Four Persons to Kayak around Malta on Sette Giugno

Thursday, June 6, 2013, 9:35

Long distance kayakers Albert Gambina and Dorian Vassallo, will be joined by Ian Laferla and Andrea Scorcia, and will be kayaking 42 nautical miles around Malta on June 7 in aid of Kirsty Vassallo.

Kirsty was involved in a motor vehicle accident last September at the age of 19, which resulted in her sustaining extensive brain injury. She has been recommended for lengthy and intensive rehabilitation therapy abroad with costs running into tens of thousands of Euro. The treatment alone, which may last between three and six months, costs between €55,000 euro and €75,000 depending on the length of time of rehabilitation needed.

Unfortunately, the treatment needed by Kirsty does not fall within the parameters for state financial assistance for treatment of patients abroad. This treatment will therefore have to be paid from private funds. Any amount donated to this special cause will go towards making Kirsty’s life more independent. Help us help her. Donations in aid of this event may be forwarded as follows:
