Fighting Bryce's fight

Fighting Bryce's fight

Personal message

I am Kim van Rensburg, sister to Bryce Thompson who has recently been diagnosed with stage 3 Melanoma. Bryce is an amazing son, father to Cole (who is only 18 months old), brother and friend and needs our support.

No one ever thinks this will happen to someone in their family, but here we are fighting the fight for Bryce against the dreaded cancer.

Unfortunately the only treatment he can have as chemo does not work on Melanoma, is a drug called Keytruda and Keytruda (see more info on cansa.org.za) is exceptionally expensive.

Currently Discovery medical aid will not fund Keytruda because he is not on the top plan (which most of us are not on) so we need to self-fund a few treatments to prevent cancer progressing to stage 4. Each treatment costs close to R100 000 (R96485-46) which is very difficult to fund as a family as you can imagine and we need your help family and friends.

Bryce is starting the treatment on Monday, 8 April 2019 as we can't wait any longer. Our family will self-fund the treatment for the first few months. We are praying we can raise enough funds to eventually get him to December 2019 which would amount to around R900 000 (9 treatments) after the 9 months, we are hoping he can upgrade his medical aid and the self-funding portion will drop dramatically to only 25% of the cost of this special drug. The total cost of this treatment amounts to around 1.8million rand.

Funds raised will be paid directly to an attorney who will then pay across the money to Dr. Chan @ Sandton Oncology via Dischem who brings in the drug.

Please help us ensure Bryce's Melanoma does not reach stage 4 which is life-threatening.

We appreciate your love and support.

Love Bryce and family x

I am Kim van Rensburg, sister to Bryce who has been diagnosed with stage 3 Melonoma. Bryce is an amazing son, father, brother and friend and needs our support. Bryce needs a specific treatment/drug called Keytruda which medical aid will not fund so we need to self-fund a few treatments to prevent cancer progressing to stage 4.
