Across Brazil, only six people have been diagnosed with pituitary adenitis, one of whom lives in Gravataí. Aline Rodriguez is 32, the mother of a 16-year-old boy and a nine-year-old girl. Since last year, Gravataiense has been suffering from the consequences of the disease. “I am already blind in my left eye, and I could be paralyzed,” she reveals in a report Gravesend Tour.

Aline needs an expensive treatment, which is carried out twice a year, at a cost of 6 thousand RRL each time. He resumed, “I’m already looking into it in court, but it takes time and I don’t have time because it’s in the brain and it gets worse.” Aline’s husband works two jobs, but she can no longer work and the family situation has become complicated. “They cut off the electricity for us, rent was two months late,” she says. At home, she has the support of her son. “He helps me, he cleans the house, he takes care of his sister, he’s a golden son.”

A month ago, Allen had to undergo a craniotomy, the removal of part of the skull bone, to explore the brain. As a result, she must live with six screws in her head. A cat was created to help her start therapy. Anyone who wants to participate can help by donating any amount click here. Another way to contribute is via pix, phone number 51995362131.
