Dear friends, we are opening a fundraising campaign for Alboaei Melisa-Estera, a little girl of only 2 years old from Buteni village, Arad county who suffers from herpetic encephalitis. Melisa’s illness started at 8 months with convulsions, after she had convulsions, the parents were sent from one hospital to another with the little girl, until she ended up being intubated for 9 days at the Louis Țurcanu hospital in Timisoara, and in as a result of the investigations, she was unfortunately diagnosed with a terrible disease: herpes viral encephalitis.
Herpes encephalitis caused by HSV-1 occurs rarely, is fatal and generally occurs in immunocompromised individuals or newborns. Viral encephalitis is characterized by sudden onset of fever, headache, drowsiness, numbness and rapid onset of coma.
Although she is only 2 years old, Melisa has spent a lot of time in the hospital, she is currently undergoing physiotherapy treatment and regularly goes for check-ups to be kept under medical supervision. Melisa can’t walk and is fed with a probe, because of this someone has to stay with her all the time. She also has an 8-year-old brother, and the costs of the disease are too high for her parents.
