Apollon FC is reaching out to all of our fans to raise awareness and support a young fan, Antonis, who has been diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy since he was only 5 months old. Antonis is currently fighting for his life and Apollon FC stands by him and his family.
Spinal Muscular Atrophy is a rare disease which requires a long and consuming treatment, as well as expensive medicine which is very difficult to procure. The experimental medicine which has been given to Antonis is called «nusinersen/spinraza» and was procured after the financial help of the Cypriot Government. The medicine was able to stop the spreading of the disease and today Antonis is still alive because of it.
Recently, a new treatment called ZOLGENSMA has been suggested as a possible cure since it can affect the molecules that cause the actual disease. However, the treatment costs around 2 million euros which is why Apollon FC prompts all of our fans to help Antonis and his family by donating any amount they can.
