We Remember Agata Mroz

4 years ago she left us and traveled to the heavens…

At 17 years old, Agata was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic syndrome:

“The myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS, formerly known as preleukemia) are a diverse collection of hematological (blood-related) medical conditions that involve ineffective production (or dysplasia) of the myeloid class of blood cells. Patients with MDS often develop severe anemia and require frequent blood transfusions. In most cases, the disease worsens and the patient develops cytopenias (low blood counts) due to progressive bone marrow failure. In about one third of patients with MDS, the disease transforms into acute myelogenous leukemia (AML), usually within months to a few years. The myelodysplastic syndromes are all disorders of the stem cell in the bone marrow. In MDS, hematopoiesis (blood production) is disorderly and ineffective. The number and quality of blood-forming cells decline irreversibly, further impairing blood production.

After going through a bone marrow transplant, she suffered an infection which claimed her life on June 4th, 2008.

Agata was 26.

Agata is survived by her husband Jacek Olszewski and daughter Liliana, who was born 2 months before her death.

As for her volleyball career, she was an active member of the Polish national team and became a European Champion in 2003 and 2005. Professionally, she won the Polish League in 2003 ans 2004 with club team BKS Stal Bielsko-Biała. In 2007, Agata moved to Spain to play for Grupo 2002 Murcia where they won the Spanish League and Spanish Cup in the same year.

Last May 11th, 2012, a film was released inspired by Agata’s life story.

NAD ŻYCIE We Remember Agata Mroz

Film Synopis in Polish:

Przez lata poznajesz tysiące osób, aż pewnego dnia spotykasz kogoś, kto zmienia twoje życie. Na zawsze. Tak było z Agatą (Olga Bołądź). Odnosząca międzynarodowe sukcesy siatkarka zakochuje się bez pamięci w Jacku (Michał Żebrowski). O takiej miłości marzyła przez całe życie. Wszystko miało być jak w bajce – piękny ślub, dzieci i dom w górach. Te plany przerywa jeden telefon. Po dramatycznej informacji Agata rozpocznie wyścig z czasem. Zawalczy o siebie, o mężczyznę, którego kocha i o dziecko, którego pragnie nad życie. Czy miłość wszystko zniesie? Czy wszystko przetrzyma?

Here’s the trailer of “NAD ŻYCIE“:

She might have left here on earth but we will never forget her.

We miss you Agata!
