Fight for Orlando

Fight for Orlando

Personal message

On the 2nd of December 2016 Orlando was diagnosed with stage 4 lung and bone cancer. After the loss of his job and months of treatment, Orlando and wife Anna decided to move from Cape Town to Springs in Gauteng where they had a greater support system.

On the night of the 2nd of December 2017, exactly one year to the day of his diagnosis during a house robbery Orlando was shot through the abdomen while coming to the aid of his brother in law who was being assaulted. He suffered extensive damage to his abdomen and spinal cord, injuries that have left him partially paralysed from the waist down with no bladder or bowel control.

Despite all of this, Orlando has not given up hope and continues to face this battle with perseverance and the love and support of his wife and two sons.

But the hard fact is that hope is not enough, Orlando and his family are running out of funds to support themselves and mounting medical bills. Anna is Orlando’s primary care giver so she is unable to work.

I met Orlando and Anna 15 years ago when our sons had just started school and we have shared many special moments together. Anna was my safety net whenever I needed someone to look after my son at a moment’s notice; she was always available with a smile. Now it is my turn, help me to give Orlando a fighting chance to get his life back.
