This performance at 10.30pm on Saturday night was a moment of incredible parental love, strength, inspiration and hope. I hope that something can grow out of this sad fate.
A doctor whose child has lost the battle and wants to fight. For others! Television doctor Dr. Johannes Wimmer spoke at the “Ein Herz für Kinder” gala about the death of his little daughter Maximilia, who died at the age of only nine months.
On the show, Wimmer said to presenter Johannes B. Kerner, “It would have been worse if I hadn’t come here today. Because then cancer would have triumphed. “
Only on Friday, Dr. Johannes Wimmer (37) and his wife Clara (33) is the worst situation that parents can face. They buried their nine-month-old daughter in a cemetery in Hamburg. A few days ago, Maximilia died of a highly malignant brain tumor.
The little girl fought bravely. Parents outdid themselves in difficult months. But they want to keep fighting.
Dr. Wimmer to BILD: “For the fact that something meaningful can emerge from this nonsense. That is why it is worth paying attention to the fate that can be found in “Heart for Children”. Money for research to save as many children, parents and relatives as possible. Please give it. We have to do EVERYTHING so that this disease is curable someday and no child has to die of it.
The doctor told him live on television about the difficult times: “As a father, the hardest thing is to let go and tell the child that he can go when he wants to.”
He describes very touchingly: “In the last few weeks and months, we have felt so much how great senselessness has taken over us. We were spectators in our lives. My goal is to create something meaningful. Otherwise, cancer would triumph. Now he took her life, but we keep on fighting. “
Dr. Wimmer on time with Maximilia: “I wanted us, as a family, to have a special moment during the day.” It was cooked for us, and the other children were taken away. They are small things and the people around them are very grateful to be able to help.
With the help of the Wimmer family, “Ein Herz für Kinder” would like to use your donation to establish and extend the new Children’s Cancer Center (KITZ) in Heidelberg.
Under the guidance of cancer specialist prof. Stefan Pfister, a leading research institution in Europe is to be established here. Wimmer: Unfortunately, this project is dependent on private donations. And since I want to spare the other parents this pain, I am committed here with all my might.
With his appearance, Dr. Johannes Wimmer all of Germany to tears.
Regardless of whether millions of people are watching TV – or celebrities in a hall in Berlin. Manuela Schwesig, Verona Pooth, Dieter Hallervorden and other celebrities released their feelings and tears.
