She has an incurable brain tumor: Conny saved by the doctors of the Aquaviva delle Fonti hospital

connie is an entrepreneur who works in Puglia and who has been involved in aviation solidarity events for several years, particularly as it relates to balloon flights. She was recently diagnosed with a inoperable brain tumor and so Conny had decided to rely on an industry luminary to find the right cure for his illness. But contrary to popular belief, she was saved by a specialist from the regional general hospital Miulli by Aquaviva delle Fonti.

Conny himself decided to do it tell his story through a letter to La Gazzatta del Mezzogiorno, in which she publicly thanks the doctor who saved her life: “My name is Conny, I work with balloons and children. The purpose of my work is to donate a smile to research, a work aimed at supporting the research being carried out by the Matteo Coveri Onlus Association, committed to raising funds that will benefit the University of Florence assigned to research to block tumors, rare infants and generate molecules and drugs for cancers such as glioblastoma. My story has no coincidental connection with the University of Florence, precisely because the person to whom I owe my life today studied at that university. I’m talking about the legendary doctor David Giraldi, 40 years old from Tuscany, a wonderful person, a doctor with a capital D, a magical person, how magical the chance meeting with him was ».

«In 2020 I was diagnosed with a very large brain mass of 4 centimeters, which no one could give a first and last name. There is a certain mass that carries with it High risk of death: Whenever I asked to do a biopsy, I was always given the same advice, which is to keep everything under surveillance, as I did. However, due to poorly reported MRI scans, my tumor has become malignant; I could have healed myself, but I wasn’t told that the resonance report showed an inch increase in mass: it was always written that not everything had evolved. It is only thanks to a close friend who urged me to see another doctor, a neuro-oncologist from Padua who, observing the resonances, informed me that the problem had progressed by an inch and decided to take action Kreis oncologist of the Miulli Hospital, through which I appointed the head of radiotherapy, Dr. Alba Fiorentino, who acted as an intermediary between me and Dr. David Giraldi acted. I was supposed to do radiation therapy on her. Instead, with his sweetness, he decided to let me speak to the neurosurgeon as there was no time for radiation therapy. I knew I would have to have surgery or I wouldn’t have arrived in October. That’s how it was and within ten days, exactly on July 21 at 8 am, the doctor and his team operated on me and saved me using new technologies in 3D mapping. An incredible result: in 7 hours of surgery he removed 80% of my mass and thanks to his work I am home today. I live thanks to him ».

«Puglia has a hospital of Italian excellence, the Miulli, with a mythical doctor like him. We don’t have to go very far: Dr. Giraldi, it seems he came from a fiction of the American, where they operate the same as him, with the music in the operating room, which he knew I would have liked , because he asked me beforehand what song I was listening to during the operation would have liked to hear. Against the background of the 1980s, the team led by Dr. Giraldi and consisting of Dr. Salvatore D’Oria, Dr. Domenico Murrone, Dr. Giuseppe Salamone and Dr. Alberto Tomatis got my life back on its feet! Thanks will never be enough ».
