Welcome to the website of the “Lichtgevend” Foundation.

The Lichtgevend Foundation was able to post this message on Social Media (in Dutch) on March 4, 2024. Emilie underwent successful surgery thanks to the donors of the Foundation. Thank you very much for that. She can now recover and experience what the operation has brought her.

Last week it happened. My admission to the university hospital in Freiburg. After that it went very quickly. Monday admission and MRI for a general picture, Tuesday dynamic myelography to localize the leak. And: it worked!
The leak was successfully closed surgically on Wednesday.
I was released from the hospital on Saturday.
Of course, only time will tell what this operation has done for me. I’m going to recover now.
I am so grateful and happy that what five Dutch hospitals couldn’t achieve in seven and a half years, with dozens of diagnostic tests, has been achieved/ solved here in Freiburg in three days.
@Peter Poelstra, thank you for the help with the preparation from @Medicohelp.
Donors of @Stichting Lichtgevend thank you for your financial help and moral support in this long-term process.
And of course: Vielen Dank, Team des Neurozentrums des Universitätsklinikums Freiburg.
I feel like a blessed person.
