Rare cancers, funds research, and who is in trouble in the name of Gabriele
“BORN to exorcise the memory of Christmas eve last year, when Gabriel has left us, the idea of presenting on the 23rd of December, the association that we founded in her memory, which will raise funds for research on rare cancers and to help patients who do not have economic ability to cope with all the difficulties of the day to which the disease forces. I know that my husband would be proud to be remembered in this way.” Maria Cristina Bigongiali, RAI journalist, tells Oncoline her experience as the wife of Gabriel White, struck at 45 years of age from rhabdomyosarcoma (a rare cancer borne by soft tissue that develops from cells of striated muscle and that strikes every year, one out of every 170 thousand), explaining the mission, “With Gabriele against rare Cancers,” the association, which was founded in memory of her husband, and that will be presented in Pisa in the Room the Balearic islands of Palazzo Gambacorti on the 23rd of December at 18.30.
Skiing, sailing and many friends, “Gabriel picks up on Maria Cristina was born 11 January 1969 in Pisa, where he graduated in transport engineering. Then he obtained the master in business administration at the Polytechnic of Milan and the phd program on procurement management at the University of Pisa. From 2008 he was responsible of the purchases in the Italian post. He was a sportsman, he never abandoned his great passion of the boy for a sailing boat, with which, after the degree had been around the world, and that for skiing. Was friendly and humorous and had a lot of friends. After nearly 4 years of treatment, to Christmas eve 2018, has left us”.
it's about health “When they arrived the first symptoms of the disease was in perfect health, was active, ate healthy, did sports, did not drink and did not smoke. One day we noticed a swelling on the neck, a lymph node enlarged. We thought of something simple, one of those things that heal and move on. Instead, by controlling the nose and the throat, the doctors found immediately a small presence, something that should not be there but there, she had the tumor, at one stage, the already difficult to operate, to remove. We couldn't believe: from get going healthy, steps to the condition of the patient, from one day to another”.
he Believed in medicine, he was an engineer “we've groomed – speaks in the plural, Maria Cristina – Regina Elena of Rome, the city where we live, although both are pisani, doing everything that needed to be done. Everything that medical science could do. For more than three and a half years, Gabriel is subjected to chemo-and radiotherapy, without ever considering the idea of not making it: a couple of days before leaving, he underwent radiation therapy to the lung, where he had metastases, and bought two carpets. Do not buy carpet if you plan to go away. He was a strong man, a strong spirit and he never gave up. He went in the hospital on a scooter, that was his style. I – he says his wife – in the moments of greatest discouragement, I confess that I have thought of some alternative treatment. But, no, he Gabriel, was an engineer, he believed in science, he never had any doubts about the medicine. He knew that the doctors were doing everything we could do.”
Funds for research, and who is in economic difficulty, “This year, a year away, and I, and our daughter Annagiulia, who is now 14 years old, could remember with a mass, Gabriele was religious. However, we thought that the best way to celebrate his memory is to present the association in his name, in his city, and exactly on Christmas day, those to us of the melancholy larger, but that will now be also those of the birth of an initiative that bears his name.” And that will have two objectives: to allocate a share of the money that will be able to collect the research of rare cancers “because there is more need, because they are diseases against which we proceed to trial, unlike other forms of cancer more frequently,” says Maria Cristina. And a share to the sick people of the territory of pisa that you are in a situation of financial distress, “because not all patients have the jobs that protect from diseases so complex and time-consuming, not everyone can afford a taxi, help in the home, carers, psychologists for the family...”, she reflects. “We have also established the Challenge Trophy Sailing Skiing Memorial Gabriele Bianchi – adds – organized by entrepreneur Roberto Lacorte, to remember him also having fun with its passions”.
