Update as of 15 August 2018


This has been a rough road. On my 5th chemo session now & it feels as though new challenges keep coming up from blood clots to extreme nausea & vomiting.

Being in & out of the hospital between sessions has made it even more hard to stay positive & push through. After each chemo session I'm in bed for at least 8 days unable to get up without having my heart pounding out of my chest. I'm extremely thankful for the support in the past few months. The next step will be to do an MRI scan to see how we will be continuing.

Update as of 26 April 2018.

Following the PET-CT scan, the oncologist confirmed Bonita’s diagnosis as stage 4a colon cancer. It was confirmed that the cancer spread to her liver. This means that there is a great probability of her undergoing further surgery midway through the chemotherapy (including monoclonal antibody) treatment.

We would like to thank everyone for their generous contributions thus far.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bonita had a major operation on the 5th of April 2018 to remove tumorous growth. Together with the tumor, 15 additional lymph nodes were removed, 12 of which were cancerous.

From initial CT scans, there is a concern that the cancer has spread to her liver, however a PET -CT scan is required to understand the full extent and severeness; this is the scan has been declined by the medical aid scheme.

We are hoping to raise funds to cover the medical expenses not covered by medical aid for Bonita's effective treatment.

The medical aid will cover the chemotherapy, however they will not cover the treatment of additional monoclonal antibodies, which is proven to increase effectiveness of the chemotherapy treatment.

The cost of the PET-CT scan is approx. R27000, and the estimate for the monoclonal antibodies at this stage is R270000.
