CHRISTEL CANCER FUND

I am Kevin Uys from Springs in the Eastrand. My wife Christel Uys was diagnosed with Stage 3B Colon Cancer on the 12th of July 2019.
In the past 4 months, she had a very difficult birth and delivery with our son Marco and admitted to the ICU twice. Her first stay in the ICU was for 8 days due to a blood count of 6.6 and a nonexistent Iron level. She had 7 blood transfusions, 4 plasma transfusions, colonoscopy and gastroscopy as well as several other tests. The 2nd time she had a Right Hemicolectomy where the tumor, as well as half of her colon, was removed, she was in the ICU for 13 days. The cancer spread to some of her lymph nodes and she will have to undergo 6 months of severe chemotherapy. She will also have to have yearly testing after the chemo is done. She had a port implanted as her veins will not be able to handle the chemo and may cause nerve damage.
The medical bills are starting to pile up as our medical aid did not settle some of the bills in full. I also had to take several days of unpaid leave to support my wife in hospital and also take care of our two children.
My wife is a 33-year-old wife and mother of a 4-year-old daughter an 4-month-old baby boy. She is a dedicated teacher of our local LSEN school for children with learning barriers.
She is loved by many and I don't want her to feel like a financial burden and also worry about anything else other than getting better. She will be on temporary incapacity leave during her chemo time as her risk for infection is very high.
Funds raised will be used to cover:
All cost not settled by the Medical aid:
Anesthesiologist cost for both the surgery, scopes and port implant.
Surgeon cost for Hemicolectomy, Scopes and Port implant.
Oncology and Chemotherapy
A wig if she has hair loss due to chemo
An assistant at home to assist with the baby and duties at home.
I want Christel to be focused on healing and enjoy her children. She already lost so much time with her little boy in which was supposed to be her maternity leave.
The funds will go into a bank account where we will distribute to the necessary institutions as we receive the bills as well as to the bills already received.
