Dear Bakery Meier,

My wife was diagnosed with a brain tumor in the spring of 2017. A side effect of the biopsy required for this was that she was no longer able to swallow and had to be fed through a feeding tube for weeks.

She learned to eat again with great effort, and one goal drove her on: for her birthday on 24 June, she wanted to drink tea with me and eat one of her beloved nut pastries rom you.

Her wish became true and on her 36th birthday, we could sit on our balcony in Lessingstraße in the sunshine and eat nut pastries. I have attached two photos of that time here to the mail.

This year her tumour started to grow again and her condition has unfortunately worsened rapidly. At the moment she can still eat very slowly and with a lot of effort, we don’t know how long she will still be able to swallow. On June 24th my wife will be 39 years old and she wishes to have a nut pastry again.

We shop every Saturday in your branch in the Sophienstraße. These days, I push her in a wheelchair. Unfortunately, you have not had any nut pastries for a few months now. We have tried it with raisin snails, with nutcroissants, walnut-yeast buns or currant-yeast buns. Nothing can replace a nut pastry from you.

Would it be possible for you to bake nut pastries again on 24 June?

Thank you very much and best regards
