Ms Tamara Mrkun shared her story in the article in Svet24 newspaper.
“When I first met Mr Dernovšek I thought – here is another guy who is trying to convince me not to give up and die. I did not believe his promises about having more energy. But then it started to happen.”
“At first I had more energy and better blood circulation, then the symptoms of ataxia started to disappear. After three weeks I could hear without the hearing aid. I had a similar breakthrough as Kristjan but with me it happened in only 25 days. After 4 weeks I was able to start walking again after years of being chained to my wheelchair and bed. After five weeks I was able to swim without a board. After seven weeks I started to learn how to dance Viennese Waltz. On the 97th day of my therapy I was able to walk independently, without leaning on a stick or on somebody else.”
