Kuragg Habib

Jiena tifla ta’ tnax–il sena. Issa ili Wonderland madwar tliet gimghat u drajt lil kulhadd. Qatt ma hsibt li tista’ ma tkunx f’sahhtek u xorta tkun kuntenta. Imma issa nista’ nghid xort’ ohra. Hawnhekk ser innizzel xi punti u nies li ghamluli kuragg.

Everyone is welcome to be part of this family

Since I was a child, it was always a dream that when I grow up I will be working with children. When I grew older I got to know about Puttinu Cares through media but I never knew what it takes to be a volunteer. I don’t know where this wish came from, especially knowing that I’m not a hospital person..

Your child has cancer

“Your child has cancer” are 4 words that no parent ever wants to hear, but sadly this is what we heard in November 2017. Our daughter had leukaemia at just 2 years old. Being 38 weeks pregnant and having lost a boyfriend to leukemia, I literally felt the weight of the world on my shoulder. Would my daughter also die a slow, painful death?

Message from Jacob’s Mum

“The cancer is back”, Dr Calvagna told us in February of 2013. We knew without him needing to spell it out what it meant. This was the fourth time that cancer had reared up its head and this time there was nothing more that could be done to save Jacob. Devastating? It doesn’t even start explaining the engulfing pain me and my husband were experiencing.

Looking forward to continue with my life…

oday 30th January I am celebrating my sixteenth birthday and on this special day I would like to deeply thank Dr.Calvagna first and foremost, as well as the other doctors and the nursing staff of Rainbow Ward for their patience and continuous support when I mostly needed it. They encouraged me to fight my battle against cancer. I would also like to thank Dr. Eric Farrugia and or Dr. Nick Refalo

Basically Puttinu means the world to me

Now, that I am getting closer and closer to finishing my treatment, I felt I had to send you a small thank you message concerning you, Dr. Victor Calvagna and the other nurses and doctors in Rainbow Ward. Honestly when I remember the first time entering the Ward, I still hadn’t met you guys as it was very early but I felt something which immediately made me feel at home. Something which you always showed me during my battle. Something which gave me hope and courage in facing the situation. You had my back from day 1 and you can’t even imagine what a difference it made for me.

Rosenwald Spiteri

Lejn l-ahhar tas-sena 2000 bdejt inhoss sintomi mhux normali. Dak iz-zmien kelli 9 snin. L-aptit beda jonqos drastikament fija; fl-ikel, fil-loghob ma’ shabi etc. Inqast hafna fil-piz u fil-grinda li dejjem kelli ghal-loghba tal-ballun u kont qed insiba difficli hafna biex nigri

My stay at Puttinu House

When I was asked to accompany a relative who was going for treatment at the Royal Marsden Hospital,I was very anxious. I am the last person to be there where people are suffering and I usually break down myself.

Anna Testimonial

Early last February, I’ve been diagnosed with a brain aneurysm which needed to be treated in UK hospital. My concerns were not only about my health matter but also about accomadation for my family member who offered to accompany all throughout my stay in UK.

2015 please, be kind to us all …

One Year ago, my son expressed the wish to have white hair – Thanks to Frozen, the movie. By the end of March that is what he had… White hair… The Price? His health!! 2014 has been a Roller coaster ride.

Il-Kancer

Wara ħafna taqtih il-qalb U ġranet mitlufa fit-talb Wasal l-imbierek riżultat L-ikbar xokk ta’ ħajti jien ħadt Nixtieqkom tiġu sa l-isptar Biex il-Profs jagħtikom l-aħbar Ifemkom sew l-affarijiet Għax hemm bżonn aktar testijiet.L-Omm tinfaqa f’bikja kbira Kif ħadet l -aħbar hekk kiefra.

Mario Bonnet and his wife experience

In the second half of 2013, my wife was diagnosed with a serious eye condition in both her eyes which could lead to blindness if left untreated. It turned out that at that time, the necessary treatment was not available in Malta and my wife and I had to go to a leading eye hospital in the UK for treatment.

Grazzi Puttinu

Nixtiequ nghidu GRAZZI mill-qalb lil Puttinu Cares ta’ l-ghajnuna kollha li tawna f’dan il-mument tant difficli ghall-familja taghna. Ghadna kif morna hamest gimghat l-Ingilterra biex it-tifel taghna ikun jista jiehu l-kura u qaghdna fil-flats ta’ Puttinu.

Puttinu means the world to me

The Marathon

Ever since my son had been diagnosed with leukaemia I had been looking forward to the Maratona – which is surprising since I am not all that keen on football.
