ELIZABETH TAYLOR KULIKOWSKI
is 2 1/2 years old. In September 2007 she was diagnosed with an inoperable brain stem tumor ( diffused pontine glioma).. She was treated at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston and received the most aggressive and progressive form of treatment currently available. The treatment she received was a new combination of radiation and radioactive chemotherapy, she showed great progress, and passed the 1 YEAR mark with a great outlook. In October 2008 her regular MRI showed the tumor was still stable!!! Unfortunately, a mere 3 weeks later in November, an MRI showed that the tumor had rapidly re-grown. Needless to say Elizabeth’s family and doctors at Dana Farber were very discouraged, as the treatment she received was the best availableHer doctors at Dana Farber gave Elizabeth 3 months to live.
Through aggressive research Elizabeth’s family found the Burzynski Clinic in Houston, TX (for more info www.burzynskiclinic.com) Dr. S. Burzynski has been using low-toxic gene therapy to treat cancer for the past 30 years.. The Burzynksi clinic has had SUCCESS against tumors just like Elizabeth’s!!! Unfortunately, since the treatment is still undergoing FDA trials Elizabeth’s treatment is NOT COVERED by insurance. Elizabeth and her family have relocated to Houston to begin treatment; the initial cost to begin treatment is $18,000! To maintain her treatments for a year it will cost her family $7,600 a month!!!
Donations will assist with the cost of Elizabeth’s treatments as well as temporary accommodations in Houston for Elizabeth and her family. An account has been set up at Sovereign Bank in Randolph, MA, assistance of any kind is GREATLY APPRECIATED.
Donations can be made payable to:
