Health Tijn Kolsteren backwards after Serious Request

The health of Tijn Kolsteren, who, during Serious Request € 2.5 million a month with his nail Polish action, is going backwards.

The parents of the six year old boy have to 3FM let you know that they have a difficult time behind the back.

“For us it was very painful to have to see that the health of Tijn during Christmas visibly declined, so that Tijn directly after Christmas irradiations had undergone”, write his parents, Gerrit and Jolanda.

The family is “very grateful” that the difficult period may vary “with fun and special outings, which for us were made possible”. So I went to take the family to Disneyland Paris and they spent Sunday a visit to the match of PSV against Heerenveen.


Tijn has trouble walking. “A wheelchair for long distances is inevitable.” Tijn is suffering from terminal hersenstamkanker (DIPG), a rare disease that annually in the Netherlands for fifteen to twenty children is established.

Last month, he developed his to be the figurehead of Serious Request with his action Coating, in which everyone raises his or her nails to paint and to donate money for the charity.
