The newspaper Jurnalul has a small report about Steliana's situation, in which they mention her medical condition and that she has decided not to go to Canada.
The story says that fans all over the world started to collect money for her after they learnt
that she initially wanted to go to Canada but that Belu and Bitang convinced her to stay in Romania for treatment. Steliana: 'I have got used to the pain. I'm having therapy but it can
take up to a year before it improves.'
The article mentions the donation started through this site and how much money we collected but that the gymnast asked for the donation to be stopped as she was staying in Romania.
Steliana's case has been reported in the Romanian papers but she feels that her words have
been misrepresented and her image has suffered. Steliana: 'I have decided not to give
interviews anymore as a lot of things printed were untrue, that I have asked the fans for money or even Chinese gymnast Cheng Fei. They wrote that I don't have money for University, that I have entered without paying. I have a life annuity and even though I haven't had the money
yet, I live in an apartment that was granted to me after the Olympics so I am not living in poverty, as it was portrayed.'
Note from the webmaster: I have been in contact with fans from the Chinese Steliana Nistor Fan club and over the past two months there has been no article about Steliana asking Cheng Fei for money in the papers at all.
This would appear to be an invention of one of the journalists unfortunately, maybe to get a reaction out of Steliana.
Steliana hasn't asked anyone for anything in her entire life and it is very harsh the press wants
to change the facts and belittle her in this way.
Throughout the world Steliana is respected for her wonderful sportive attitude and her devotion to gymnastics, she has been a great ambassador for Romanian sport during her career.
The media should be applauding and celebrating Steliana's achievements.
She is an example to anyone that, however humble your start in life, hard work, bravery and ambition can triumph over any adversity.
All her fans worldwide have been mailing to wish her well and hope the treatment is a success.
