 Please Help Darek Live with ALS



Please Help Darek Live with ALS


In 2014 at age of 51 Darek was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehring disease). Darek lives with his wife Ania and daughter Ruth on Vashon Island and have been battling the ALS for 5 years now. He knows his story will have no happy ending but he is trying to live the best life he can. He wrote a book about his experience as ALS patient, becoming increasingly disabled and dependent on his family as caregivers for basic life functions. The book was written in Polish and published as "Maly Wielki Tydzien. Ksiazka napisana jednym palcem" by Pruszynski i S-ka and is available for purchase at: https://www.proszynski.pl/Maly_wielki_tydzien__Ksiazka_napisana_jednym_palcem-p-36638-.html



His story will not have a happy ending but is full of life and humor you would not expect from someone slowly dying and losing control of his life.


To make a donation to help with Darek's life care expenses and learn more about his life please go to the GoFundMe link  https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-darek-live-with-als

 Learning Polish on the internet

Learning Polish on the internet


Please read info about Libratus schools and Polish government proposals posted on the FAQ page.


Below there is some info about learning Polish with help of internet as recommended by Readers or  submitted to the Editor by different educational outfits.




Reader recommended free podcasts and paid subscriptions with Piotr.

Seems great for Polish-Americans, that is people who know the language somewhat,

understand more, speak less and would like to take it to the next level.

In small daily chunks, regular readings etc.
