My name is Plamen Marinov – I have cancer.

This fundraiser hopes to raise money for:

- A specialized orthopedic bed

- Medical tests that are not covered by insurance

- Additional therapy not covered by insuranceThree months ago, I was paralyzed.

An MRI scan confirmed my diagnosis as cancer.

I have spinal metastases, which led to my being completely paralyzed from the waist down. The largest of these was found between the 7th and 8th vertebrae, and it had blocked my bone marrow. I have been to surgery for their removal.
Currently, I remain paralyzed from the waist down. I cannot move my legs orcannot control any of my muscles from the waist down.

I have a permanent catheter attached and must use diapers.

I cannot lie down or get up without asking someone for help.

I must lie on my back all day, which is made extremely painful by the spinal metastases. Everything – lying down, standing up, changing my clothes and diapers – is painful.
I have additional metastases on both the left and right parts of my chest.
Despite simple passive movements such as rehabilitation therapy that people close to me help me with, my leg muscles are starting to atrophy.
The positioning of my body on my bed is almost exclusively horizontal.

I have the Babinski reflex on both my legs. The slightest movement or sound can trigger a spasm and the Babinski reflex from the nerves and muscles on both my legs.
Sometimes it happens without a trigger.

I get painful spasms and extreme pain down the nerve from the place of surgery to my legs.

These cramps often last for hours, with a few spasms per minute. If my torso is lifted at a 30-degree angle, the occurrence of this reflex can be minimized by 80%.
However, this is not possible on a regular bed. I am in need of a specialized orthopedic bed so that I can move my body to an angle that feels normal.

In my fight with cancer, I need tests and treatment that are not currently covered by the existing medical system here.

I need financial support for tests that will help doctors find the main tumor, and subsequent treatments.

This fundraiser hopes to raise money for:

- A specialized orthopedic bed

- Medical tests that are not covered by insurance

- Additional therapy not covered by insurance
