The Story

Imagine, if you can, you are a highly educated and brilliant professional, and IT Engineer, married with children, a happy home, life is good.

Suddenly, you are struck with MS, a devastating auto-immune disease. In short order you lose your job, your mobility, you are confined to a wheel chair, with little hope of recovery.

Paralyzed, you are without financial resources, and cannot even bathe yourself without help. It seems your life is over at age 50.

This is Algis, a dear friend of ours. He is a Belgian national, living in Taiwan since the late 1980’s, when he came to work on the first mass transit system on the island. Once athletic and a motorcycle racer, Algis must now rely on the support of friends and sometimes, strangers, for his basic needs.

[Meet Algis Here] [中文] [À Propos d'Algis]

Now, a window of possibility has opened. With the latest developments in stem-cell therapy, he could be cured and restored to health and mobility. Yes, he can get his life back.

Good News. With the help of friends, Algis has been accepted into a program of cutting-edge stem-cell treatment and the only thing standing in his way is US$30,000 to pay for the therapy. He is now awaiting a 3-week course of stem-cell transplants at an international hospital that can give him back his life. Time is of the essence. His chances for a full recovery will never be better than now.

The sooner he gets treatment, the more likely he will have a complete recovery. Many miracles have already happened that demonstrate the effectiveness of stem-cell therapy in treating multiple sclerosis. Your support can make that happen for him now.

With your help, Algis can recover his health and go on to make a difference in the world. His dream is to recover and go on to help others. We, a group of close friends, are opening our hearts and our wallets to help Algis. I’m wondering if you will help us help Algis to achieve his dream of recovery and a new life. And, we are asking that you do that now.

Why should you help? Because we all want to make a difference. We can all do something greater than zero to reach out and touch this person, to give him back his life. It only takes a little help from a lot of people to make this happen.

Were you in his position, wouldn’t you be willing to humble yourself and accept the support of strangers to regain your life? Would you?

As Friends of Algis, we humbly and respectfully ask you to help us raise the money to make this happen now. We ask you to donate whatever you can, now.

And, we ask your help to share this possibility with others and encourage them to also give what they can. Your influence and your network can also make a difference.

Because, with enough networking and support, Algis will soon be able to get the life-saving treatment he desperately wants and needs. His life is waiting and we ask you to bring it to him with your contribution.

Will you help us now? Algis’ life hangs in the balance. Any amount you contribute will make a difference. Please, make a donation now to restore life and possibility to a treasured member of our community.

With deep gratitude for your support we ask you to please make your donation now.

With Love,

Friends of Algis
