arrow

Following an article in a local newspaper on September 7, 2009 in Iasi, Romania (for article in Romanian click HERE) about a nineteen year old girl with pulmonary fibrosis with only 13% of her lungs functioning. The person in cause, Cerasela Mihovici, is dependent on an oxygen concentrator machine, which has to be rented. Cerasela and her family live in a rural area in northeastern Romania, Botosani County, and the family budget is around 100 USD per month.

Through repeated media campaigns, Cerasela is on the waiting list for a lung transplant to be done in Vienna, Austria.
Nonetheless, the acute need for a portable oxygen concentrator machine has led to intermediate the donation of such a machine with the help of a foundation friend, Mrs. Lilly Pierce of Virginia, USA. Mr. Neil Jansson of Washington, D.C. has kindly donated a 12 pound (6 kilograms) portable machine evaluated at over 5,000 USD in the memory of his late wife.

Cerasela received the machine in early November 2009.
