Personal message

My name is Terri Katz (38) and I live in Johannesburg. I am raising funds for my mother, Glynnis Yutar. 

My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer which has metastised to her brain. She was always the healthiest and most fit person I know. She has undergone chemo for a year and it is taking its toll on her body. She now has the opportunity to use an immunotherapy drug that has shown positive results in improving people's quality of life and chances of survival. If this drug works for my mother, it will be so beneficial for more people in the same position as her. If it can get registered in South Africa it will be much more affordable. Unfortunately, the medical aid will only cover 50% and therefore we need to cover the other 50%.

My mom is, bottom line, an inspiration to me and my whole family as well as all people she knows and meets. She has fought for over a year and never complains. I believe that she can help others in their fight against cancer with her strong mind and positivity, and if it works for her it will hopefully be registered and used for others. 

All the funds will go towards Keytruda, the immunotherapy drug needed to prolong Glynnis's survival and improve her quality of life. 

The cost per treatment of Keytrude is R101 271.52. The funds received will go towards these infusions. Each R50 000 raised will enable her to receive an additional infusion.

Although she has lung cancer she has never smoked which makes this all the more so frustrating for us. She has exercised all her life and always ate healthy options. This is probably the picture of what stress can do to destroy your health.

Throughout the year and a half, she has fought so hard and the fact that she wants to continue this fight means that we need to back her. The chemo has now become too toxic and is making her iller and taking away her quality of life, that is why she would like to try Keytruda if its an option for hope.

*Funds raised will go directly to the relevant medical practitioners*
