Polish Olympian Zofia Noceti-Klepacka To Auction Bronze Medal To Raise Money For 5-Year Old Girl With Cystic Fibrosis

Zofia Noceti-Klepacka went to the 2012 London Summer Olympics with the hopes not only of winning a medal for herself, but for a very dear neighbor. The 26-year old Polish windsurfer was competing for her neighbor, 5-year old Zuzia, who suffers from cystic fibrosis, a serious and fatal disease that causes infections in the lungs and digestive system. The surgeries and medicine have sorely taxed Zuzia’s family. Zofia promised Zuzia that were she to win a medal at the Olympics, she would sell it to help with the medical costs to Zuzia’s family. As fate would have it, Zofia did win a bronze medal and is making good on her promise. What I hope happens is that somebody with the resources to help simply donates the money and lets Zofia keep her medal. But if she needs to sell it, then so be it. I wish for it not to come to that. Surely some person or organization will be moved to help. Of course, people around the world suffer from cystic fibrosis and many other ailments. Some might argue why focus only on this one. Well…because it is important to save one. Maybe you can’t save the world, but saving one is more than worth the effort. There is no guarantee Zuzia will survive, but Zofia has known Zuzia since her birth. The blessing is in trying to save the little girl. Whatever happens is up to a greater power.
