Fighting Cancer for Grant Vanderwagen

Fighting Cancer for Grant Vanderwagen

Personal message

Grant Vanderwagen had a tumour removed in November 2020, the tumour was malignant and called Paraganglioma, a very rare form of cancer. Luckily surgery was successful and the doctors managed to remove the tumour, however, they had to remove Grant's right kidney while doing this. They also had to reconstruct Grant's vena cava which was a success. 

5 months later and Grant has just found out that cancer has spread to his chest, neck and the base of his skull. 

Grant is busy with consultations with doctors and professors to see what the best way forward will be. It does not look good and it seems as if the only options are chemo, radiation or nuclear medicine, sadly, neither of these are cheap.

This is where we'd like to help Grant. While he undergoes consultations, we would like to support him by raising funds to help him pay for the best possible solution. Grant is on medical aid, however, medical aid will not cover any of the procedures due to the surgery he underwent late in 2020.

Grant, his family and friends managed to raise enough funds to cover the first surgery and now that it has spread, we're all hoping to do it again. We know that it will be a long and expensive road to recovery for Grant but with your help he can get through it.

Every bit helps and a small donation could lead to saving Grant's life. Can you help us by donating towards the medical funds for Grant Vanderwagen? Every cent will go towards his medical bills and helping him recover.

On behalf of Grant Vanderwagen, we thank you in advance for the support.
