In his epigram, Jan Kochanowski wrote:
And a man truly
Can see it fully,
And tell by himself,
There’s nothing like Health,
Yet so dear;
It has been nearly 450 years since a master Jan Kochanowski died but nobody dares to question what he wrote. There is nothing more important that good health and although we can take care of ourselves better in XXI century, we use various medicaments and dietary supplements, we do sport and we treat lifestyle as going to the gym and healthy food restaurants, our relatives, beloved ones, friends and we ourselves get sick. Sometimes these illnesses are incurable. We do our best to struggle against diseases but sometimes we can do nothing.
Unfortunately a 21-century medicine has not found answers to numerous questions about fast detection, proper diagnosis, effective treatment and prevention of certain diseases. Sick persons suffer physically and emotionally. Sometimes they feel as if their world was collapsing around them, and even if they deal with this well, they have to fight against the diseases in many ways, they lose life energy, optimism and get depressed.
It is possible to help them in various ways: through counseling and medical consultancies as well as legal advice, through agency in the process of purchasing rehabilitation equipment, covering some or all costs related to surgeries and treatments, as well as mental support, physical presence in critical moments.
On 15 March 2017 Polsat NEWS published the following on the website of Polish Press Agency:
