This is the story of Biljana, a 21-year-old from Kukës. Since she was 3 years old, she was diagnosed with scoliosis, which made her life miserable.
“All I think about are the results from X-ray and how the spine has been deformed over the years. It is horrible, I couldn’t see myself in the mirror. I couldn’t wear anything, because my spine deformation was too obvious.
What hurts most is the prejudgement of people, them staring at me as I pass by. I have no desire for anything. I just want to sit in a room and cry. I don’t want contact with anyone, don’t want them to see me. ”
These were some of her words from the devastating confession she made months ago. But, now “Different Weekend” has some good news from Biljana. Finally, the foundation made it possible for her to go to Turkey and have an operation. Which was really difficult but it went well and now Biljana is recovering.
After full-recovery, Biljana will return to Albania, where a new life awaits her. Now with hope and the courage to make her dreams come true. “Different Weekend” will always be close to her, for every need.
Thank you to all Albanians who helped save Biljana.
