** Andrei has left this world this afternoon :(  I really wanted him to get better and had so many hopes. Unfortunately life had other plans for him. Thank you very much to all of you who kept him in your prayers and who helped any way you could. I appreciated it and he did too. Thank you very much.

May his soul rest in peace :pray:


I've never done this before. But I've seen it happen happen here a lot of times and I've helped others as I could. Even if it was only by spreading the word.

Now I'll you to do this for me too. I need you to at least spread the word of the story I'm about to tell you.
I come from a small town in Romania, it has only about 6.000 people or so. Maybe less. I've grown up there and even if I wasn't the type to have a lot of friends around me, it wasn't hard to know the most of the kids my age since the town is quite small. Mostly, nothing happens there, it's very quiet. But when something out of the ordinary happens, everyone hears about it, talks about it. Unfortunately, sometimes they talk more than they should, but that's not the point.

The point is that a boy (Andrei) of my age (23) has been recently diagnosed with leukemia and it's pretty bad. Actually, it's bad. He's in the hospital now, receiving some type of treatment, hopefully he'll respond so that later on the doctors might operate on him and fix everything that needs to get fixed. I don't know him very well, I'm not part of his closest friends, but I don't it even matters in this kind of situations. What matters is that he needs help. A lot of help. He needs support, positive thoughts to keep him going, and he needs a lot of money in order to pay for his medicine, the hospital bills and all the treatment. Everything costs around 100.000 Euro. That's a lot of money for everyone. I can't even start to imagine how much that is and what could one buy with all that money. I can only imagine that that amount of money could save his life and give him a second change. Even if everyone from my town would donate 1 or 2 euros it still wouldn't be enough. That's where you come in. You, with the big and generous hearts who are out there and have the possibility to help others. It doesn't matter the amount, what matters is that you helped as you could, what matters is that at least you tried.

What amazed me is the support of his friends. They have done so much in the couple of weeks since he's in the hospital. Andrei's mother was most of the time with him in the hospital, his father had to take care of all the paperwork and other things and his friends have organized all sort of events, have spread the words as they could to help raise the money that their friend needs so much now. By now they only have a couple of thousand euros and everyday he spends a certain amount on medicine and everything else he needs in the hospital.  His life actually depends on that money. Having such great friends gives you strength to fight, but without the treatment, well…I don't want to think about that.

They have opened two bank accounts at Raiffeisen Bank:
RO55RZBR0000060015060981 – account in Lei (for those who want to donate and are from Romania)
RO27RZBR0000060015061000 – account in Euro.

As I told you before, every act of your kindness helps. Spread the word, mention him in your prayer, donate if you have the possibility and you'll be thanked. If not by him and his family, life will thank you in some way for your generous act. His life depends in you, it's in your hands to reach out to him and help!

We're here to help each other in times of trouble, we're here to make the life's of others a little easier to bare, we're here to bring a smile on the faces of those who have forgotten how to smile, we're here to make the burden of others a little easier, we're here to share the joys and sorrows, we're here for each other. I believe in the power of humanity when they all fight for the same purpose. I believe that magic can happen if we all help in making it happen. Let's help Andrei believe in magic, too.

Here's a song that inspired me to choose the title of this journal:…

I'm so sorry for his family... seems like the fight was hard to win.
Sad to hear this story ended up this way - I've got similar things running in my family.
Really frightening how fast such things can go.
Rest in Peace Andrei and all the best for his family!

...thanks for the feature Klaudia!

I am very sorry to read this news, Klaudia. It sounds like he put up a valiant fight and was surrounded by people, even people who didn't know him well, who loved and believed in him. That had to make his passing easier for him and his family. I hope he has found peace.

You have a huge heart for caring for someone you didn't know that well. I wish things had been different, but you are right--life had other plans for him. We all feel the loss though. Questions abound in our minds about what might have been in his life, but we have to remember that he may have done what life wanted him to do and called him home as life will eventually call us all home.

Rest in Peace Andrei--you earned it.

I think that the most shocking thing was how fast it all happened. This week it would have been a month since he found out about his illness :(
I knew him more while I was in high school, but when I started the university I moved to another town and basically my entire life moved here. Besides, you never know when you're gonna need all the help you can, so why not help others while you can, right?

thank you very much for your words.
