29 October 2007, a tour in Russia.
The van with the band on board, crashes.
As a tragic result, Witek, the drummer dies.
Adrian himself, is severely injured.
Soon after being transported back to Poland, Adrian undergoes a highly complex neo surgical operation, at the University Hospital in Krakow.
The operation, at a time considered successful.
36th hour of pharmacological coma, concluded, due to medical negligence, with a cardiac arrest and defused cerebral hypoxia...
23 April 2008 after six months treatment at the hospital Adrian is finally brought back home.
Adrian has been treated not only at home, but also in medical and rehabilitation centres.
Adrian's home has been facilitated in order to speed up the most efficient way to his recovery.
All the innovative methods applied, require huge involvement of many highly qualified people and what's more, great financial input, far beyond affords of his family.
Regular medical consultations often a long distance away from home, have now become more frequent thanks to the purchase of a specially designed and adjusted to Adrians needs vehicle. Now the transport is much more feasible.
The total cost of Adrian's treatment and expensive neurological medications rests exclusively on his family.
Still, however he is conscious, there is no communication with him. Every single day, Adrian requires full 24 hour paramedical care.
A range of different medical methods and activities has already been involved, including: 36 hours weekly of physiotherapy, special therapeutic massages and also 10 hour nurse care daily and others unusual methods (acupressure, vibration, magnetic fields, etc). It is necessary constant supervision by neurological, physiotherapist and medical specialists. Frequent medical consultations are ongoing demand.
We would appreciate further financial aid, as we are incapable of covering the costs of the treatment all by ourselves. It is with your help, that we would like to see Adrian back to health. We are soon planning to install a lifting platform to avoid such great difficulties for out/in going house. All the time we are improving his daily life by supplying him with necessary small equipment. In coming future we are planning to go for cell treatment therapy in one of the Western countries clinics. We are happy to answer all your queries either via phone or e-mail.
Many thanks to all who have been supporting us with their financial aid both for the Foundation, as well as, individual donations for Adrian. We are also grateful towards those who encouraged us to hope, and to all people of good will, who organized concerts and visited Adrian all the time.
We would like to thank on behalf of Adrian, the Foundation and ours. We wouldn't have been where are at present, if it weren't for your help.
