Addi Needs Life Saving Treatment

Personal message

A message from Addi

“13 days post op and by the grace of God am alive and kicking. Surgery took an additional 60 minutes of surgery time as there were complications. (Surgery time costs R300 per minute, for the theatre, excluding surgeon and anaesthetist) Arising from one of the 3 tumours (in the same breast that I had the mastectomy on 5 years ago) had wrapped around my chest wall. Thanks to the prayers for guidance for my stellar surgeon, Dr Nadine Broeze who did her absolute best to remove the tumours, lymph nodes, breast implants and mastectomy (on the good side). We made a decision not to send the tumours to pathology, as this would only be necessary for the chemotherapy and radiation treatment, which I have declined.

As a result of trauma from the surgery and stress from the secondary cancer diagnosis, I have an additional condition called Trigeminal Neuralgia, which is causing extreme pain on the right side of my jaw, cheek bone, eye, with a burning sensation and number lower lip. Thanks to my amazing GP Dr Tracy Paiken, I am on pain blockers for pain management.

First to heal and manage the financial and emotional stress, and then to continue with the local intravenous treatments from the Golding Institute, and the bigger picture is to get to Israel for the treatments that are not available in this country.  In the meantime, continue to count my blessings for the generosity, love and support from family and friends near and far. “

"To be diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time around is probably more devastating for me than the first time. Especially as I had a mastectomy and chemo five years ago and now the cancer has returned and spread to the lymph and bones.

"At first I thought it was just breast implant illness from the reconstruction and that it would be simple enough to have the implants removed. Alas, it was not that simple.

Thanks to your donations, I have been able to begin immunotherapy treatment here in South Africa, which will continue for the next 6 months.

Once enough money is raised I will have life - saving surgery here in SA and then will go to Israel for the balance of the treatments that are not available here.

All your donations are appreciated no matter how big or small.  I have no medical aid and that is why your help is so greatly appreciated".

If you would like more information about the treatment and what is required, please can you contact Samantha Atrash [email protected] who will pass on all details to me
