Cheree McEwen Melanoma Fund

Personal message

Cheree has Stage 4 Metastatic Melanoma. She recently had surgery to remove several tumors from her body. The tumors have unfortunately regrown at a rapid and life-threatening rate. This type of cancer is unresponsive to chemotherapy and radiation. Surgery may extend her life by a couple of months but the doctors have found from all of her tests that surgery wont do much as the cancer is already in the blood and nervous system which requires treatment which may or may not work. The BRAF inhibitors offer better odds of giving Cheree a greater chance of living. Braf inhibitors have been shown to rapidly shrink the exact kind of tumors Cheree has. It is extremely costly and will cost R98 000 per month , which she will need for the rest of her life. The oncologist has suggested us to start with 3 cycles and then to have a PET scan to see if it's working and if it is then she can carry on until these meds stop working which will be at some point when her body builds up a resistance, but hopefully by then there are other meds that will be developed to help her. She will also need surgery from time to time to remove any tumors that have shrunk but not dissapeared. We are hoping to urgently raise funds to extend her life and to help with domestic expenses as the previous surgery has left her hand semi-paralysed. The only surgery available is an amputation below her left elbow which will give her one year to live, because the cancer is in her nervous system and bloodstream. If we dont raise these funds of R98 000 per month then the only option left is amputation which will only buy her about 12 months or less before she will die. She is currently unable to work due to her hand. Cheree has two young sons and recently got married. Stay up to date with the latest developments, news, progress, pictures and more on her Facebook page. Please see the trust account details below if you would like to contribute or please use this back a buddy to contribute. She has fought so hard guys, and she refuses to give up now, with your help, we can buy her more time with her bills.
