Cure4Keanu

Personal message

We are raising funds for Keanu as part of the #Cure4Keanu campaign.

Keanu Moore, a boy from Brackenfell, South Africa who turned three in June, was diagnosed with Stage 4, Neuroblastoma cancer in October 2017.  He had two tumours, multiple bone lesions and his bone marrow showed a 65% infiltration of Neuroblastoma cells on diagnosis.

After 8 sessions of chemotherapy, Keanu showed significant improvement. There was no trace of cancer in his bones or bone marrow and the tumours were smaller. The tumour in his abdomen was surgically removed on the 1st of March and Keanu was released from hospital in less than a week. During March/April 2018, Keanu received another round of chemotherapy to reduce the size of the tumour that was located close to his heart. The chemotherapy was successful in destroying the remaining tumour. Keanu underwent a stem cell transplant at Groote Schuur Hospital, where he remained in isolation for four weeks. Currently he is undergoing three weeks of radiation to rid his body from any possible remaining cancer cells.

In addition to chemotherapy, surgery, stem cell transplantation and radiation, one of the newest forms of treatment for this cancer, is Immunotherapy. This treatment uses medicines to help a patient’s own immune system recognise and destroy cancer cells. Neuroblastoma is a very aggressive cancer type and Immunotherapy treatment is crucial to reduce the 60% chance of relapse. The survival rate for relapsed neuroblastoma patients is less than 5%. Unfortunately, this revolutionary treatment is not available in South Africa for children with Neuroblastoma.  

Keanu has been accepted into the Immunotherapy treatment plan at Sant Joan de Dèu (SJD) Children’s Hospital in Barcelona Spain under the guidance of Dr Jaume Mora. Dr Mora is regarded as one of the leading doctors in the world with regards to developmental tumours such as neuroblastoma and is considered an expert in the field. Keanu and his family are currently in Spain where he has commenced with the first cycle of the GD2 with hu3F8 Immunotherapy, which ends April 2019.

The family must stay in Spain for almost a year with an increase in living costs… Euro vs ZAR. We have raised just over R4million during the past year and desperately need your help to increase this amount to R6,5 million, as Keanu must also receive the latest vaccine available to further decrease the chance of a relapse, which will commence in the spring of 2019 at SJD Children's Hospital.

 

Would you please consider supporting us financially to achieve our goal of finding the #Cure4Keanu?
