority.

Delaying the operation would greatly reduce her chances of a successful recovery.

Because we care a great deal, we have decided, with Teissir’s approval, to create this “piggy bank” (supporting fund) to help finance the procedure and give it the best possible odds of success. The money will go directly to the MCIK to fund the operation.

Time is of the essence and every bit helps. Teissir and her husbund are facing an unexpected financial challenge and would be extremely grateful for your support: no amount is too small. Spreading the word around will also help reach more participants and this can make a big difference.

Thank you very much for your kind help.
