Angelika is currently 28 and she has been struggling with numerous illnesses and their outcomes. Initial health concerns started in 2013. It all began with worrying leg pains and leg swelling. After almost 2 weeks in hospital, a diagnosis was formulated: Henoch-Schönlein purpura, which is also known as allergic purpura. It is an autoimmune disease, in the case of which inflammations of small blood vessels can be identified. In 2018, yet another life-changing disease developed in Angelika’s body. It was antiphospholipid syndrome, which is also referred to by professionals as APS. Said syndrome has numerous symptoms that were also identified in the case of Angelika, namely: migraines, nephritis, and below-average laboratory test results e.g. vitamin D3 deficiency. The lady in question has also been dealing with serious eyesight-related problems – the degeneration of macula lutea may cause serious problems in the future. Other ailments include: coagulation disorders, microcytic anemia, Rathke's pocket cyst, duodenitis. The combination of APS and allergic purpura causes serious pains in Angelika’s legs, which in turn makes it very difficult for her to move on her own.
Aside from that, our charge has been also suffering from proteinuria, rhinitis, pharyngitis, also laryngitis and Helicobacter pylori infectionand mild erythematous gastropathy. Furthermore, she has also had some problems with hypertension and recurring depressive syndrome. Angelika would love to become a mother one day. She believes that her dream will come true. While waiting for such a day to come, she satisfies her need for taking care of a baby by means of dolls that are called reborns.
Angelika is capable of taking care of herself thanks to a modest allowance amounting to PLN 780 per month, as well as thanks to her part-time job as a babysitter. She loves her job, but she cannot focus on it in a full-time manner due to her illnesses and constantly changing health condition. She lives in a rented flat, the rent for which, including additional bills, is equal to PLN 1100 per month.
Despite her illnesses, Angelika is full of positive energy and will of life. She is determined not to give up and we want to support her in her struggle.

It is a great motivation to march on, both for us and for the charges of the Foundation. We would like to wholeheartedly encourage you to take part in the fundraiser organized for Angelika.
