    Some Marieke Vervoort News from July 1, 2019: Marieke Vervoort shares heartbreaking video: "I can't do it anymore" https://nl.metrotime.be/2019/07/01/must-read/marieke-vervoort-deelt-hartverscheurende-video-ik-kan-niet-meer/ Google translation: The former wheelchair athlete Marieke Vervoort has shared a gripping video in which she is in despair. Vervoort has been fighting for years against terrible pains caused by progressive tetraplegia, a paralyzing disease. Marieke "Wielemie" Vervoort is going through hell. The 40-year-old former wheelchair athlete, who won a gold and silver medal at the Paralympic Games, suffers from progressive tetraplegia, a disease in which her arms and legs are paralyzed. As a result, she often lives in hellish pain, just like last weekend. Vervoort shared a video in which she moans with pain and indicates that she cannot continue like this. “My pain is not fair. They can't do this to anyone. Since Saturday afternoon I have started to give up enormously. I can not handle it any longer. I can't even get a drink. I can't do anything. It doesn't work anymore. It must stop. When is everything finally okay? When will it finally stop? All promises, all beautiful words, until you ask the real truth, but then you get no answer, "it sounds. Wielemie recently filmed a documentary about her life. It will premiere in New York in December. "I am really looking forward to that, but I just don't know if I will last that long," she said earlier in Dag Allemaal.
