Cure Carine

Personal message

Carine de Villiers spends her days making the world a more beautiful place. She does this through her unique paintings capturing the beauty of South African people.  While it is clear that Carine is extremely talented, the reality is that being a young up and coming artist does not always pay, and thus she has not been able to afford a medical aid.

A few days ago, Carine was diagnosed with colon cancer. Tests revealed a 12cm tumor that has intertwined with one of Carine’s fallopian tubes as well as an ovary.

In the next three to four weeks, Carine will need surgery to remove the tumor, after which she will have to start chemotheraphy.  The operation is very delicate and only a few surgeons in South Africa are equipt to do this procedure. 

To help Carine have the best chance at getting better, her friends thought of starting this back a buddy campaign. None of us can cover her medical costs alone, but together we can easily make a difference.

When I look at Carine’s art, I see someone who approaches her fellow man with gentleness, respect and compassion.  However, even with this soft approach, she portrays incredible strength and character in her paintings. This campaign is about helping Carine to get better so she can continue to do what she does best. This campaign is about recognising someone who sees the best in others, and has the courage to share that with the world.

Funds raised will help cover:
Doctor consultation: R13 371.36
Anesthesiologist: R8 694.93
Operation: R114 312.82
Radiologist: R700
Chemotherapy: The amount can only be confirmed once the radiologist examined the tumor and determine the frequency she has to go.

Carine is 33 years old. May she still be painting us when she is 100.

*Funds raised will be transferred directly to the relevant medical practitioner*
