My Story

MY SUPERHERO KOSTA My little brother Kosta was diagnosed on 23 January 2015 with an aggressive brain cancer called Medulloblastoma. Kosta is my true superhero, he was brave and super strong throughout his cancer treatment, he was full of love, life and hope. We fought together, side by side, day and night, together with our family, all of us, to help Kosta, to protect him, to keep him happy, and heal him from cancer. Despite our collective fight, current science and medicine was not advanced enough to cure our little Kosta, and we lost him on 4 March 2016, when he was only 8 years old. Kosta had the most generous heart. Kosta is and will always be our King Kosta, our Warrior, OUR SUPERHERO! I love you, Volim te Kosta, from your big brother Luka. Film "OUR SUPERHEROES" I have made a 5 min short film titled "OUR SUPERHEROES" which is about my little brother Kosta, grief and loss, childhood cancer and with a message for adults to help find a cure. I have created this film in honour of my Kosta, to share our story of love and pain and help raise awareness about childhood cancer. My hope is for adults to do something to help. Thank you for taking ACTION and making a DONATION, on behalf of our superhero Kosta and his super-brother Luka. "Our Superheroes" is an Award Winning Film. It has received a lot of international media attention, and was selected to be screened as part of a Film Festival in Times Square, New York in October 2017. WHY ST. BALDRICKS? We have chosen ST. BALDRICK'S FOUNDATION as this organisation is the LARGEST (non-government) funder of CHILDHOOD CANCER RESEARCH. They have special grant review systems in place to fund only the very best childhood cancer research. Every year there are great things that they do! In 2015, as a result of research supported by St. Baldrick's, the FDA approved a new drug - this is only the third approved drug in 20 years made specifically for kids with cancer. Following Kosta's passing, our family and friends have raised $20,627.50 for St. Baldrick's Foundation through the givealittle page. Thank you to our family and friends!
