Gabriela's wish to become a doctor
Organized by: Gabriela Iulia
Hi! My name is Gabriela. I have just turned 20 years old and I am already in my third year of Medicine School in Bucharest, Romania. I don't know what are my chances to get any help from this site but it worths trying..My sister suffers from a rare autoimmune disease called Myastenia Gravis (there is no cure for this yet), my parents are not with me in Romania, because they had to leave somewhere else in order to afford supporting both of us and my only wish, since I was 9 years old, was to go to Medicine School in order to discover and cure whatever caused the illness of my older sister (I know, childish, but it affected me and my family in a way that I can not really describe with words..). Now I am in this position because I need 2600 $ to pay my college taxes that my parents can not afford anymore. I know what you are thinking..'why don't you work, so that YOU, by yourself, can afford it' ..well..I tried to, I really did..but my schedule at the college and at the hospitals just don't let me.. I am there from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m...because here the system is not really organised and everybody complains about it..but I am just trying to make a living with what I have and with what I am receiving from my parents, but unfortunately, it does not help me enough to pay my Medicine School, even though I know they are doing everything they can.. Please help me if you are reading this..I hate the thought that this world is all about the money when we could focus on ourselves, our goals and on discovering more and more about everything..but here I am trying to get some help from someone because I just don't really know how to get through this..please understand us and please help us.
